Vintage Menu Print: Chicken Hut, Washington DC
+ $ shipping surcharge
Where chicken is king.
The official motto of The Chicken Hut in Washington D.C. was, “An unusual eating place where chicken is king,” which the artist behind this 1940s menu cover took to heart. The most regal of chickens sits on his throne, complete with crown, scepter, ermine cape, and fawning subjects. Don’t miss the included copy of the cocktail menu—it’s chicken-themed too, naturally.
