Here we have a dinner menu that has both a la carte and table d’hôte sides. But it was used on the City of St. Louis, a train that had a diner but no cafe car.
However, the number of entrées on both sides of the menu has still been pared down from earlier years. The table d’hôte side has the usual salmon, lamb chops, prime rib, and sirloin steak, but is missing a fifth entrée such as chicken or ham. The a la carte side has just two sandwiches and four salads including the chef’s salad.
