Lower wrapper with a aerial view of the restaurants layout. 17" x 10-3/4". Glossy card stock, outer wrappers illustrated to look like wood printed in dark green to recto and verso. Internally the menu items are printed in red and green. Slips are multicolored: 5 are pink, 7 are yellow, 1 blue, 4 salmon colored, 1 orange. They are printed in mostly black lettering, with one printed in green and red and another printed in brown. All slips are stapled in. The menu is now housed in a mylar sleeve. A VG copy. Outer wrappers are a little scuffed, edges and corners are rubbed and bumped, some age toning and foxing to the edges. Some soiling, less soiling to the interior. Overall a bright and legible copy. It doesn't look like much form the upper wrapper, but then you open it and its a pop of color! Item #48630

"Wolfie Cohen's Rascal House was a Jewish delicatessen located at the intersection of 172nd Street and Collins Avenue in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. It opened in May 1954 and closed on March 30, 2008. Sporting a large neon sign in the front, the building was designed in the 1950s Miami Modern style.

The establishment catered to vacationing New Yorkers of Jewish descent; PanAmerican Airlines offered Wolfie's Cheesecake as a menu item on flights between Miami and New York, while Northeast Airlines had the restaurant cater its same flights exclusively. Wolfie's restaurants served an "Early Bird" menu from 3-6 that appealed to more frugal diners. The neon sign makes an appearance at the beginning of the video for "Night Fever" by the Bee Gees."
