Lawry’s Prime Rib Dinner for $1.25, Plus Some Wishful Thinking

What if these other classic L.A. establishments celebrated their anniversaries in the same way?

Lawry’s the Prime Rib, an establishment that has lived on La Cienega in Beverly Hills since 1938, is this year celebrating its 75th Anniversary. And its celebrating in a big way: the first 1,000 guests to dine at Lawry’s on June 11 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. receive a Lawry’s Cut prime rib dinner—including Spinning Bowl Salad, mashed potatoes, and Yorkshire pudding—for the original price, $1.25. That’s $40.75 less than the meal’s current menu price ($42).

This, of course, got me thinking. If only In-n-Out had rolled back prices in honor of its 60th Anniversary in 2008. Their prices are reasonable, but paying 30¢ for a cheeseburger would be kind of fun.

I’d probably have a pancake problem if I could eat the pancakes at Du-Par’s for their original 1938 price of 48¢ a plate, including melted butter and maple syrup.

But my favorite fantasy is the idea of paying just 10¢ for an ice cold gin martini at Musso and Frank’s, which was established in 1919.
