Order Up!: The Henry Ford's Lamy's Diner with Curator Donna Braden
Sunday October 20, 2019: 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Malletts Creek Branch: Program Room
Lamy's Diner sits smack in the middle of Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, with period menus, paper straws, and an iconic counter. But the truest testament to the times are the dishes served up with '40s friendliness. Donna Braden, Senior Curator & Curator of Public Life at The Henry Ford Museum, discusses bringing Lamy's Diner back to life in the form of not just an installation, but also a dining experience inside the Museum from what's on the plates to how they created the menu.
