1950's Italian Restaurant with Organ Grinder & Monkey?

Recommended Posts

I moved to Alief in 1945 and every Sunday my parents and grandparents would drive to Houston for lunch at many, many restaurants. There was one in particular that I can't stop thinking about and I have no idea what its name was. It would have been in the 50's and my guess is it was Downtown. After we would leave the restaurant, out on the sidewalk would be an organ grinder with his cute little costumed monkey and I would give it pennies.

Anyone else remember that?
