I figure this particular thread belongs here, but there is a much more detailed discussion of Louis’ Italian-American Restaurant in the GF Trilogy forum. Anyway…

“Try the veal. It’s the best in the city.”

But – what was the dish? For the curious, it’s best to remember the Chinese proverb: “One who has choice, has troubles.” Here, copied from an actual Louis’ Restaurant menu from 1923 [Edit: Or possibly somewhat later - SV] are a few interesting items – and prices. Veal noted with as asterisk (*).

ENTRÉE
*Scallops of Veal
With Mushrooms ...……….......60
*Scallops of Veal picante ...…..50
Rolled Beef Italian style…........50
Meat Balls with Spaghetti….....40
*Veal Fricassee with Peppers...50
*Cutlets a la Milanese......….....40
*Cutlets Parmigiana….…...…..50
*Cutlets a la Swiss…………....50

ROASTS
Roast Pork………………….…50
*Roast Veal………………...…45
Roast Chicken with Salad.....…60
Roast Leg of Lamb….........…..50

STEAKS AND CHOPS
Sirloin Steak…........………..…70
“ Sailor style.........…........….....75
Steak alla Pizzaiola…................75
“ with Mushrooms.....................85
Tenderloin Steak…...........…..1.00
“ en casserole…......................1.15

*Veal Chops Fried…….....…....50

Looks like a lot to choose from. (Maybe Louis was offering a "Special" for sit-downs? confused )

"For me, there's only my wife..."

"Sure I cook with wine - sometimes I even add it to the food!"

"When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies?"

"It was a grass harp... And we listened."

"Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? Every, every minute?"

"No. Saints and poets, maybe... they do some."

Adjusting for inflation those are still pretty great prices compared to today.
