This 1970s matchbook is from Marti's and was once located at 1041 Dumaine Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. The original Marti's was the city's first openly-gay gourmet restaurant. Unstated but quite obvious, that quality brought in a large number of customers from the local arts world, with their audiences. The big-name was Tennessee Williams, one of many well-known regulars. Marti's opened in 1972 with a menu like that of a neighborhood cafe. A few years later, owner Marti Shambra pushed the concept upscale. The place shortly became a four-star eatery, and it remained so until Marti's deteriorating health and fire brought the restaurant to an end. While it is no longer open, it is lovingly remembered by those who dined. Good vintage condition with some wear. These go for $21 and up. Measures 2" T and 1.5" W.
