Restaurant Details

The Milam Building at Travis and Soledad was erected in 1928, just in time for the Recession, a small setback that didn't deter it from becoming the center of the then-known oil universe. The Milam was also the first fully air-conditioned building in the world. Hold up your hand if you knew that. Although the oil industry has long since moved on to power centers in other cities, the Milam, with its classically detailed spit-and-polish lobby, still retains an air of burnished respectability. You half expect to see tenant remnants of the building's heyday walking the corridors - and perhaps you do. One friend, whose father had an office in the building, remembers eating there as a kid, not however, at the '30s-era prices: Roast Prime Rib of Fancy Northern Beef au jus topped that list at 22 cents. - Ron Bechtol
