Hello Recipe Hunter,

I am seeking the recipe for a childhood favorite: a whipped jello-ish 
dessert served in the Bird Cage at Lord & Taylor's in New York City, 
in the 1960s.
The dessert was pink (strawberry, I guess) and there was a cream on 
top of the pink jello-ish square. These were selected from a rolling cart.
I would be so grateful if you could find it. Thank you.


Hi Katharine,

I am sorry to say that I have combed the Web and my other resources with no success finding any recipes at all from Lord & Taylor or The Bird Cage

You might be interested in this site: Lunching in the Bird Cage"

I did find a couple of menus from The Bird Cage, but they shed no light on the dessert that you describe. They just said desserts: "From the Wagon."

I will post this. Maybe one of my readers can assist. It would be of help to know what the restaurant itself called the dessert.
