Mr. Wall,

Forwarded for your review and consideration.  Have a great day!

Best regards,

Arthur Connors
Reservations Coordinator

Dear Barry:

Thanks for your interest in the Hotel del Coronado.

As far as I know, the Caesar salad was "invented" in Tijuana, but I'm not
sure when (early 1900s, I'm thinking).

I believe the Casesar salad, as well as other Mexican food (such as tacos),
are a relatively recent addition to our menus, probably added after 1960 or
even after 1970.

Thanks again for thinking of The Del.

Dear Hotel del Coronado,

I am studying the origin of the Caesar Salad, and your hotel was one of the
first to serve it.  I am also studying the taco and other foods.
When did these items first appear on your hotel menus?  Where can one find
historic menus from your hotel?
