(I first blogged about Mister S way back here in 2009.)
Sue filled me in on some of the background of the well-remembered restaurant with the distinctive rotating 'S' on its sign. She said that her father and his partners were involved with Mister S from 1964 through 1974. Her uncle and her cousin ran it.
Sue has fond memories of the chicken served at the restaurant.
Growing up in Lorain as the daughter of one of the owners of Mister S had its perks. "My other great memory of Mr. S was that I always had a primo spot from which to watch any parade on Broadway."
But it had its drawbacks too.
"The flip side was that until I was 12, I was never allowed to go to McDonalds!"
Sue also mentioned that Mister S continued to have a presence in the Slutzker household long after her family's involvement with the restaurant ended. "I know for years in our house – even through the '80's – we were still using Mr. S order pads as scrap paper!"
****Special thanks to Sue for sharing some of her memories of Mister S, a Lorain original.
