Manic Monday Bonus--Golden Age DC Had The Best Restaurants!

Ted Grant has gone to watch his pal Sock Smith defend his boxing title:

But afterwards, Smith has a shocking announcement:

And so, within a couple of months, A beautiful new restaurant graced the environs of Madison Square Garden Oval:

Well, of course a rival restaurateur (who is also a gangster!) can't stand seeing his joint lose business to Sock, which results in nasty sabotage schemes, which results in Wildcat becoming involved.

And, because this is DC Comics and because they gave us a brilliantly daffy building, the final beat-down between Wildcat and our villain takes place on the roof of boxing-glove shaped eatery:

Good gravy, I love the Golden Age!!

From Comic Cavalcade #2 (1943)
