Long-gone Italian restaurants – a reader with a question

This in the TNT Diner inbox this morning:


I’m a former resident of Tacoma, south end.  We used to go to two different Italian restaurants in that end of town, La Pergola in Spanaway, then South Tacoma, and Amerigo’s in University Place ….. I am looking for some kind of contact or any recipe info the TNT might have published.  We’re talking the 1950’s.

Thanks for your help.

Unfortunately, a hand search of our microfiche library could take days or weeks and I’m on deadline for two stories and a project this week and next (doh!).

I recommended the reader connect with the Northwest Room at the Tacoma Public Library for some background research. But I thought perhaps TNT Diner readers may have background information, fodder, maybe even recipes for this reader. If you do, please comment.
