Hugo's Log Cabin
Boston News Bureau Dinner & Dance
July 28, 1930
Hungarian-born restaurateur Hugo Ormo operated several seafood restaurants in Massachusetts. Hugo’s Log Cabin was designed to look like a rustic Swiss hunting lodge, but with moose antlers rather than ibex horns mounted over the stone fireplaces. The set menu at this dance was called a “shore dinner,” featuring crabmeat cocktail, clam chowder, steamed clams, baked stuffed lobster, combination salad, and fresh blueberry pie.
