Man, the Gaslight was a real clip joint!

I'm reading Suze Rotolo's autobiography, and there are illustrations of a menu from the Gaslight Cafe in the Village. No date on the menu, but from context it must be from around 1961 or 2.

60 cents for a cup of coffee or a Coke. A buck and a quarter for a cheeseburger. AND there was a cover charge.

I wonder if anybody but tourists ever went there? Those prices are at least 4 times what they'd be in a joint just a few doors away.
