Rector’s on Broadway was a trendy restaurant in the theater district in New York City at the turn of the century and was frequented by celebrities, Wall Street gurus and socialites. Rector's originated the "get 'em out quick" dishes that were favorites of the Broadway crowd who relied on tempting dishes served quickly in order to meet the theaters' strict curtain calls. The restaurant closed with the coming of prohibition, but the proprietor, George Rector, opened a new hotel restaurant, Frontier House, in Lewiston (near Niagara Falls) soon after, taking all his recipes to the new restaurant.
