  • More Kapok Tree Inn memories

    Letters to the EditorWe welcome your feedback.


    Dear Nolan,
    [Re: the recent windfall of letters recalling the Kapok Tree restaurant] I was one of the first waiters at KTI in the summer of 1974. Before that they only used waitresses. It was a great place to work. We had 9 dining rooms that we had opened during peak season and umpteen bars. There was usually a wait staff of 100 during the dinner hours.

    I, too, remember the green peas in a cream sauce but not sure how the sauce was made. My favorites were their corn fritters and the breaded shrimp.

    KTI closed its doors many years ago and is now a very large music mall. A number of the dining rooms are used for displaying different type of instruments.

    It was a great place to work. I was there for 4 summers. Many fond memories.

    I hope this is helpful.
