It's Potato Pancake Day.
Potatoes are like the weather always with us, and at Klube's 156 East Twenty-third Street, potato pancakes are on the menu every Monday, and have been for forty years, in combination with boeuf a la mode. Carl H. Klube provides the venerable recipe in proportions for ten pancakes - a lot perhaps, but they disappear with celerity.

1/2 small onion, grated
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flour
Dash nutmeg
1 egg
1. Mix all ingredients
2. Drop by large spoonfuls into

A little more history and an indication that perhaps Carl Sr. died even before 1959.

New York City - The Old Time Restaurants
( Originally Published 1959 )

Klube's, 156 E. 23rd St., is still another oldtime German restaurant, housed in a building that is 116 years old. At the time of its 95th anniversary, in 1956, there had always been an eating place at that address for 75 years. Originally, it was Klube & Klinger's. Mr. Klinger's sister Agnes married Carl Klube and she is still the food checker there, a position usual in many continental restaurants but rare in New York. Now operated by Carl H. Klube (son of Carl and Agnes).

Thank you for posting all of your information on the Klinger Klube's. I have been researching the Klinger's for years and kept hitting road blocks, I knew Henry Agnes' brother was a butcher and Henry, and Joseph were Nephews of my Great Great Grandmother, but that was it. Agnes was named for her grandmother Agnes Klinger wife of Adamus Jacobus Klinger, born in Bavaria. Thanks for the information, Henry and Carl Klube ran a Hotel together in 1912 before Henry broke off to start his butcher shop. Klinger and Koester had a huge shop with sometimes as many as 12 butchers working there. My Mom and Uncle both remember going there and getting slices of bologna as a treat. Thanks again.

Hi Peter,
My name is Ronald Klube. My father was Richard Klube, my grandfather was Carl Klube. His mother I believe was Agnes Klube. I received a letter from you regarding the Anna Ritter's will and a letter she wrote in 1942. I would like for you to send me anything you have regarding this. My address is 4 Cristin Court, Bloomimgburgh, NY 12721. I understand I am the successor and the only male Klube left in the family since my dad died in 1980 and my granfather in 1992. I look forward to receiving this information.

Thank You,
Ronald Klube.
