Noodles Romanoff

I realize there are probably lots of people named Romanoff and that they are all happy and healthy, but all I can think of is the doomed Romanoff family from pre-Revolution Russia. And this dish should raise their memory, for good reason. Trading on the name of the tragic family, there was a very successful restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA named Romanoff’s. Turns out, the owner claimed to be a cousin of the murdered Czar, but was in fact from a different country entirely and not related at all! The side dish of choice among the Hollywood elite was Noodles Romanoff. It became so popular that Betty Crocker and Rice-A-Roni purchased the recipe and sold boxed versions for home makers across America. The restaurant closed in the 1960s, and the noodles went out of fashion.
