The New York World's Fair
The Fair has 74 restaurants, featuring everything from Belgian waffles to Basque cuisine to 99-cent Chinese dinners imported frin Duluth, Minn.
10 September 1964, Appleton (Wisc.) Post Crescent, pg.D1, col. 2:
Two modestly priced snacks which shouldn't be overlooked whole wandering down Fair streets are the luscious Belgian waffles piled high with fresh fruit and whipped cream and the deliciously hot pizzas sold from individual wedge-size to huge whole ones. The waffles are found at a stand across from the Belgian Village and the pizzas on the farthest avenue of the Fair.
