Xavier Cugat Print – “Dining at Melvyn’s”

Xavier Cugat Print

“Dining At Melvyn’s” is a large panoramic sketch drawn by “The Rumba King”, Cuban bandleader/caricaturist Xavier Cugat created when Melvyn Haber (“Mr. Palm Springs”) opened the restaurant in 1975. Melvyn’s continues to be a popular Palm Springs restaurant/tourist stop, and this piece featured many of the new “regulars”, or at least 1975 Palm Springs regulars.
