One night in 1937, Bob Cobb, then owner of The Brown Derby, prowled hungrily in his restaurant kitchen for a snack. Opening the huge refrigerator, he pulled out this and that: a head of lettuce, an avocado, some romaine, watercress, tomatoes, some cold breast of chicken, a hard-boiled egg, chives, cheese and some old-fashioned French dressing. He started chopping. Added some crisp bacon -- swiped from a busy chef. The Cobb salad was born. Sid Grauman (Grauman Chinese Theatre), who was with Cobb that midnight, asked the next day for a Cobb Salad. It was so good that it was put on the menu. Cobb's midnight invention became an overnight sensation with Derby customers, like movie mogul Jack Warner, who regularly dispatched his chauffeur to pick up a carton of the mouth-watering salad.
