And now we come to the cafeteria style of restaurant, an institution as American as the Statue of Liberty. Most of the first-class cafeterias in Chicago, such as the Ontra and Harmony, are located on Wabash Avenue, where they cater to the employees of State Street department stores. Here, at the Arcade, you have a representative example of this style of restaurant. It is located on the second floor of the Arcade Building. Fresh vegetables are featured here, including the New England boiled dinner.
