THE BLACK OAKS, 7631 Sheridan Road

Occupies one of those curious and interesting houses built by the great American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. You get the effect of dining in a private home, what with many rooms all about, candlesticks holding real burning candles, unusual china, and all sorts of glassware. All of these objets d'art, of course, are carefully and artistically arranged, and dinner at the Black Oaks, from the point of view of food, decorations, service, and architecture is nothing if not an esthetic adventure. Milk-fed broilers, mushrooms under glass, and filet mignon are specialties. Luncheon is $1.50, and dinner $2.50 and $3.00. You'd better call up first — Briargate 2646.
