HUYLER'S, 917 North Michigan Avenue
The modern atmosphere of this important Avenue restaurant, with its four dining rooms, is in keeping with the building in which it is located — the cloud-piercing Palmolive Building, a modernistic skyscraper with setbacks, which, with its powerful Lindbergh beacon, dominates the entire near north side both day and night. The Pink Room, first of the rooms, is done in rose-pink and contains a lunch counter and booths. Then comes the Gold Room, a formal dining room where prices are higher. The Walton Coffee Room, at the rear, done in blue and silver, is a sort of sandwich shop. The Fountain Room adjoining is self-explanatory. The foods served in all these rooms are of the best quality and not only typists but fashionable men and women from the Gold Coast patronize the various rooms daily.
