LAURA JACOBSEN'S, 1014 South Michigan Avenue

This place is a large dining room, with no particular decorative features, but serving food of substantial and wholesome quality. It is open for luncheon and dinner and the menu is both table d'hote and a la carte, and prices are within the means of the average person. Patronized mostly by business executives in the big skyscrapers at the south end of the downtown district, and by clubwomen from nearby Avenue clubs. This is a branch of the older establishment at 5311 Lake Park Avenue, in Hyde Park, founded by Laura Jacobsen many years ago.




1931 - 1931
