MISS ELLIS TEA SHOP, 717 North Michigan Avenue

Most elegant and high-toned of the EUis chain of tea rooms in Chicago. The interior is modern and the wallpaper is a delight to the esthetically-inclined. Patronized by smartly-gowned women and by women who come here to look at the gowns. The cuisine is commendable and the numerous old family recipes used in this place make the menu inviting. The chicken pie is something you shouldn't miss. Luncheons are 50 and 65 cents and dinners 75 cents and $1.00. Sunday dinners are $1.25 and $1.50. The waitresses are lively, intelligent, and courteous.
