ORIENTAL GARDENS, 23 West Randolph Street

Newest of the Loop's chow meineries is the Oriental Gardens, located on the second floor over Thompson's latest restaurant and across the street from the Oriental Theatre. Here, all is Chinese and sufficiently exotic for the kind of people who go to the Randolph Street movie palaces — and there are plenty in Chicago. Henri Gendron and his orchestra provide music for dancing and the establishment is open until 1 A.M. A few American dishes are served here and such popular Chinese dishes as chop suey and chow mein.
