180 EAST DELAWARE RESTAURANT
Most charming and interesting of French restaurants in Chicago, just off the Avenue. The ceiling is beamed, the floor is made of tile, dark brocaded draperies hang over doorways and windows, real candles are on the tables, a fireplace is at one end and a big table of most tempting hors d*oeuvres is at the other, and all is delightfully atmospheric and redolent of the Old World. But most interesting of all is Jacques Fumagally, the maitre d'hotel, who goes about welcoming guests in true Parisian style. Born in Monte Carlo, Jacques was formerly with the Ritz in Paris and the Sevilla Biltmore in Havana. With the able assistance of Chef Julliard Meldou, Jacques offers you a few specialties, such as cottage cheese a la Jacques and 180 Delaware special salad. The menu is large and contains all the popular French dishes. Table d'hote luncheon, 75 cents, and table d'hote dinners at $1.00 and $1.50. This French restaurant is located in swanky and exclusive Streeterville, once the 143 bailiwick of old Cap'n George Wellington Streeter, the militant squatter. Maitre d^ hotel: Jacques Fumagally
