BRENNAN'S, 128 North Wells Street

Home-made apple pies that give the ones mother used to make a close run, and Southern fried chicken as good as any served below the Mason-Dixon line, are the outstanding specialties of Brennan's located in a Wells Street basement at the west end of the theatre district. Mrs. Ursula Brennan, who has been conducting this restaurant here for a number of years, is rapidly becoming known all over town for these specialties, as well as for her luscious strawberry shortcake and savory corned beef and cabbage. Lawyers, executives of the Chicago Telephone Company nearby, and those fortunate ones among the Randolph Streeters who have discovered the place, make up the principal part of Mrs. Brennan's clientele. Prices reasonable.

Maitresse d'hotel: Mrs. Ursula Brennan
