CARSON'S, southeast corner, State and Madison Streets

The North and South Tea Rooms, on the eighth floor, are large and there are both table d'hote and a la carte luncheons. Music is furnished by the Carson Pirie Scott & Company Trio. The foods are admirable and the seasonable dishes especially are to be recommended. Afternoon tea is served in the South Tea Room, where the atmosphere is quiet and restful. The Men's Grill, in the new men's store at Monroe Street and Wabash Avenue, is modelled on Haddon Hall, a sixteenth-century Tudor structure in England. Here, you may eat a special 75 cent and $1.00 table d'hote luncheon. Service is also a la carte.
