CHILDS, 55 West Washington Street

In recent months, this representative of the great chain of restaurants has been getting considerable of a "play" from the show people, nighthawks, and bons vivants of the downtown district. Tired of the poor quality of foods served in the gaudier night clubs, these gay persons have been dropping into this open-all-night place to eat food that is food before going home. Often you will see silk top hats and ermine wraps, or a theatrical star or two, among the diners. The food served here, of course, is wholesome and skillfully prepared.
