FRASCATI'S, 619 North Wabash Avenue

An old-timer in Tower Town, as restaurants go. Has a wide reputation for first-rate Italian and French cooking. This one too occupies an old town house, across the street from the big Medinah Temple. Not a few celebrities are seen here in the evening. Mentioned in John Gunther's novel, "The Red Pavilion." Whether such mention gives it added prestige, we don't know, but the spaghetti, ravioli, and filet mignon here are unforgettable. Open for luncheon and dinner. Delaware 0714.
