LITTLE COZZI'S, 1468 South Michigan Avenue

Little "Mickey" Cozzi, who conducted a popular restaurant on West Taylor Street, among the fruit stands of the west side Italian quarter, recently moved his chef and staff of waiters and tables and chairs into this old brown-stone residence in South Michigan Avenue, thereby providing the salesmen and business men of "Auto Row" a chance to partake of his excellent Italian board, Cozzi's spaghetti with mushrooms is very savory, and so are his veal scallopine and ravioli. His friends from all over town have followed him here, and at dinner the place is crowded.

Maitre d'hotel: Mickey Cozzi
