THE PHALANSTERY, 915 Rush Street

Both the soul and the body is fed at the Phalanstery, a small restaurant featuring sea foods and lectures on life and letters. It is conducted by Jack Ryan, a well-known Tower Towner, and his wife, and offers sandwiches, coflfee, and a variety of sea foods on its menu. The Phalanstery was the name of the edifice in which the community of the Fourierites lived in France. Local writers and philosophers lecture at Ryan's establishment on Saturday evenings.
