ROUND TABLE INN, 57 East Chicago Avenue

Another Godsend to the poor artists and writers of the quarter. Located in the basement of the Vogel & Company grocery store. You walk through the store, pass behind the counter, and enter a door leading to the basement. No fancy decorations, but all is clean and fresh and intimate. There are a number of large round tables under the shaded lamps. But the thing that crowds the Round Table Inn each evening is the well-cooked table d'hote dinner for 50 cents. Which, let us repeat, is a Godsend to many Tower Towners. Superior 3886.
