"Fritzel's restaurant on the corner of State and Lake Streets was Chicago's equivalent to the Brown Derby in L.A. -- a restaurant patronized by stars of stage and screen." Chicago Tribune, July 26, 2004
Between 1947 and 1972 the restaurant served the elite of Chicago, Hollywood, and New York with exquisite food from a 100 item menu, prepared in a spotless kitchen, and offered with gracious service.
More about Fritzel's and its owner Joe Jacobson, a celebrity in his own right. For more details on the postcard click on the image.
