Restaurant Francais, Chicago

1950? Menu: Restaurant Francais.  2442 North Clark Street, Chicago.  "Fables de La Fontaine."  9" x 14".  $4.99 through Ebay, May, '19.

When was a complete dinner $9.95?!  The offerings look delectable.  The front cover features a drawing of FC, and the back cover offers La Fontaine's text of the fable.  I could find no information online about when this institution went out of business.  There is a seven-digit phone number, and those seem to have started in the 50's, while area codes seem to have been added in the 60's.
