Let's Meet For Lunch At Marquis'!
Whether it's a quick noontime pause in the workday or a more leisurely time to socialize with friends on the weekend, lunch has always been an important part of the day.
In 1920s Chicago, the popular spot for lunch was the Marquis Lunch cafeterias that once dotted the city with a dozen or so locations. Striking Art Deco interiors and tasty food at reasonable prices made them very popular - a place that felt special even when just popping in for a quick bite.
The last Marquis Lunch closed its doors in 1962 and now the once-popular eatery is part of the city's history. Nothing remains but fading memories from long-time Chicago residents and a very small collection of original bowls that we recently uncovered.
Super-sturdy with great graphics, they will do your own "soup of the day" proud!
