In honor of the reopening of the Pump Room (1301N. State Pkwy, 312-787-3700), we're taking things back old school. While the refreshed Ian Schrager version is one of the hottest tables in town, one can't forget the class and grandeur of the original, which opened almost 73 years ago — Oct. 1, 1938 — by Ernie Byfield. But the Pump Room isn't the only old kid on campus. I know I personally have an attachment to every one of the Chicago originals on this pole, thanks to my parents (lifelong Chicagoans), who made sure I knew what this city is all about food-wise (thanks, Mom and Dad!). Whether you realized you were eating in an oldie but a goodie, or simply a good restaurant, where is your favorite? I'll write about the winner in more detail!
