Brunch at The Pump Room

The Pump Room is a Chicago Classic! A Chicago Landmark open in 1938, Booth One, perhaps the more renowned table in the country, attracted the most attention. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall celebrated their wedding in Booth One, as did Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood. Liza Minelli grew up in Booth One and has fond memories of dining there with her mother, Judy Garland. Ms. Garland immortalized the restaurant in the lyrics to “Chicago”, with the words “we’ll eat at The Pump Room/Ambassador East, to say the least”. And of course, Frank Sinatra held court in Booth One countless times. I had some lovely oatmeal and dipped my bacon in blueberry syrup. Yummy
