  1. I have fond memories of eating at the Little Corporal Restaurant in Chicago some 50 years ago. I was a college student, and this was a classy yet affordable little restaurant to which I could proudly take friends or a date. This menu cover certainly brings back great memories.

  2. I remeber a classy little Restaurant owned and operated by one George Missious in the 70,s.

    Maybe this is the same one.

  3. I remember The Little Corporal Restaurant, I believe it was in the Bank of America building. They make the best french toast. It soaked overnight in a mixture of Amaretto, egg and heavy cream, then deep fried and served with powdered sugar. That was in the late 60’s and I still try to make it on my own, come close but the memory is just to good to duplicate, still I will try.

  4. I remember that menu! My father, mother, and I would drive down from Milwaukee to see one of the museums and we would go to supper at The Little Corporal. It was in the late ’60’s and I was only about 10. It seemed so exotic and fancy to me! Thanks for the memory!

  5. Same here Tracy… as a little girl, my aunt and uncle would take me downtown for lunch and this was one of their favorites! The menu brought tears to my eyes as they have been gone for several years. Fortunate to have experienced so much as a child! No there anymore, but I take my kids to similar. Great Memories!

  6. I used to work at the restaurant. It was run by the family member of the owner. I quit a secretarial position to work there. I fondly remember Uncle Marty. A great place to work. Tatjana

  7. In December 1967, I was in my last year of college, and I was thinking of going to law school at the University of Illinois. I took the 20th century limited from Grand Central State in New York to Chicago. The train got stuck near Gary, Indiana due to one of the worst blizzards that ever hit the Chicago area. They sent buses to rescue us. A friend who I met on the train invited me to stay at his place due to the fact that I had no place to stay. We were walking to his place when we stopped at a little restaurant for some quick refreshments. It was The Little Corporal. I remember it well. I had the best chocolate mousse that I had ever had, and indeed, I have never had another chocolate mousse as good as that. I can still taste it. I am sorry to learn that The Little Corporal no longer exists.
