The restaurant was opened in 1929 by Batt’s parents, Tillie and Harry, and operated for years in ground floor space in what was once the Lexington Hotel, later the New Michigan Hotel, where gangster Al Capone lived from 1928 to 1931. For many years it was run by Sam and his brother Nathan, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with both a cocktail lounge and a coffee shop.
