History of The Turquoise Room Restaurant
The inaugural run started on Track 5 in Chicago’s Dearborn Station on May 12th 1936. “Ellie,” Eleanor Powell was named its first passenger and so began its illustrious flirtation with the Hollywood Stars of the day.
The Turquoise Room was a favorite of the studio chiefs and stars of the day for their private dining pleasure. We hope you will enjoy your visit to our Turquoise Room. Also, consider railroad travel to our friendly restaurant as we are an Amtrak stop.
