  1. Just curious if this place is still around. Found an old business card in my dad old papers. Out of all all of them this once caught my eye.


    • Hi Ivette,

      Thanks for the message. It appears the restaurant went out of business several years ago, but perhaps only sometime in the last two decades. It comes up in Google search results at that location, so it could not be too long ago. The line of buildings, however, appear to have been replaced by a new bank building. The old building and signage were there as late as 2007, though the business appeared closed, as seen on Google Street View. You may have seen this already, but here’s a photo of Ferndell’s from around 2004. https://www.flickr.com/photos/katherineofchicago/4178205604
