The Blue Parrot Patio

Post by therman7g »

Why not recreate the Blue Parrot on Westgate?

An idea whose time has come ... again



By JEANETTE FIELDS





BRAINSTORM

Did you know that Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built a restaurant in Oak Park in 1934? It was located on the second floor at 1120 Westgate. The building is on the north side of Westgate, but the numbers have been changed. The restaurant, called The Blue Parrot Patio, involved Wright, the Taliesin Fellowship and many famous Oak Parkers.



Wright's space was called "The Celebrity Room" and was off the main dining room of the Blue Parrot, owned by Grace Pebbles, who ran Le Petit Gourmet, an upscale restaurant on Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

The Celebrity Room of the Blue Parrot Patio Restaurant

Post by Randolph C. Henning »

The interior remodeling that created the Celebrity room (ca. 1934) in the Blue Parrot Patio restaurant in Oak Park is not an officially recognized Wright design, per the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives.
