Duck Inn

4845 South Parkway*

Mrs. Elier Richardson, a large, amiable colored woman and an expert cook, is proprietor of this dining room on the first floor of an old mansion.  Her fried chicken à la Richardson is delicious and done to a turn; so are the roast duck, the frogs’ legs, scallops, hot biscuits, waffles, butterscotch pie and lemon pie, and the corn bread.  Her Sunday dinners are $1.00 and many white people come to her board.  Most of her patrons belong to the professional and commercial classes on the south side.  Kenwood 6220.

* South Parkway was re-named Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in 1969.
