held up twice in one night
. . Two burglars came first,
cleaned him out . . . and
when another two guys
showed up for the same pur-
pose, Sam said, "Sorry fel-
lows, you're too late!"
Darby's was a dining
showplace of the Midwest
. . . a many-powered entity
that Sam Boesky was well
proud of . . . There was a
small lunch counter for the
quick coffee and sandwich
set, coffee shop for those
with a little more time, a
beautiful dining room for
sumptuous dining . . . the
Skylight Lounge with Bar-
tender Tommy Chadwick
tossing drinks behind the
bar (without his canaries)
. . . Chris Lancaster serving
drinks and food at the tables
. . . Charlie Dubin doing his
rhythmic thing at the piano
. . . and private banquet
room.
Nestled off in one
corner was a delicatessen
shop specializing in
Jewish style foods and
beautifully packaged gift

boxes.

After the fire, Sam had
about 15 offers from others
to open up another Darby's
. . . without a dime . . . but
turned them all down.
However, the oft asked
question, "When will there
be another Darby's?" was
really almost answered .. .
Sam and Bernie, at one
time, did seriously consider
taking over the former
Town & Country Club .. .
now Hamilton Place.
How did the name Dar-
by's come about? . . . Accord-
k ing to Bernie Kerner, he be-
lieves that five names were
put into a hat . . . and this is
the one that was picked .. .
Other stories say it was
taken from the Darby's in
England or the Darby's in
Florida ... Wherever the
name was still put in a hat.
The success of Darby's
was a grand tribute to the
restaurant know-how of
Sam Boesky . . . whose
reputation had become na-
tionally known for the very
best food and the finest serv-
ice possible.
Darby's was considered
one of the top restaurants in
the country, serving delici-
ous delicacies in beautiful,
pleasant surroundings.
For Sam Boesky, the nos-
talgia of his first delicates-
sen on Farnsworth and
