This dining room at 800 Clinton in Oak Park got me thinking…
Dining doesn’t alway need to be fine but in my book it should always be together. Nutritionists, sociologists, teachers, chefs, and of course Grandma, extol the benefits of family meal time, yet fewer and fewer families eat together.
Houses in my community were built for sharing meals with separate formal dining rooms set off from the kitchen. However, more and more home renovations combine the kitchen, dining room, and family rooms fracturing the ritual of a shared meal.
Over a Memorial Day meal with friends we asked why their daughter decided to get a JD after getting her BS in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. “With both of us being lawyers, she grew up talking about law around the dinner table. Go figure!” She’ll make a great patent attorney. I’ll bet when she has children she’ll gather them around the family table nightly.
