AnswerThe Forum restaurant on W.Madison existed till it had a fatal fire of 3 firemen in Jan,1973.
It was a 2 level cafeteria style style restaurant. When I was a kid, my grandmother would take me there. I liked the idea of picking out my own food.
The buildings in ancient Rome were either named for their purpose, or for the person building them. Examples are the Curia, which is the senate house or the forum borarium, the cattle/meat market. Buildings named after a person would be the Library of Augustus, the Baths of Caracalla, the Forum Julia.
