—210 Howard Street —Was Hemingway thinking about the Braun Restaurant when he wrote about Brown's Beanery in Torrents of Spring? In 1882, John George and Margareta Braun began a hotel/restaurant business that spanned 55 years and three generations. The Braun was known for its delicious food, advertising a "large pleasant dining room, meal and lunches served, oysters served in all styles, best day board for the price. Regular meals 25¢." Travelers and local folk found a lively meeting place full of upbeat piano music, local news, stories, and laughter.
