The owner of Fondue Stube announced an early, voluntary retirement in 2010, but a barrage of encouragement and love notes scribbled onto lightly used napkins stopped the fondue guru from closing the establishment’s doors. Because of this outpouring, Fondue Stube has continued to flood West Rogers Park with its sizzling fondue and house-made dipping sauces for more than 33 years.
