"Wm. Shakespeare's -- Wm. is ye olde abbreviation for William; I would shorten it to Shakespeare's were it not for the iconic Mizzou pizza joint -- certainly offers the dark wood fixtures and dim lighting of an authentic pub. And in the tradition of true British pubs, individual packets of potato chips are sold from a display rack at the bar. But the restaurant's size and the view of Grand Center from its large windows gives it a much more open and airy feel than you would find in the average public house."
