It is raining here and I had no inside project so have been killing time
One of them was a great restaurant in Santa Barbara at the El Encanto Hotel
in the early 70s. I was in SB taking photo classes for a couple of weeks at
Brooks Institute which was just across the street from the (then) somewhat
worse for wear hotel; however, the house restaurant - Cafe Madrid - was
wonderful...a very extensive menu, not cheap but not really expensive either
and wonderful food; at least I thought so but I was just about the only
customer. Does anyone remember it and/or know what happened to it?
As long as I'm on memory lane, here are some other places I miss...
Cafe Bohemia, Chicago. Great roast duck
London Chop House, Detroit. Best calves liver I've ever had.
Jack's, San Francisco. Good everything and waiters that really knew their
Musso & Franks, Hollywood (may still be there). Chain restaurants, eat your
Ciro's, Honolulu. Always had vichyssoise, always served complimentary
