OT: Google failed me

It is raining here and I had no inside project so have been killing time Googling things.
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 business.
Musso & Franks, Hollywood (may still be there). Chain restaurants, eat your hearts out!
Ciro's, Honolulu. Always had vichyssoise, always served complimentary antipasto <sigh>

I can go for steak. The only fish I eat is tuna (in the can) and flounder. None of those giant insects that live on the bottom of the ocean either (crab, lobster, shrimp).

Heh, I googled "Things" and came up with "Things - task management on the Mac".
I thought maybe Thing from the Adam's Family would show up.

Nit-picking. that's "Addams" with two "d"s. From Charles Addams, who drew the original cartoons -- printed in the New Yorker, among other places.

You have discovered something I learned a while back. The little details of the world before about 1990 are rarely captured on the internet unless they already had known historical value. Even early internet postings and websites are vanishing. I had a list of misc. websites I created in 1992 that have all vanished. Google's book initiative was fixing some of that pre-1990 drop-off, but that's been killed by the courts.

PS. I just noticed my email reader stripped off the OT from the subject line. I had always wondered whether people were doing that deliberately to flaunt the OT "convention" and know I now it's something newsreaders must do to "help us." The worst case of that was a version of CC:mail our company used that somehow had "reply all" set as default and that meant "reply to whole company." That was great fun until they fixed it - after a pic of the Prez's secretary in a bikini went companywide.

According to my Google search - the El Encanto in SB is closed for renovations. No mention of a Cafe Madrid. Perhaps it closed soon after you stayed there.

No, but I spent six months working in Goleta and the Santa Barbara area has to have more good restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the US.
