I remember it. Used to go there as a kid.
Can't remember the name...but know of someone who might.
Stay tuned.!

"Marjorie"
The Hot Dog Show, used to be at Ventura Bl. and Coldwater Canyon.
Bit of Scotland on Westwood Bl. for incredible fried chicken.
Any others you miss?
Ports in West Hollywood... great old Hollywood ambience and the first time
I
ever tasted caviar atop a baked potato.
The Feedbag on Wilshire in WLA... great cheap food for UCLA students.
A place whose name escapes me in Santa Monica Canyon just off PCH where
you
could eat dinner and hear Gilbert and Sullivan songs.
La Mer, small and wonderfully romantic, on the beach at PCH and Topanga.
The Fireside Inn, great red leather watering hole on Ventura.
McGoo's on Hollywod Boulevard, for raucous college parties every night.
A steak retaurant just down the boulevard, high ceilings, brightly lit,
cheap
tough good meat. Name?
Also on Hollywood, Aldo's, a bar and restaurant with little covered wagons
at
each booth.
And a funny little place on Van Nuys Boulevard near Victory in the
Fifties,
where they only served hamburgers which were delivered to you by a little
model train that ran around the U shaped loop of the counter and then back
into the kitchen. Anyone remember what it was called?

It was called, "The Choo Choo" Does anybody remember "Fire Brigade" in Encino? It was on Ventura and Havenhurst in the early to mid 70's There was a old fashion fire engine in the front. They had the best root beer floats!

The Hot Dog Show was in Toluca Lake and was among, if not the first, business located there.

I see that the abandoned Velvet Turtle Building
in China Town has finally been demolished.

I often think that the Velvet Turtle chain died when US
restaurants become more than steak houses.
