RICHLOR'S, Beverly Hills CA



Reknowned for its "planked Hamburger Steaks" says the back, as well as its unique "Seafood Bar." Which could mean a buffet of exotic creatures from the briny deep, or a room where the shrimp is served floating in gin.

The building on the spot today has no relation to the Richlor, and seems older. I don't know. The web says it was an Ed Debevic for a while, but closed in 2003. Perhaps it was torn down. But something still remains: it was originally built by the fellow who founded Lawry's Steakhouse - and you can still find their famous seasoned salt in stores around the country.
