Clifton's Cafteria Closing for Remodeling Mon, 09/19/11 5:18 AM (permalink)
 

Landmark downtown L.A. cafeteria to close for remodel


from L.A. Times - Business

The kitschy, forest-themed Clifton's Brookdale cafeteria will get a new kitchen and several other upgrades, says developer Andrew Meieran, who also founded the Edison nightclub.

Clifton's Brookdale cafeteria, a downtown Los Angeles landmark since the 1930s, will close for three to six months during a $3-million rehabilitation by the new owner.

    Michael, that's Clifton's.  You have it as Clinton's in your title.

      You are correct.  You were very tactful in your correction.  Maybe Hillary Clifton should give you a job in the diplomatic corps.

        Someone should give me a job.
         
        I'm not always tactful, but I was thinking...
         
        Maybe Bill ate there.

          Well, at least that administration would be giving a job to someone.

            A closure update received from Clifton's via email today, 2/2/2012:
             
            "Mr. ______, our cafeteria and bakery are currently closed for remodeling, we should reopen in about 6-9 months.  We are only open on the second Thursday of each month for Artwalk, we have an art gallery and a bar, but no food."

              Not having been to Los Angeles since 2004, I am long overdue for a visit.  But, Clifton's is at the top of the list of restaurants I want to visit, so it looks like I will be waiting until they reopen.  How many times has this place closed and reopened now?

                In 1956 my mother and grandmothers took me on a cross-country train trip to visit Disneyland and the Grand Canyon.  Clifton's Pacific Seas was "on their list".  WOW!
