I am going to be in SoCal for a week starting Jan 24, 2010. I was planning on checking out the Cicada Club (a Sunday night only restaurant with a 1940s theme link) but they are closed for a private party during that Sunday.
So, I am looking for an alternative. Ruby's Diner sounds great... I have been to Musso & Frank, The Pig and Whistle and Mels... and we have a Johnny Rocket in our local mall.
Any other places anyone can recommend (for casual or fine dining anywhere in Southern California) that has an old-timey theme?
The older the better.
