Old lunches

This link will take you to a list of the “oldest surviving Los Angeles restaurants.” This being Los Angeles, “old” is a relative term (many of the restaurants listed are from the 1960s through 1980s).

At first, I was surprised to see that I’ve eaten at 45 of these restaurants, many of them more than once. Then when I realized there are 250 restaurants on the list, I decided that one out of five isn’t so large a number. More surprising is that I have other friends who say they’ve dined in about 45 of these — but I’ve never run into them at any of these places.

This list also reminds me that I should revisit some of these places. (Especially when guests from out of town like my friend Paul can pick up the check.)

    Only if we go to Tijuana and get the five tacos for $1.25.
