Scandia Restaurant

A while back I had promised some posts under the heading "Vintage L.A. Crap" (see previous post here). But then, all hell broke loose, and I'm only now getting to it.

What you see here is a postcard from Scandia Restaurant, which back in the day was quite the place to be seen in Los Angeles. Located on Sunset Blvd., the restaurant was a regular hangout for actors - once, my mom and dad spotted Harry Morgan and Loretta Swit having lunch, shortly after the end of M*A*S*H*'s run.

We went there on our L.A. summer vacation in 1977, and I remember it being very good. I can even remember what I had - beef stew. The other thing I remember is that our waiter was probably pushing 80.
