You gotta be kidding. Only a few weeks ago I was in Los Angeles for just 1 day (Monday, March 3rd) and made it a special point to walk from the Sheraton Downtown to Trader Vic's for lunch. While there wasn't a soul in the restaurant portion, there were quite a few folks enjoying themselves in the bar area. I sat at the bar and ordered drinks along with lunch, and service and food was excellent. The manager even came by to personally make sure I was satisfied.
Looks like it was my one and only visit.
My wife says I'm jinxed, and that every place I like seems to go out of business. I'm beginning to think she might be right. I've attended too many "favorite" funerals of late.
And while I wouldn't call this Trader Vic's a real favorite after just one visit, I did like the place and was looking forward to going back some day.
I do have to admit that every time I visit the Atlanta Trader Vic's (about once a year), I leave the place wondering if it will still be there next year. I love that Trader Vic's and wish I lived close enough to where I could visit it more often.
Don't be putting the jinx on Lei Low now!
