Great post Sabu! I love the artists rendition of the restaurant. It's hard to believe it ever looked that cool!
Here's another picture of the menu that uses the tiki from the matchbook in the margin (was this their "signature" tiki?):
Now chaired by Tallichet's son John, the Anaheim-based company operates 25 restaurants in nine states, including the Odyssey in Granada Hills and the Castaway in Burbank. The company also built Ports O'Call Village in San Pedro."
For sure and they were most likely the owners of the Port's O' Call restaurant at some point too. The restaurant was there before the village was built around it. Here's a close up of a menu from Port's O' Call in 'Pedro that invites guests to other restaurants in the area, including "Pieces of Eight" which looks like it may have been a nautical themed restaurant from its menu. I got more info about Port's O' Call (in 'Pedro) coming up soon.
