If you like the Clifton's postcards, there are at least 40 or more out there, so happy hunting!
Here is a souvenir photo folder from the Pacific Seas and Brookdale I got a little while back.
No photo inside, but you can see the shots of both locations.
Back of the folder.
Now this is really amazing.
Obviously before food stamps.

Anyone heard any updates/timing on the "rebirth" of Clifton's Pacific Seas lately?

It's the Clifton's Brookdale (only) location that is undergoing refurbishment.
It's supposed to reopen later this year.
Interesting article about the owner of Clifton's Cafeteria and his mistress.

Thanks, TikiLongBeach. "The Pacific Seas, a Polynesian themed Tiki bar will open in honor of the original Clifton's Pacific Seas that originally stood on Olive Street." Sounds like a cool addition to the place they are refurbing. Don't know why I was thinking they were re-opening a whole new, separate restaurant.
I remember reading that article the other week. Somebody on here (maybe you?) had posted it. Pretty interesting.

The info I have (from the folks working on it) is
there will be a new cafeteria, Tiki Bar, shops & upscale restaurant
as part of the renovation, the funding of the project took a while to get in place
so actual work on the project just started a few months ago & it will take a year or more to finish.

A year or more?!? Yikes!!!
Actually, the most unsettling think about this new info is the word "upscale"... that sounds diametrically opposed to the entire spirit of Clifton's, and their humanitarian history of lending a helping hand to those in need.
I guess we'll have to wait and see!
