Pacific Dining Car

I was invited out to a very nice dinner at the Pacific Dining Car on Whilshire (another location downtown) and was intrigued by the decor. Very formal and heavy but with beautiful rich fabrics. I wouldn't call it California, but then again maybe I would. Perhaps it's a Los Angeles older than I can remember. The decor is so thorough that I had the sensation that I could be anywhere, but certainly not on Wilshire.

I was exploring their website and found that they started in 1921 in a train car right when Los Angeles was beginning to boom. If you're interested in Los Angeles history (like I am) you can find a nice summary of the development of Los Angeles on their website.
