The Return of Clifton's
It took many years to finish the much anticipated restoration/renovation of Clifton's Cafeteria in downtown LA, but I can assure you that it was worth the wait!
The vintage terrazzo tiles still greet you at the front entrance:
The inside is even more spectacular than before.
Cleaned and polished, it still has that kitschy retro vibe but now boasts a very hip and happening feel.
You'll still find many of the much beloved hidden delights throughout the space:
The good ol' taxidermied animals:
But they now coexist with some very happening spaces that just scream come back at night!
Even the bathrooms look great!
Of course most important of all is the food. I give it a rousing 2 thumbs up! The meatloaf was out of this world, and so was the very flavorful mac and cheese.
Naturally, I had to go with a shooter of jello for dessert. It only seemed fitting.
