Anaheim White House
Everyone has heard of Washington DC's White House, but it has a sister on the West Coast—Anaheim White House—that's similarly popular with presidents. Jimmy Carter has enjoyed the California restaurant's Italian food and steaks, as has Danny De Vito. (Even Madonna has feasted on their catering.)
Below, some highlights of the A-list restaurant:
- Historic location: A mansion originally built in 1909, the structure has undergone renovations since then, but certain details, like the main dining room's brick fireplace, remain intact after more than a century.
- Dining rooms: 12 in total, named after White House icons like Ronald Reagan and the West Wing. Some are bedecked in murals worthy of the Sistine Chapel; all of them can be reserved for private dinners.
- Cuisine: An assortment of Italian dishes, like linguine with clams, along with braised beef with a porcini mushroom sauce and some unconventional creations. The most unconventional of all? The New York Times-endorsed steamed salmon with white chocolate mashed potatoes.
- Chef Bruno Serato emigrated here with $200 from Verona, Italy. When he got here, he worked his way up from lowly server to innovative chef.
- Charity work: Serato makes a point of feeding homeless children, given his own humble beginnings, and he's won awards for his commitment to the cause. More importantly, he's fed one million children with his efforts through his Caterina's Club foundation.
