  • Louis' Restaurant
    Louis’ Restaurant: A User’s Guide Waterfront, Cliff-Top Dining | 80 Years of History | Organic, Local, Fair-Trade Ingredients | Diner Menu Sample Menu: Breakfast: coffee with a cheddar-filled, chili-stuffed omelet Lunch: Shrimp Louis salad Dinner: 8-ounce new york steak sandwich Beer: Anchor Steam Dessert: locally baked pie served à la mode The Setting: Louis' is nestled in the craggy, fog-blanketed cliffs of the Pacific Ocean. Massive windows not only showcase this stunning, panoramic landscape—with a red-streaked sunset if you time your visit right—but also indigenous and 19th-century ruins. This view, especially if taken in through the glass-walled corner booth, makes visitors feel like they're savoring their tuna melt in a fairy tale. The Ingredients Eggs: cage-free, and sourced from within 100 miles Produce: certified organic, and sourced from within 200 miles Meat: natural, hormone-free, antibiotic-free, vegetarian-fed, humanely-raised Bread: sourced from within 25 miles Desserts: sourced from within 25 miles Coffee: certified organic and certified fair trade Green Stuff: Louis’ prides itself on being an eco-friendly establishment, from its 55% recycled tiled floors to its compostable takeout containers, and most everything in between. History Valentine's Day, 1937: Married Greek immigrants Louis and Helen Hontalas open shop. In addition to a full menu of dine-in options, they sell peanuts and popcorn from wagons outside. 1939: Their son Constantine, third after John and Jim, is welcomed as the newest Hontalas. 1947: 27-year-old Rachel "Rosie" Lelchuk, wearing her signature flower in her hair, begins her 55-year career as a Louis' Restaurant server. 1973: The National Park Service acquires the land Louis' sits on, making the restaurant an official NPS concessioner. 1975: Jim, now the owner, dramatically renovates the building. 1988: The NPS opts to shutter Louis' Restaurant—but thousands upon thousands of customer-written postcards convince officials not to go through with it. 1997: Jim retires, and his sons Bill and Tom step in. 2002: Rosie retires at the age of 82. 2010: Another remodel gives the place a whole new look, and a contract with the NPS keeps the Hontalas family in charge for at least another 10 years.

  • The Grubstake
    The Grubstake Late-night breakfast takes a historic turn at The Grubstake, especially for diners sitting at the counter. This is part of the historic rail car diner, which was originally on the Key Line, transporting people from Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco. The rail car retired from transportation in 1927, when it was converted into diner. It’s been serving up American classics ever since. Over the years, The Grubstake expanded, adding a new kitchen and dining room. When new owners took over more than two decades ago, they expanded the menu to include Portuguese wine, beer, and food. Guy Fieri even stopped in for some Portuguese-style bacalhau à gomes de sàin (codfish with potatoes, onion, and hard-boiled eggs) on an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. But The Grubstake still stays true to its diner traditions, with made-to-order burgers, breakfasts, and hearty entrees served from 5 p.m. until the wee hours of 4 a.m. every day. Try This: Caldo Verde Soup Since 1995, The Grubstake has complemented American breakfasts and burgers with its “Portuguese Corner” menu, available daily. Some of the continental Portuguese dishes include garlic prawns, boiled codfish with potatoes and vegetables, and pork chops seasoned with white wine, garlic, and spices. But the star of the show is the caldo verde, a hearty soup made with kale, potatoes, and linguiça—a salty Portuguese pork sausage seasoned with garlic and paprika. 7x7 named caldo verde soup to its list of 100 Things to Try Before You Die, though they specified that it should be a “3 a.m. bowl.” This savory, authentic dish—served up in a rustic terra cotta bowl—satisfies appetites whatever the hour.

  • Mel's Drive-in- Los Angeles and San Francisco
    In 1947, owners Mel Weiss and Harold Dobbs assembled a staff of 14 carhops to serve passing motorists at the first Mel's Drive-In. For the next two decades, customers partial to automobile dining flocked to the chain’s 11 California locations, eager to wash down grass-fed half-pound burgers with thick milk shakes. As fast-food outlets outpaced the drive-in's once-speedy service, its popularity declined, and it was eventually scheduled for demolition. The building got a temporary reprieve, however, when filmmaker George Lucas decided to use the drive-in's original location on Lombard Street as the colorful backdrop for his film American Graffiti. As bulldozers destroyed the last remnants of the historic drive-in, American Graffiti opened in theaters. A decade later, though, Mel's son Steven reopened Mel's Drive-In in an attempt to carry on his father's dream. Steven restored the drive-in's multiple locations to mirror their original motif by stocking each with midcentury must-haves such as illuminated marquees, jukeboxes, and Elvis-themed WiFi passwords. The drive-in’s menu, meanwhile, balances period-appropriate fare, such as hot dogs and burgers, with healthy options, such as the Haven’s Famous vegetarian sandwich, two slices of nine-grain bread topped with avocado, sprouts, and tomatoes.
