THE GOOD WIFE RESTAURANT - ONCE ENCINO MEETING PLACE

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY   2011

If you read this blog regularly, you know that The Museum's Vice President, Gary Fredburg, is always on the lookout for treasures big or small to add to your Museum's archives. This week Gary added 25 vintage matchbook covers to our collection. Most of the covers represent Valley restaurants from Chatsworth to Burbank. Sadly most of the eateries are long gone, only memories to longtime Valley residents.
Do you remember, or have you ever heard of The Good Wife Restaurant in Encino"

I did a small search on Google to find out details about The Good Wife, but alas all that I have is the information on the cover, and inside of this matchbook cover.  Gift from Gary Fredburg 2011 (click on image to enlarge)

The De la Adobe is also at Balboa and Ventura. There was a Poppy Star Restaurant across the boulevard from the adobe under which was found the foundation of the Encino stagecoach stop. What other restaurants were along Ventura in Encino?

I remember Dupar's, corner of Petit and Venture and the Ram's Horn and the Queen's Arms. There was also a Polynesian restaurant on Gloria & Ventura but we can't remember the name of it.
