REMEMBER THE PINK PIG RESTAURANT IN SHERMAN OAKS

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY  2011

Otto Nasser's Pink Pig Restaurant was located at 4954 Van Nuys Boulevard in Sherman Oaks. It advertised itself as "One of the Valley's nicest restaurants, specializing in age steaks, prime ribs of beef, Italian spaghetti and home made pastries."

This is AWESOME! My dad took the whole fam-damily to Otto's once a week when we lived in Van Nuys. Eventually, we were going to Bob's Big Boy. What a trip to see this post card!!!!!!

Yes, I remember The Pink Pig well! Mom and I used to go there in the 1960's, in two different locations about a block from each other, either on the property shown in this post card, or close by. We were a little later than this incarnation, which I'm guessing is the late forties and early fifties. I treasure my childhood memories of the Old Valley and dining at The Pink Pig. I adored the shish kebob. Thank you!
