Old Malibu Eateries

A Facebook discussion on Gladstone's 4 Fish in Pacific Palisades jogged a memory of the old Sea Lion Restaurant in Malibu today.

I do remember the Sea Lion off of Pacific Coast Highway when it had a tank of sea lions. This ended when the restaurant burned down in 1964 and was re-opened without the sea lion tank. The restaurant kept its name, though.

I found a website of old Malibu eateries that brought back even more memories. According to it, the Sea Lion is still there, except it is now known as Duke's Malibu Restaurant.

The website starts with:
The golden era of roadside attractions is long gone, but there was a time when Cape Cod cottages and Tiki kitsch were a key part of Malibu’s mojo.  
The restaurants and hotels are all gone, or remodeled past recognizing, but ephemera like postcards, matchboxes and menus preserve a record of Malibu’s gloriously goofy past, and in many cases, TV and films shot on location offer a glimpse of vanished local landmarks.
