Did I stumble onto one of Frank’s favorite restaurants? I was just cruising Ventura Blvd. in Encino looking for a place to eat (sometimes it’s Ventura in Sherman Oaks). Emilio’s caught my eye and I was really happy to see this picture of Frank inside. He’s there with great company. That’s Sammy Davis Jr., Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon on the bottom row; Joan Collins and Walter somebody on the top. Matthau perhaps?

Lunch for two, tip and valet, $125.00. The food was out of this world! The mousse was like whipped ice cream; really chocolaty. The wine was just acceptable. I love a good German white Riesling, but no one in the valley ever seems to carry one! Finally, the $7.80 item is for two side orders of meatballs to accompany the spaghetti, served with the veal.

Interesting...looks like a Hirschfeld-type drawing. Very nice that he's up there with ultra-"Hollywood" folks.

Nice. I've been to Toronto, ON, and I just had to go to the legislature building there, just 'cause I knew it was where they shot the Rush's Moving Pictures cover image. I would wine and dine in a restaurant that has Zappa's portrait on the wall, should I we ever go to Enccino...

Who are the other characters? Wasn't Sammy Davis Jr on the Church of Satan at some point?

All of those sketches look to be water damaged & McMahon's is crooked. Does that place have leaky walls? :smurf:

I don't like them at all.
That aside, It looks like the Zappa sketch is based on that early-ish photo of him stretching his shirt down revealing his chest.
