Humuhumu’s description:
This short-lived location of the Don the Beachcomber restaurant chain opened in a Sheraton Hotel in the mid 1970s and lasted for a few years before closing. Legendary bartender Tony Ramos, who had worked at the flagship Hollywood Don the Beachcomber, worked here when it opened.

After Don the Beachcomber closed, the spot housed an El Torito restaurant, and in 2006 the space is now a Mediterranean restaurant called Alfiere.
