Rediscovering Los Angeles — El Capricho de los Dorados

Dec. 2, 1935, Rediscovering Los Angeles

Dec. 2, 1935: In this installment of Rediscovering Los Angeles, Times artist Charles Owens and columnist Timothy Turner visit El Capricho de los Dorados, a tiny Mexican restaurant on Aliso “below Alameda Street.”

Turner says: “These little places are generally run by a family, a man and his wife with daughters serving the table. A widow with a lot of daughters can do very well (sometimes better, they say) than with a man around.”

He also mentions the restaurant in his book “Turn Off the Sunshine.”
