Chart House Restaurant [gone]
Rancho Mirage, CA
This Chart House Restaurant was designed by Kendrick Bangs Kellogg and built in 1978. This building was considered "organic" because of its low profile and the way it surrounded the hillside. Rock from the site was incorporated into the exterior and interior walls. The restaurant was home to Haleiwa Joe's Seafood Grill when these photos were taken in 2008. It later went by the name of GG's Island. In 2012, the building was severely damaged in a fire. It was demolished in 2013. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

La Rosita Drive Inn (now Starbucks)
Redlands, CA

2015:

2016:
The La Rosita Drive Inn was built in 1960 as a Baker's Drive-in. This building also appears to have been inspired by the original McDonald's design. In 1965, it became Barry's Better Burgers. It opened as La Rosita in 1979 and then closed in 2014. In 2016, the building was demolished and replaced with a similar one for Starbucks. The original sign is underneath the new Starbucks panels.

Tony's On the Pier
Redondo Beach, CA
Tony's On the Pier opened in 1952 in a small shack. In 1961, the current restaurant was built. The upper octagonal structure was built in 1963 as the Top o' Tony's Bar. The restaurant became known as Old Tony's when they opened another location. That location, Tony's Fish Market, has since closed. The pole sign with the plastic balls is probably from the 1960s. The panel sign is probably modern or else it's been repainted and reworked. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
