Clifton’s Cafeteria—it might just be the most famous restaurant in the history of L.A. Nah, not because of the movie stars who showed up (oh, yeah, there were plenty), but because real people ate there. Millions of ’em since 1931.   Nobody forgot that if a hungry person couldn’t pay, that was OK. The Golden Rule. That’s what the place was all about. So everybody came. Clifford Clinton owned Clifton’s—all of ’em—everything he did was about doin’ unto others.  Nobody goin’ hungry on his watch. And when he saw corruption in his City of Angels, he went after it. He led a campaign to recall the Mayor. He cleaned up the town. His story is as good as it gets—straight outta Raymond Chandler, only real—Clifford Clinton’s never published story, and more stuff about L.A. you just won’t believe. And the pictures. So many. They’re like everything you remember about Clifton’s— delicious. Like green JellO--with whipped cream.  The author, Dr. Edmond J. Clinton III is the grandson of Clifford Clinton, the founder of Clifton's Cafeteria, arguably the most famous restaurant in Los Angeles.  (Angel City Press)
