Ok, here's a restaurant question; years before food courts, does anyone remember the name of the sit down restaurant inside Fashion Fair?

I was just trying to remember the name of the restaurant "Outpost" that had my favorite of all time meal "Lobster Newberg". It was the best and I have yet to see it on any other restaurant menu. It was my special place to take a special friend in the late 60's and early 70's. When did it go out of business? I've lived out of Fresno for about 40 years.

Anyone remember Sir Lane's Burgers on Divisadero and Van Ness? Absolute best burgers - with sauteed onions - I've ever had. They closed in the mid 1980s then reopened on West and Shaw for a short time. I don't think they lasted at that location for more than a year. Still the best burgers ANYWHERE!

One of my favorite restaurants was downtown called, "Grandma's Pantry" homemade everything! All food was cooked and baked in house, from meats to bake goods! The best German Chocolate cake ever! Still think of wonderful lunches share with my Momma at this venue! Memories!

My Dad worked at the Shangri-La sometime in the 60 -70's as a cook. His last name was Wong as well. Still remember the generosity of the boss during Christmas time. What great presents we received.
