The Velvet Turtle

Postby Sharlsie » Fri Jun 28, 2013 9:35 am

I remember going to the Velvet Turtle once in high school (1974) for dinner before my Christmas Formal. It was a very nice restaurant but the other couple we were with, the girl was super picky and couldn't find anything she wanted to eat. My boyfriend wanted to smack the crap out of her. ***sigh*** I miss those times.

I would have wanted to smack her too. I loved the Velvet Turtle. They had like twenty salad dressings, I loved the Green Godess. They would bring a chilled salad fork. I never could understand why they closed. There was another Velvet Turtle in Burlingame. My husband and I ate there on our way to The Stones Concert in 1989. It closed soon after.
