Trivia Question for February 18, 2016 – Santa Monica Pier

In March of 1983 I witnessed the destruction of the Santa Monica Pier caused by El Nino.  One third of the pier was destroyed and a famous restaurant was lost forever.

What was the name of that famous restaurant located on the Santa Monica Pier?

The storms destroyed more than a third of the pier, along with stores, bars, cars, and a large crane brought in to begin repairs Three interesting buildings owned by the city were abandoned and destroyed, including the Sinbad’s Restaurant that featured a large whale’s tail in the facade.
