old school green goddess dressing - anywhere?

I've been making my own at home and am wondering if anyone has had any around town. With the revival of a lot of old school drinks and dishes, I'm curious. It is SO GOOD!

  1. The Melting Pot has them as a dip for the fondue, not as a dressing for salads...but perhaps they'll provide you w/a larger portion if you ask....

    1. i'm pretty sure it's on the menu at Lucques and Tavern. you could always call both places & ask.

      8474 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90069

      11648 San Vicente Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90049

      1. Tavern sells it in their Larder. Animal has it on the menu.

          Does Animal always keep Green Goddess on the menu, or does it come and go as their menu changes from day to day?

        2. We had it at The Buggy Whip by the airport. My mom said it was exactly the same as when she used to eat it there 40 years ago...

          1. Wasn't Green Goddess dressing Tracton's 'claim to fame'? I thought it originated with them. Another sorely missed eatery (sigh).

              Tracton's still exists just a bit south of us down in Solana Beach.

                That's got to be the same one. I just didn't remember the name "Red", it was simply called Tracton's. Thanks, Servorg.
