40th Birthday?

In honor of a friend's entry into his fifth decade ;) , I'm looking for restaurants in the LA area that opened in 1973.
High-end to Low-end.
I've seen lists here of the oldest eateries in LA but this is just for that specific year... Any thoughts/suggestions?

  1. The Rainbow Bar & Grill opened in 1972...that's as close as I can come. Maybe someone else will nail it on the nose?

    1. re: Servorg

      The Rainbow would also be a fun venue for a 40th as opposed to just finding a place that opened in 73.

    2. According to this website (which is pretty cool by the way),, MIguel's in Corona opened in 1973.

      And according to Miguel's website, that Corona location is still (um) going strong.

      Happy Birthday!
