The Cockatoo restaurant in west los angeles @ 1963

Does Anyone remember this restaurant except me??? It was a semi-fancy steakhouse on the northwest corner of Pico and Sepulveda. I was there is 1963, I remember it vividly, but everyone thinks I'm nuts!

    Sorry - - the Cockatoo Restaurant was located at Imperial Highway and Hawthorne Boulevard in Hawthorne. You must be thinking of Scotch and Sirloin.

        No, not the one in Hawthorn. I do believe that it did become the Scotch and Sirloin though, it did change names a few times. But thanks anyway.

          there was also a Flakey Jake's on that corner, but probably after the time you were referring to.

          Drank mostly, and ate infrequently, at the Scotch and Sirloin in the early/mid 70's after moving to Mar Vista in '73.
