International Herald Tribune (31/Dec/1994) - Chasen's




Chasen's, the Hollywood restaurant that fed Jimmy Cagney, Alfred Hitchcock, Humphrey Bogart and Ronald Reagan, will serve its last meal next spring. The 58-year-old eatery will close on April 1, and in its place will rise a shopping center. Chasen's was founded on Dec. 13, 1936, after Harold Ross, editor of The New Yorker, urged his comedian friend Dave Chasen to get out of show business and pursue his true talent — cooking. Chasen's wife, Maude, began running the restaurant after her husband died in 1973.
