depending who you want to believe....Livio created this dish with what he happened to have on hand in the kitchen, no reason everyone shouldn't do the same ;)

I remember as a kid (1940's 50's) a great restaurant in Coronado, THE LA AVIENIDA claimed a lineage to the original recipe for "Ceaser's Salad", which they did claim came from TJ. I still love that salad as the absolute best. I can't believe I am agreeing with "the Goat", but I love anchovies in my Ceaser's also!!! When given the choice, I ALWAYS choose "Ceaser's Salad".

I'm in the camp of the anchovie version....but fyi, one of the key ingredients of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce is anchovies so balancing the addition of each ( anch. and Worcestershire) is the art of a good dressing, imo.

Hook, They're still serving the sherry, pate & toast wedges before meals. Nice touch.
Forgot about the parimisium cheese, a must also. Muy rico!

Is Dizz's still going? Great to hear! That's where I learned about straight vermouth with a twist of lemon peel as a great aperitif.

Caesars in TJ also serves the "Ensalada Victors"
Old old timers remember this from the old now gone Victor's Restaurant.

Here are some interesting articles on it. Nice that Caesars pays homage to it still. They also make it table style.
