Come visit La Bocana

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.

Sorry to hear that. Been to La Fonda many times over the years, I remember him well.

He was one of a kind. I and my whole family and many friends have 45 years of fond memories and great times in both his joints. We had an early dinner there 4 weeks ago (prime rib carved table side out of a vintage cart) and got to chat with Mr. D and Sara for a bit. He was still smiling and happy that we said hello.

End of an era.

Fond memories haven't been there in 25yrs. I wonder if things changed after being bought out in 2002

The infamous banana daiquiris, the fresh baked chips, smoked marlin dip and a whole fired fish. Got a wheelbarrow to the car:bounce::biggrin::barf: .

So sad. Was just there on Thursday for lunch and nobody mentioned a thing. He was always a presence and at times a bit rough around the edges, but whenever he would stop by our table and we would share with him what we were celebrating, he would share a shot of tequila with us. He will certainly be missed.
