Vendome Café, 6666 Sunset Boulevard, block from the Hollywood Reporter offices, opened May 1933. This was the first restaurant opened by Hollywood Reporter’s Billy Wilkerson who originally planned it as a gourmet paradise and specialty store but soon after the opening, Wilkerson made it a luncheon place and it soon became the most important place to lunch in town. Closed late 1938, and reopened as Ruby Foo’s.
