Took a day trip to Capistrano, and was bewitched by the sheer beauty and gezellig-ness of the place. Located adjacent (and connected) to the Amtrak station building, it's a restaurant patched together from several rooms in the old Santa Fe Station building, and Pullman sleeper cars (still parked on their original track) and converted into a gorgeous dining room filled with wood, brass, and thick velvet curtains. The original sleeper compartments remain collapsed into the roof of the train car.
No time to eat, but we'll certainly head back. Your responses will determine if we go back just for cocktails, or for steak.
What do you think of this place, fellow 'hounds?
