We've seen Eatons Restaurants and some of their menus before, but I think this location is new to NLA. This is Julius Shulman's "Job 610: Douglas Honnold, Eatons Restaurant (Los Angeles, Calif.), 1949", and the summary says "12010 Ventura Boulevard, Studio City (Los Angeles, Calif.), now demolished." The photographs have index numbers of 9 and 12, so I'm guessing that Mr Shulman took more shots than the two available here. Check out the illuminated chicken ...

... and the illuminated pig.

As the description says, the restaurant has gone, and I haven't even found any wider shots or postcards of it. Here's an advert from the June 19, 1952 edition of The Van Nuys News which confirms the address.

This may be the interior of the restaurant above, but even the source is unsure. This is "Job 697: Eatons Restaurant, seating,1950" and the summary says "For Schafer Brothers. Architect is probably Douglas Honnold, probably located in Studio City."
