Maurice's Snack "n" Chat

There was a time when Maurice's (an 89 year-old lady) Snack "n" Chat was about as hot a restaurant destination as there was in L.A. Madam Prince had home cooked for some really upscale Hollywood personages, some of whom helped to finance the restaurant serving her unexcelled southern soul food. Other personages, such as these, helped to popularize Maurice's, but this web site description barely scratches the surface of the appeal Maurice's food had during her occupancy of the building she built and the restaurant she operated, shown in the photo.
Eventually, something happened to diminish Maurice's cooking and stature and about four years ago her restaurant went grimly down and out of business.

But now Maurice's Snack "n" Chat is back, but not really. I just found Maurice again on Pico, a few blocks east of her previous location, with a menu as diminished as her surroundings.




But, hey! Maurice is alive and cooking at 89. And most of us are not what we used to be. Maurice had her great days, and I guess these are still good.
