Did you know that Richard Burton proposed to Elizabeth Taylor (for the second time) in a secluded booth at The Cellar
in Fullerton? Neither did I. But he did, and the restaurant, an OC fixture since 1970, has announced it will offer a prix-fixe dinner of her favorite foods from April 1 to 3 in her honor. All profits of the $50-per-person, four-course meal will benefit the actresses' favorite cause, American Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR).
The menu after the jump.
Classic escargot with shallots, white wine, mushrooms, butter and pastis
Classic caesar salad with gourmet anchovies and herbed croutons
Filet steak Oscar with Hollandaise resting on potato purée and fresh asparagus
Chocolate mousse with fresh berries
