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

Space is limited, and reservations are recommended.  Call (714) 525-5682.

I'd also be interested in hearing the history behind this claim. It seems strange that Burton and Taylor knew that Orange County existed, even as a getaway from the media and all those dahling friends.

As a special gift to anyone who can enlighten us, here's a much-better picture of Elizabeth Taylor (from Suddenly, Last Summer):


My word, what the hell were they doing in Orange County? Was Dan Tana's closed or something?

Did Orange County even exist in the mid-'70s? Did Darryl F. Zanuck have a studio lot in what is now Stanton??

Where is OC's published historian, Gustavo Arellano, to solve this mystery??? Or where are his *interns* to solve this mystery? LOL


That's not true—the Hollywood set loved OC as early as the 1910s, when Mary Pickford got marred at Mission San Juan Capistrano...
