Recent Celebrity Sightings at Melvyn's Restaurant
Diahann Carroll strolled into Melvyn's Restaurant about 9:30 pm. She loved the place. She spends two hours listening to Michael Healey in the lounge and takes a picture with him.
The next day she calls and asks if we could do her a big favor. She is appearing at the Annenberg Theater and does not finish until 11:30, and even though we close the restaurant at 11, is there any way we can seat her and her friends at 11:30?
Needless to say, Melvyn's to the rescue, and Diahann with her party of six had a fabulous evening, didn't leave until 1:30 am, and could not stop thanking the staff.
She said, "Melvyn's makes me feel like, "Old Blue Eyes" is here with us, and I just love it!"
When Rita Coolidge was in town performing at the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies, she stopped by and sang a few songs in the lounge.
