With a galaxy of society names present, famed Perino's Restaurant on Wilshire Blvd. opened its doors on February 14, 1955, for the first time since last Sept. 10 when a blaze gutted it. With proprietor Alexander Perino, left, are his wife, Violetta, and Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Longinotti, interior decorator. The restaurant's capacity has been enlarged to seat 360, and in addition two private dining rooms have been added. Architect: Paul Williams.
