So much great information, thanks so much!
My mom confirms that what she remembered as "House of India" was actually "India House", which I found in that great source of old SF photographs that Gordon Wing linked to:
My mom and her friends have been reminiscing about places they used to go in the 60's, so she sent me a list and asked me to find out a bit about whether or not they are still around and what may have happened to them. Many are still around (Tadich, House of Prime Rib), a few more are fondly remembered (The Hippo), but there are a few names I was not able to find anything about.
Does anyone know what happened to these? (spelling may not be quite right)
