There was another restaurant called "Arthur's" at Ghirardelli Square. Always wondered if the place on 19th & Lincoln was part of the same chain. Or trying to steal its thunder.

I was working at Aquatic Park when the Senor Pico's restaurant at Ghirardelli was converted to a trendy spot called "Arthur's" in the late 1970s. Never went there but from the park but I could see lots of ferns and faux Tiffany glass.

(For the uninitiated, the name was based on a legendary incident when a journalist asked Ringo Starr what he called his haircut and Ringo replied: "Arthur.")
