Here's a fairly recent Google Earth photo of the corner of Narragansett and Irving with the current A's Restaurant. The Chinese restaurant you mentioned, HOLTANEK, was "Ho Ho Chop Suey" which is gone and another Asian restaurant has taken its place.

My question now is, does anyone remember what the name of the restaurant on the corner of Belmont and Narragansett was before it was Cafe Tacuba? :-)
