Two stars for Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga

July 22, 2010 | 11:11 am


The Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga Canyon has been many things through the years -- the purported summer retreat of evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson in the 1930s, later a church (or two), a garage, a gas station and auto junkyard before this neglected property became a restaurant. Until recently, though, it was more a curiosity than a destination for anybody who cared about eating.

Now it has a serious chef and some serious food.

Read this week's review, and find out why the Inn gets two stars.
