Occidental Grill & Seafood

1952: Price Family are in as new owners 

Where Statemen Dine

In 1952 Fred Buchholz sold the Occidental to the Price family – a New York family with extensive restaurant experience. The new owners keep most of the original furnishings that make the restaurant the showplace Buchholz created. This includes a monstrous black stove in the lower dining room, the first electric stove in Washington.
