Bullitt - Enrico's Restaurant
Bullitt takes a cab to meet a police informant at Enrico's Restaurant, a fixture at 504 Broadway Street since 1959.
Then ... The cab drives north up Kearny and drops Bullitt off at Broadway. The domed flat-iron building on Columbus facing us at the end of this block is the 1907 Sentinel Building, aka the Columbus Tower.
Then ... The cab drops him off in front of Swiss Louis, an even longer-lived Broadway restaurant, here from 1936 until moving in 1978 to its current Pier 39 location.
Then ... Bullitt crosses Broadway to Enrico's, so familiar to any San Franciscan.
... in 2004, a small remodel on the corner otherwise it's still very similar. Kearny Street's steepest block runs uphill on the right, so steep in fact that the sidewalk is a staircase - to see just how steep it is check out this location from 'Dark Passage', filmed facing down that same block.
... and Now, Sadly, the era of Enricos came to an end in November 2006. The building today still looks very similar but its distinctive awning has been taken down.
Then ... Below, director Yates captures Enrico's convivial outdoor vibe in this shot aimed through the front patio. Swiss Louis is seen kitty corner across the street.
Then ... Bullitt and the informant, Eddie (Justin Tarr), cross the street to the Galaxie Club at 501 Broadway opposite Enrico's . Bullitt learns that Ross is being pursued by the mob for absconding with 2 million dollars. More recently this site has been home to The Black Cat, Jitney's Bar & Grill and currently the Impala Restaurant.
