Eater compiled a list of Malibu restaurants affected by the Woolsey Fire yesterday. But the destruction path is so vast, and requires another look at the Valley side of the Santa Monica mountains, including Thousand Oaks, Chatsworth, Calabasas, Simi Valley, Agoura Hills, and Westlake Village.
As of today, the Woolsey Fire has destroyed 96,314 acres, 435 structures, and cost two people their lives. The Los Angeles Times reported the blaze as 35 percent contained, but these confirmations are moving targets. Only yesterday, CBS LA reported that hundreds of Thousand Oaks residents were allowed to return home, only to immediately re-evacuate after the Woolsey Fire sparked a new flare-up.
Many of these areas neighborhoods are still under evacuation, and some restaurant owners haven’t been able to survey their properties for damage. It’s been an incredibly tough week for the area, as a mass-shooting occurred in Thousand Oaks only a week ago.

SIP Malibu Grapes — The Malibu winery and tasting room was completely lost on Friday, November 9.
Kristy’s Roadhouse Malibu — Right next door to SIP Malibu Grapes, only the Kristy’s Roadhouse sign remains as of November 9.
Old Place Restaurant — The access bridge to classic roadhouse the Old Place was completely damaged, but the 48-year-old restaurant was spared from any damage. It’s unclear when the access bridge will be repaired or if the restaurant will close as a result of the bridge damage.

This bridge on the way to The Old Place has been a part of our weekend chopper rides through the canyons ever since I can remember. Sad day, but so thankful the Old Place remains standing. The canyons roads and PCH are changed forever. @butchwalker @toddstopera @matteddmenson @deanmicetich @noahabramsstudio
Triunfo Creek Vineyards — The winery isn’t saying much about the damage, but the website asks that no one visit the winery in Agoura Hills.
Inn Of The Seventh Ray — Due to mandatory evacuations, the Inn Of The Seventh Ray closed on November 10. All Topanga restaurants are in the same predicament as this established Topanga Canyon eatery, and are unable to survey the any damage until the roads are deemed safe.
The Rock Store — Ed and Vern’s motorcycle-heavy market and eatery is fine, but the bridge to access it appears completely melted.
Mastro’s Ocean Club, Malibu— The steakhouse is undamaged and opened on November 14.
Chick-fil-A — A Chick-fil-A restaurant in Westlake Village is only accepting carry-out and drive-thru orders and closed the patio, according to Nation’s Restaurant News. A Moorpark Road location temporarily closed, but will reopen Monday night.
Malibu Wines — It’s unclear whether Malibu Wines survived the fire. The grounds also maintain animals, and is focusing on their care while fixing its enclosures at the moment.
Saddle Peak Lodge — The leafy canyon chop house reported no structural damage on Facebook.
Wildflour Bakery & Cafe — The bakery closed on November 9, and reopened today.
Moody Rooster — The Agoura Hills restaurant was spared, but the owners closed on November 9 because they needed to evacuate their homes. They reopened yesterday.
The Rosenthal Winery — This winery and tasting room is right in the epicenter of the Woolsey Fire. According to the winery’s Instagram, the owners last surveyed the property on November 9.

Photo taken at 4pm on November 10th, 2018. We are still going strong here at the tasting room, but we will be closed until further notice. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by the Malibu Fires. Fire stations are collecting donations for all the brave firefighters risking their lives to stop the fires. Stay safe, California! #californiastrong
