Piedad Yorba Sowl was a woman before her time. She operated a series of Spanish restaurants in this area in the early 1900s and, in doing so, popularized California Spanish food, contributed to the romantic "Ramona" mythology of Southern California, and created a major tourist attraction. She also introduced Glendale to Los Angeles and the nation. So writes Sean Bersell, who has prepared a detailed profile of this remarkable woman as part of the Glendale Historical Society home tour of the Casa Verdugo area in northwest Glendale on Sept.

A restaurant patron was arrested Saturday after he allegedly refused to pay for his $46 squid and steak dinner that he claimed was "too rare," and then assaulted workers who tried to stop him from fleeing, police said. Joseph Lee was taken into custody about 8:52 p.m. on suspicion of assault and refusing to pay for his dinner at Zono Sushi in Glendale, according to Glendale police. Most of the incident was recorded on the server's cell phone, police added. Before Lee was released Sunday on $60,000 bail, he reportedly told police he was a first-time customer at the restaurant in the 100 block of North Maryland and was dissatisfied with his meal.

Going out to eat is supposed to be one of life's pleasures. You don't have to cook or clean up afterwards. Plus, servers take your order and bring your food. For just a little bit of money you can feel a lot of specialness - even if it's only for an hour or two. Unfortunately, sometimes the experience is lacking. As a coffee drinker, I expect to receive refills once my cup is near empty. So it is especially frustrating when one dines out and has a server who doesn't do that. My wife and I often comment that the establishments which have good service, even coffee shops, have a dedicated worker who refills water and drink classes.

A bill introduced this week by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) to protect against what he called “shakedown lawsuits” comes as 12 businesses in his district face similar legal action for not posting simple signage - violations that have spurred thousands of dollars in settlement agreements in the past. In the last two months Miguel Custodio Law in Pasadena has informed five restaurants each in Burbank and Pasadena and two others in South Pasadena that they are in violation of Proposition 65, a voter approved law that requires establishments to post “clear and reasonable” warnings if the public is at risk of being exposed to chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects.

Glendale played a starring role in the 1945 movie "Mildred Pierce," the story of a single mother who opens a restaurant right here in the heart of Glendale. The movie was based on a book by the same name written by James M. Cain in 1941. “Cain portrayed Glendale as the epitome of the working-class aspirations and disappointments in Depression-era California,” said Arlene Vidor, past president of the Glendale Historical Society, who wrote an article on the movie for the society's Summer 2010 newsletter.

I wish you would instruct your restaurant reviewers about the city of Glendale. It is neither a part of, nor a suburb of, the city of Pasadena. It seems like nine out of 10 reviews in the Glendale News-Press are in Pasadena. Glendale has some nice restaurants - and some funky, undiscovered ones that we will never hear about because our “local” newspaper prefers to focus on a nearby city instead of our own. I like to eat out, but would never drive to Pasadena for a hamburger. Please support our local restaurants!

After almost 25 years in Montrose, Rocky Cola Café will serve its final burgers on Sunday - an end wrought by stiffer competition from restaurants that have opened during the past two decades and a too slow recovery from the recession. Don't expect the building to be vacant for long, though. Rocky Cola representatives are in talks with four prospective restaurant owners to take over the lease, though none appear interested in keeping the name, said Lucy DiMino, the general manager who has worked at the establishment since its early days.
