A casual, sit-down Vietnamese-centric restaurant is now open adjacent to what will soon be a completely renovated entrance to the Glendale Galleria. Called 9021pho, chef Kimmy Tang, a partner on the project, is well-known in the culinary world for her unique, health-conscious approach. And the restaurant fulfills the mall's goal of finding a unique vendor for such a prominent location. “You can get lots of burgers and fries everywhere,” said Shoshanna Puccia, senior marketing manager for the Galleria.

As an asthmatic, I was originally pleased to hear of Glendale's program to limit public smoking - I spent 16 weeks in the hospital last year alone as a result of uncontrolled smoking in the building where I live. In order to get away from this activity, I began escaping to a local popular McDonald's restaurant. Regrettably, little effort is made to control smoking outside near the entrances. At intervals, workers in the building, customers and even McDonald's employees light up in the back right under the air conditioning intake vents, flooding the restaurant with smoke within seconds.

Two men were arrested Sunday afternoon after police found 24 pounds of marijuana in a locked container inside a parked BMW outside an In-N-Out Burger, officials said. Stephen Thompson, 27, of Canoga Park and Trevor Alcorn, 30, of Millville, near Redding in Northern California, were arrested in the parking lot of the In-N-Out in the 300 block of Harvey Drive, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. The marijuana was divided into 24 1-pound bags, which Lorenz said could be worth $150,000 to $200,000 if sold on the streets.

The Glendale City Council on Tuesday created a last-minute three-tier system regulating smoking in outdoor dining areas - a move that will increase the number of smokers able to be accommodated at some restaurants. The change to what had initially been agreed to a week earlier was fraught with contention on the dais, with Councilman Dave Weaver, who voted against the amended rules, likening the situation to a “circus.” According to the changes, which were approved on a narrow 3-2 vote, smokers can sit in 25% of outdoor dining areas that are less than 2,000 square feet, 50% of spaces between 2,000 and 5,000 square feet and 66% of any larger open-air dining spots.

Two companies controlled by billionaire developer Rick Caruso were found liable by a jury this week for water damage to a restaurant formerly at the Americana at Brand and ordered to pay $125,000 in compensation. In May 2009, staff at Caffe Primo noticed the hardwood floor in the restaurant was buckling and shortly thereafter - without any contact from Caffe Primo - Caruso's representatives began sending weekly letters to restaurant owner Tony Riviera demanding the floor be repaired, according to court documents.

What has happened to standards in our country? A very few years ago if you wanted to a really nice restaurant for some special occasion, there was a sign on the door that said “Men must wear coats and ties” and women should be appropriately dressed. I recently went to an upscale restaurant for a special occasion. My dinner was ruined. A group was seated at the next table. The men were wearing old shorts and soiled T-shirts. The women were equally as inappropriately dressed in unironed cut-offs or shorts.

The former site of the controversial Montrose Collection, which has sat vacant since 2010, will become home to a new restaurant - Chandelier - after the owner addressed concerns about inadequate parking and gave assurances that the business will not operate as a banquet hall. It will be open until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 11 p.m. the rest of the week. Alfred Teichert has owned the property in the 2800 block of Honolulu Avenue for several years, including the period of time during which Montrose Collection ran into trouble for operating as a banquet hall and wreaked havoc in the surrounding neighborhood because of a lack of parking.

The son of a 38-year-old man who was shot and killed at a Sherman Oaks restaurant said he "wants justice" in his father's death.

Lopez, who worked as a cook at the restaurant, had just escorted a group of men outside of the restaurant who had become angry while waiting for their food, police said.

When Frank's Restaurant, a Burbank landmark, went dark in March, a collective cry went out from Clybourn to Alameda avenues, from Forest Lawn to Bel Aire drives. The Media City has seen too many of its longtime restaurants, dives and greasy spoons boarded up, demolished or simply forgotten. Alfredo's Granada, a Burbank Boulevard fixture for nearly four decades, closed in October 2010, only to reopen eight months later. Genio's Restaurant, which fed generations of locals, closed shop for good in 2006.

When Ruby Bugarin, co-owner of Pepe's Restaurant in Montrose, learned her outdoor dining permit would jump to $650 from $50, she was outraged, a feeling shared by many restaurant owners in the city. But few business owners who would be affected by the fee hikes have been attending public outreach meetings aimed at presenting new options and getting feedback. At the second meeting Monday morning at City Hall, just four restaurateurs were in the audience, including Bugarin. At the first meeting in March, there were just seven, even though there are currently about 70 outdoor dining permits issued.
