For Joaquin Lopez, owner of recently opened Mariscos Mi Lindo Sinaloa, the seafood he serves is a direct representation of his diet growing up in the Mexican state of Sinaloa. The restaurant, at 401 W. Los Feliz Road in Glendale, finally held its ribbon cutting earlier this month after being postponed by rains, said Tiza Atanque-Manoukian, Glendale Chamber of Commerce member service administrator. At the grand-opening ceremonies, a spread featuring a sample menu was placed at the center of the restaurant, including delicacies such as spicy lime shrimp, she-devil shrimp, and shrimp shish kabob, along with refried beans and rice to complement the dish.

In La Cañada Flintridge, the family-run Thai restaurant Min's Kitchen has graced Foothill Boulevard for decades. A recent facelift provided newly sponge-painted walls and a lighter appearance to the small dining room. The honey-colored wood tables and chairs add an elegant touch to the décor. Nearly everyone who comes in the door seems to be greeted as an old friend, so it is apparent that Min's has a loyal local following. Servers are hospitable and they're patient with menu questions, but things can get a bit slow, as there are frequently two servers for the entire restaurant, and one or both are fielding a brisk take-out business as well as tending tables.

Cherie Twohy LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Min's Kitchen in La Canada Flintridge sits on busy Foothill Boulevard, conveniently located for its many take-out customers. For 23 years, this family-owned Thai eatery has been serving friendly greetings to regulars and newcomers, along with reasonably priced American-Thai cuisine. Proximity to the street mars the atmosphere a bit, as picture windows at the front reveal a steady whoosh of traffic outside. Sheer shades might diminish the roadside-dining effect.

If you were a new restaurant critic, where would you dine first? I chose Mori Teppan Grill, and was happy I did. The atmosphere was fun, the food superb and the service delightful. The menu accommodated a variety of tastes and dietary needs, portions were right-sized and the prices reasonable. Try it. You'll like it. Teppan is fun. Diners sit around a hot griddle watching the chef brandish sharp knifes and furiously slice, dice and season meats and vegetables. There is a tradition of showmanship and one-upmanship among teppan chefs.

I recently had the pleasure of dining with two teachers from my sons' school. During our fabulous dinner at East Winds Asian Cuisine, I learned a valuable lesson -- you can't judge a restaurant by its neighbors. East Winds is sandwiched between an establishment where my softball team frequently drowned our postgame sorrows (their food was only slightly better than our performance) and a low-budget steakhouse chain whose claim to fame is its cheese bread.

Hard to believe that before Wacky Wok came along, there was no Chinese restaurant in current-day Montrose. Yes, New Moon and Sun Palace are down the street, but the walkable heart and soul of Montrose needed a modern, casual Chinese spot. They've got one in Wacky Wok New York Style Chinese Cuisine. My first question, and probably yours, was, "What makes it New York style?" The answer came from the host (who quadruple-tasks as phone order-taker, waiter and bus boy): "It's more intense, spicy and flavorful.

I'm not sure who approved the design plans for the exterior of the new Zen Sushi and Gourmet Asian Cuisine on Foothill in La Crescenta, but the menacing look of the boxy white building had kept me at bay for months. Plus, I was irrationally angry that our favorite Chinese restaurant, Grandview Palace, which used to be on the site, was so abruptly and unceremoniously closed. But one step inside has got me singing a different tune. The interior of Zen looks as if it was designed by a different person altogether.

As years go, 1984 turned out a lot better than George Orwell's vision had it. In American film, it was a lull between the stylistic breakouts of the '60s and early '70s and the commercial mushrooming of indie films in the late '80s. It also marked the release of three comedies that would never have been made in Hollywood, except they were. "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai," steeped in hip deadpan irony, was released by Fox; "This Is Spinal Tap" was distributed by Embassy, divisions of which were soon to be batted around from owner to owner; and Alex Cox's "Repo Man" was courtesy of Universal.

The recently opened Kyoto Seafood Buffet is without a doubt the best dining bargain in Glendale, especially at lunchtime Monday through Friday, when $8.99 brings you a fully stocked sushi bar, an ice table with fresh oysters, mussels and jumbo cocktail shrimps. Then there’s a hibachi grill with a chef standing by to cook ingredients that you choose, including extremely fresh boneless chicken breast, shrimp and sirloin steak. Kyoto also offers a wide variety of pre-cooked hot Japanese and Chinese dishes that include a very good hot and sour soup, orange chicken and other traditional offerings.

Sitting among other retail and eating establishments in an average strip mall, Exotic Thai Cuisine in Burbank will give you a good but not extraordinary sampling of Thai food in a pleasant setting. Although the interior was festively adorned with lanterns decorated with red hearts — gearing up for Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day — I liked the place but won’t be falling in love with it. Seating is arranged with leather upholstered booths on the perimeter and tables in the center, and the crowd that evening was a mixture of friends, couples and families.

I've yet to procure any reasonably priced tickets to next month's Rolling Stones concerts at the Hollywood Bowl. So in an attempt to scratch my rock 'n' roll itch, I headed to Arbor's Steak & Seafood restaurant to see Sticky Fingers, a Rolling Stones tribute band. Dinner before the show seemed like a no-brainer. But when I announced my plans to friends and neighbors, they looked at me as if I had just proclaimed the Clippers 2006 world champions. Having never been to Arbor's before, I was miffed when their descriptions ran the gamut from "grandmotherly" to "frumpy."
