Cherie Mercer Twohy For a few years, steakhouses had gone the way of the dinosaurs, but they seem to have made a comeback. There must be a half-dozen big ticket steakhouses in the surrounding zip codes, most with stratospheric prices. With everything ordered a la carte, a steak dinner can easily become a serious investment, with sides of veggies or salad costing double digits. No wonder many of us have cut back on eating red meat, not just for for dietary reasons, but also budgetary ones.

When I was asked to review Gary Bric’s Ramp, which is owned by Burbank’s mayor, I was very excited. I had been looking for a bit of an upscale restaurant to take my wife for her birthday, but I didn’t want to have to drive to Beverly Hills to do it. Located on Hollywood Way in Burbank, the restaurant is literally adjacent to the Golden State (5) Freeway onramp. It was the perfect solution. Reservations are recommended if you wish to sit in the bar/lounge, but not necessary for the dining room unless it’s an extremely busy time.

Adam Durigh, a 25-year-old laid-off trucker from Nebraska, had never been in a shelter before going to the Burbank National Guard Armory a week ago. Having made the hard choice to house his 1-year-old son with the father of his ex-wife, Durigh came to the shelter out of desperation and pragmatism. “There just wasn’t enough room at my father-in-law’s,” he said Monday night, as guests at the shelter prepared to eat a steak dinner Union Rescue Mission prepared for the holidays.

Bill Scollon News-Press and Leader OK. Let's get this out of the way right up front. The Place for Steak, despite its unpretentious appearance, is not for the feint of wallet. It's priced not terribly far below places like Morton's. But if you're in the mood for great beef in a friendly setting, you might want to steak your claim here. The small restaurant is housed in a, well, in a converted house. The deep rose walls and forest green carpet set off linen-clad tables.

Steve Mead, as a 17-year-resident, does not know the true Bob's Big Boy. He should not worry about who bought the chain 30 years ago. Some of the 200,000 who live in Glendale and who had Bob Wain serve us in 1945 have fond memories. Fifteen cents for double-meat burger, 35 cents for large Spencer steak with a quarter-head of lettuce and a bowl of chili sauce on the table. His grandmother baked the best pies. Anyone who works year after year on the floats should be offered to ride on or near the floats.

The days of summer are dwindling, and kids are complaining about homework already, but my Off to College Boy is savoring the last days of freedom. As the friends peel off to their respective institutes of higher education, he has been left with fewer and fewer burger buddies, so he recently agreed to accompany me on a "burger test" for this column. Free food is always an incentive with this age group. The target was The Great White Hut, a fixture on the corner of California Street and Orange Avenue in Glendale since 1941.

That jubilant scream reverberating through the city last Wednesday morning was my knee-jerk reaction to the boys' return to school. It was impossible to contain my excitement with the smell of freedom (my freedom!) permeating the air. It was cause for celebration -- but where? In the absence of any Wednesday morning champagne brunches, the festivities were delayed until dinnertime. But by the time the well-oiled machine of Ron, Beth and I had picked up two kids from baseball, two kids from soccer and one teenager from home, dining out was as much a time management necessity as a celebration.

It's official. Glendale has arrived. It now has a supper club on par with steakhouses in San Francisco, Miami and Las Vegas. It's no surprise because Michael Mina, head of the Mina Group of restaurants and the force behind Bourbon Steak Los Angeles, has 20 other concept restaurants in cities like San Francisco, Miami and Las Vegas. The Vegas vibe looms large here and I mean that in the best way possible. The space was created from scratch by in-demand design team AvroKO, evoking a first-class lounge feel.

A Glendale man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly brandished a large steak knife at a store employee after refusing to pay for merchandise. Carlos Portillo, 24, was taken into custody about 5:10 p.m. at Salem and Concord streets on suspicion of brandishing a knife, carrying a concealed weapon and being drunk in public, according to Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot. Portillo reportedly visited the neighborhood store to purchase alcohol, but the employee refused to sell it to him because he appeared to be intoxicated.

What is it about a diner that comforts us so? The waitresses with pencils behind their ears? The pies on display? The regulars? The long counter and swivel chairs? Is it the fake flowers and old photographs? Or just the predictable (in a good way) food? The Toasted Bun in Glendale gives you all those things and now they're doing it beyond breakfast and lunchtime. Since 1963 they've been serving up comfort food in an easy-going environment. In the mornings, they sling hash and eggs.

With all due respect to Donna Huffaker Evans, her comparison of the two steak houses, Taylor’s and Smoke House, was, frankly, undercooked (“An ache for a good steak,” July 18). As a frequent diner to both establishments, I can truthfully say that Taylor’s is the finer steak house, reasonably priced, high quality and great drinks. Only occasionally does one get all these ingredients at Smoke House, which appears to have seen its better days. Now, if you want a truly interesting future “Food Fight” installment of steak houses, compare Taylor’s and Damon’s.

Steak. In the summer, it’s what Dad grilled on the barbecue. In the winter, it’s what Mom tossed onto the electric grill. The sizzle sounded the same. Always a generous portion, always pink in the center and paired with potatoes. The only variable was vegetables — stringy green beans or shriveled peas. These I avoided like anthrax. For me, it was all about the main attraction — the beef. Living in Burbank, I’m a quick jaunt from two classic, family-owned steak houses: Smoke House, at Lakeside Drive and Olive Avenue; and Taylor’s Steakhouse, a mere 13 miles to the east in La CaƱada Flintridge (the original Taylors, which opened in 1953, just west of downtown Los Angeles, relocated to the Mid-Wilshire District in 1970.

Students need to know dangers If kids were taught to cautiously handle fireworks then they could safely enjoy the exciting and artistic recreation activity. Because fireworks may be hazardous and fatal if not properly handled, it does not mean children should be taught to never play with them. Take steak knives, for example. If children were educated to the damage the steak knives can cause to a human being, then they may be afraid to use them on a steak. Along the same line, if fireworks safety procedures were taught to the children, they could have the enjoyment of them.
