Laurel DiGangi, Enjoy! BURBANK -- With its cushiony booths, super-efficient waitersand inexpensive, generously portioned dinner specials, Lancers Restaurant offers comfy dining in the tradition of all-American family restaurants. The high-quality food is typical coffee-shop fare, so don't expect arugula and baby mixed greens. But the iceberg lettuce salad, colored by small chunks of purple cabbage, was exceptionally crispy and fresh. Complementing it was a tangy blue cheese dressing graced by large curds of real blue cheese.

Let me warn you. Walking into Urban Eats can be a bit of a shock. If you are expecting carpeted floors, upholstered booths and a hostess standing by, take a deep breath and just keep walking across the concrete floor right to the order counter. This is urban, downtown sophistication, the modern, sterile atmosphere one expects to find in the trendier Santa Monica or Manhattan. There is no one here to seat you, no leather-bound menus. The specials are written on a giant chalkboard next to the counter.

The Chop Stop, Burbank's newest "fast-food" restaurant, advertises a salad "loaded with fresh, wholesome foods that are nutritious, delicious and fast. " From my experience eating lunch at the Chop Stop with my wife on the day of its grand-opening celebration, Jan. 7, it delivered in two categories — fast and nutritious. It's fast because everything is pre-chopped, but both my wife's Cobb Chop ($9.24) and my Chop Shop Classic ($8.49) had too much dressing, which made the salads too soggy and lacking in crispness.

Summer is burger season, but frankly, this summer is shaping up to be nearly too hot to fire up the grill. If you are hankering for a hamburger, but can't bear the thought of burning your own briquettes, head out to The Habit Burger Grill in Glendale. It's cool as an ice cream soda inside, with a buzz of conversation and the aroma of the grill filling the air-conditioned air. Choices are the classic burger-fries-and-soda combos, with a smattering of grilled sandwiches and salads.

When it comes to great pizza, it is all about the crust. Forget sauce recipes and mozzarella cheese. Perfect pizza begins with the dough, like fine wine builds on the right grapes. One soggy crust and you end up with toppings and sauce all over your lap. And what's worse than an over-baked crust that crunches like a mouthful of croutons? The great pizza debate between New York and Chicago has nothing to do with toppings. Chicago says the crust must be almost as thick as a loaf of French bread.

I recently found my Nana's old scrapbook hidden in the bottom of a steamer trunk in our garage. Inside, the yellowed pages were filled with matchbooks, napkins and menus from restaurants and clubs in Hollywood and the Valley dating back to the 1930s and 1940s. Most of these places have long since vanished, but that feel of old Hollywood, when men wore white dinner jackets with black bow ties and women never left the house without a hat and gloves, is not entirely lost today. With a little imagination, Lasher's Steakhouse in Burbank has recaptured a little of that old-school glamour and sophistication, minus the requisite dinner jacket.

Sophisticated, yet welcoming and relaxed, the new Cucina Rustica is a fine addition to the restaurants of Montrose. The atmosphere is lovely, with comfortable and elegant furnishings, well-thought-out lighting, excellent acoustics and a stylish bar serving fine wines and, pretty soon, cocktails. The service is friendly and attentive. The mood is right for romantic dinners, business lunches, girls? night out, and even gastronomically adventurous families. It welcomes all and guarantees a pleasant experience.
