Think of Eat Well as a diner with a difference. Your typical diner has a certain vibe ? kind-a retro, kind-a cool. Eat Well's got that. The leatherette booths, the gumball machine, stools at the counter, the vinyl-coated menus ? Eat Well's got those, too. So what's the difference? Well, the logo hints at it. "Eat Well, 'cause your mama told you to." If your mama was into soy and whole grains, she'd be delighted that you're eating well here. Along with the burgers and blue plate specials, the menu features lots of granola, tofu and vegetarian options.

Diners are the kind of eateries that appeal to the masses — folks looking for home-style cooking at an affordable price, parties of one who prefer the counter space for easier newspaper perusal and the bedraggled likes of those who over-indulged the night before, looking for the perfect greasy dish to sop up their alcoholic excess. You don’t have to drive too far around Glendale or Burbank to spot these greasy spoons, a distinction more charming than disparaging in today’s culinary terminology.

The Jewel City Diner in the Americana at Brand has two significant things going for it. One, it’s the least expensive eating establishment where you can sit outside and gaze at the beautiful Christmas tree and dancing fountains, and two, the people who work there are really nice. Other than that, there are few reasons to go here. The food is about as adventurous as room service at the Ramada in Pittsburgh. And about as tasty too. It may be less expensive than the other restaurants in the Americana, but it’s not cheap.

Marisa Sanders remembers when television icon Huell Howser wandered into Burbank's Tallyrand restaurant two years ago. She gushed when he sat in front of her in a swivel chair at the diner's counter. “I said, 'I just want you to know - I know who you are,'” she recalled. “'My husband is your No. 1 fan.'” [For the Record, Jan. 14, 2013: A previous version of this story mispelled Marisa Sanders' first name. ] By the end of Howser's meal, the 20-year Tallyrand waitress had shared the whole history of the family-owned diner, including that both owners had met their respective spouses at the restaurant, and that it's famous for its hot turkey sandwich.

A crowd estimated between 2,000 and 3,000 turned out Wednesday evening to help celebrate the grand opening of AMC Theatres' new 16-screen complex on Palm Avenue. Hollywood celebrities, city officials, residents and others sampled food and got glimpses of their favorite celebrities as part of a block party and film tribute featuring actor Kevin Bacon. Bacon, wife Kyra Sedgwick and a host of other actors, including James Cromwell, Donna Mills, Gordon Clapp and Ed Begley Jr., were on hand for the red-carpet benefit, which raised an estimated $80,000 for Earth Communications Office, an environmental action group, and the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank.
