It was a hot Saturday afternoon in Downtown Burbank. I could have been sitting in my air-conditioned living room, ice-cold diet root beer in hand watching the Yankees make another pitching change. Instead, my cousin Ron and I were trying desperately to make par on the back nine. Our score cards always determine who buys dinner, which, in our case, really comes down to which one of us admits taking the most mulligans. We really had no plans on where to eat. We parked the car and started walking down San Fernando Boulevard from the mall.

Healthy BitesAmong the world's cuisines, a Mediterranean diet is often cited as one of the healthiest. With an emphasis on fresh ingredients, savory herbs and spices, citrus juices and olive oil, it's also one of the most delicious. At Healthy Bites, you can sample these wonderful flavors and know you're treating your body right too. The restaurant occupies a narrow storefront where everything is made to go, a fact made plain by the obvious lack of seating. Healthy Bites opens early and offers a variety of espresso drinks, coffee, tea, pastries, bagels and croissants.

It was the scene right out of a Hollywood movie. The airplane in the background ready to whisk her away to safety, the handsome hero who stays behind to fight on and the long, goodbye kiss that …. OK. I admit I get a little carried away after seeing a good movie. And to tell you the truth, even after eating a gallon or two of popcorn and way too many Gummy Bears at the AMC Theater in Burbank, my cousin Ron and I found ourselves hungry. Fortunately, we discovered the Golden Chicken Greek & Mediterranean Cuisine right next door.

Mark Kawakami, Enjoy! LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Fly into LAX and drive around the Westside and you might think Northern Italian restaurants were on every block. But fly into Burbank, where good trattorias can be counted faster than it takes to say trattoria, and you get a different impression. Our area seems to feature more tomato-based spaghetti and ravioli. This makes Le Betulle Ristorante stand out. At the edge of La Canada Flintridge near the border of La Crescenta, Le Betulle is a casually elegant place, decorated like a Roman villa, right down to the plastic grapevines, white columns and a picture window of a balcony overlooking a river.

Cherie Mercer Twohy Divine Kitchen? A lofty claim, but perhaps there is a cherub flitting about the kitchen of Divina Cucina, a popular Montrose dining spot. On a steamy weeknight, the dining room was crowded with convivial groups beating the barometer with salads, pastas and more. An enclosed patio offers additional seating. Softly sponge-painted walls blend from ocher to sunrise yellow, with a flight of angels cavorting on one end of the ceiling.

More than twice the number of volunteers are giving time to Bethlehem Village, and several new attractions have been added, organizers said. Last year, about 75 volunteers were involved in the Nativity show and behind the scenes, said Ann-Marie Murrell, director and co-producer. ?This year, I?ve had 175 people,? she said. ?It?s an outreach to the community but something every person in our church can participate in, and all ages, from 9 months to one woman who is pushing 100.?

The ancient Lebanese, known as Phoenicians, were well-known for their maritime expertise as sailors and navigators, and for being adventure-loving merchants. Lebanese cuisine has been around since pre-Biblical times and its popular Mediterranean diet consists of a simple fare that is fresh and flavorful. Close your eyes and picture yourself near the sun-drenched waters of distant shores surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, exotic music playing softly while dancers gently sway to the hypnotic melody.

I was going to start this review by telling you how NYPD Pizza would make a great spot for that pre-Thanksgiving dinner or how a plate of their pasta will definitely keep you going for those day-after-Thanksgiving sales. While that is all true, and I still recommend it, I have to mention the best part of New York is on his way to Southern California. So, if you don’t mind, this review is for Joe Torre, the new manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Dear Mr. Torre, if by chance, while you’re checking out your new digs at Dodger Stadium you happen to read this review, I hope you will let a California girl recommend the perfect place for you to unwind when you get a little homesick for New York City pizza and pasta.
