Bonnie Fitzgerald, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- Eat Well is a popular coffee shop featuring freshly made, American-style country food like soups, roast meats, vegetables and salad dressings. Lima Leko, the owner, does the baking of the delicious breads, pies, brownies and chocolate chip cookies. Among the dozen salad selections is the $2.50 green salad. This arrives on a medium-size oval plate containing a good combination of Romaine and head lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber, and accented with a small amount of red cabbage and red onion.

mario'sIf Mario's hasn't been a location for a movie shoot, it should be. It's the quintessential neighborhood Italian deli, with soccer posters, Italian flags and gigantic cheeses hanging from the rafters, bin after bin of every shape pasta one can think of, and that familiar aroma of garlic, salami and olive oil. Conversations in Italian ebb and flow, adding to the atmosphere. The glass cases are filled with an irresistible array of antipasti, including oil-cured olives. These plump and wrinkly deep black beauties are sometimes hard to find, and they are among my favorites.

Jenna Bordelon MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- A fire broke out above the rotisserie at Kenny Rogers Roasters, forcing employees and customers to evacuate the restaurant. Firefighters were called in Monday afternoon to douse the blaze that began in a duct above the chicken rotisserie at 1001 N. San Fernando Blvd. Capt. Bob Reinhardt said a buildup of grease caused the flames and heavy smoke that caused about $5,000 damage to the structure and about $15,000 damage to its contents.

DAVID SILVA "Whalahadida!" "Um, I think he's asking my name. I'm David, Steve. Nice to meet you." It was my third week as a nursing assistant at Parkview Meadows, an intensive-care facility for the developmentally disabled in Orange County. I'd spent the previous two weeks learning the rules about caring for people wholly unable to care for themselves. There were a million of them. Don't leave the patients alone, even for a minute. Don't feed them anything until I'd tested the temperature of the food on my own skin.

With his recent reelection, President Obama has won the power to pardon more turkeys on Thanksgiving. But so does every one of us, by choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance that gives thanks for our good fortune, health, and happiness with a life-affirming, cruelty-free feast of vegetables, fruits, and grains. And here are more terrific reasons: • You will stay alert through the entire football game. • You are what you eat. Who wants to be a “butterball”? • Your vegetarian kid won't have to boycott the family dinner.

Remember that commercial, featuring Clara Peller's plaintive query, "Where's the Beef"? Clara would have been in heaven, Brazilian-style, at Gauchos Village. This enormous all-you-can-eatery features swords filled with all things beef, as well as chicken, lamb and pork, carved to order. Vegetarians might want to take a pass, as meat certainly takes center stage in a constant parade of protein. Dining at this churrascaria (spit-roasted barbecue eatery) is quite an experience.

What's in a deli? Well, cold cuts, of course, and sandwiches, definitely. Salads are a plus for a deli, and some sweets are good, especially if they are strategically placed for impulse buying. But a deli is more than the coolers of sodas and beer, Lotto tickets and chips. A good deli's gotta have a vibe. A great deli's gotta have heart. Glenoaks Deli has a big heart ? just ask the many local schools, churches and other fundraisers who rely on the 6- or 8-foot sandwiches or lavish lavosh trays, at lovingly reasonable prices.

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.

bacco trattoriaThe space last occupied by La Scala has been transformed into a warm, Italian-style trattoria that is part wine bar, part restaurant and part deli. And the sum of its parts is delicious. The pleasing ambience features dark woods, brick, white linens and a tile mosaic of Bacchus, the restaurant's namesake and the Roman god of wine. His influence begins with a robust wine list, extends to the wine sauces that grace several entrees, and ends at the beautiful wine bar where you can enjoy the fruit of the vine.
