Leslie Perea, Enjoy! BURBANK -- Piero's, a long-standing restaurant in Burbank, has now been passed down from the well-known chef and radio personality to his daughters -- one manages and one is the chef -- and the results are quite tasty. Dinner started out wonderfully with a bread basket filled with individual sourdough loaves and served with plain virgin olive oil. The bread was fresh and soft with a great chewy crust. For our appetizer, we ordered the crab cakes, which were made with real crabmeat and covered with a thin, light, crunchy breading.

Golfers can expect a new restaurant menu and synergy between golf and food operations at DeBell Golf Club next week with the Canyon Grille, the club's new eatery, slated to open for breakfast and lunch on Friday. Tom Shayman, 17-year owner and operator of the Burbank Bar and Grille on North San Fernando Road, has taken the helm of the club's restaurant. “We want to make everybody feel warm and welcome here,” Shayman said Friday. “We're really going to be invested in the golf operation.” Customers will be able to enjoy a whole new menu, which Shayman described as “California continental,” with comfort dishes such as macaroni and cheese, burgers and flatbread pizzas, along with ahi tuna and salmon entrées.

Tomo Sushi's Tom wants to give you the best sushi in town. He goes out of his way to find the freshest fish and says that "you can taste the difference!" Even though Tom's heritage is Chinese, he has a love of Japanese cuisine, having studied in Japan, as well as China. But Tomo Sushi has more than, well, sushi. The menu at Tomo Sushi includes other Japanese favorites like sashimi, tempura, yakitori, teriyaki, soups, noodles, and more, including vegetarian and luncheon specials.

The opening of the Canyon Grille at DeBell Golf Club was pushed back to Monday due to kitchen equipment repairs taking longer than expected, operators said. Originally slated to open Friday, the new eatery will be replacing the club's Clubhouse Grill. The owners of the former restaurant announced a year ago they would close in December. Tom Shayman, 17-year owner and operator of the Burbank Bar and Grille on North San Fernando Road, has taken the helm of the club's new restaurant.

Tucked behind a tree on the north side of East Magnolia, just west of Glenoaks Boulevard, is a lovely little café that serves toothsome sandwiches, soups and salads to a loyal cadre of customers, many of whom no doubt, like me, stumbled upon the place quite by accident. I've driven by Lily's probably 100 times and never noticed it, even though it's been there nearly nine years. Open early to serve gourmet teas, coffees and pastries, Lily's is mainly a workday lunch location.

Lola'sHaving never visited Peru, I claim no frame of reference for how authentically Peruvian Lola's cuisine might actually be. But within my frame of reference for affordable and tasty, Lola's fits the bill. The décor is eclectic, with the focus on an open kitchen in back, where the "All You Can Eat Lunch Buffet" takes center stage Monday through Friday. Cheerful cooks man the buffet line to describe and serve the dishes available. At $7.99, this lunch buffet is a bargain, featuring several salads (mixed green, Caesar and Russian potato salad)

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.
