    Dining Review: Skaf's is a great way to eat, socialize
    A few years ago I wrote a review of Skaf's Lebanese Cuisine on Chevy Chase Drive in Glendale. At the time, I spoke effusively of the succulent chicken shwarma and gushed over the addictive cabbage salad. When the Skaf family, specifically sons Daniel...

    A Word, Please: A reader wonders what's with "with."

  • The boss is back with Cafe Solé

    The boss is back with Cafe Solé
    La Cañada Flintridge's Cafe Solé has a Manhattan Italian restaurant feel to it, with a modern but classical decor. It's certainly not what you would expect in a strip mall. The restaurant is close enough to the Glendale (2) Freeway to hit it with a frozen...

    Fine dining with a few kinks

    Folks who work in the cluster of office buildings in the 400 block of North Brand Boulevard have something new to cheer about. Just outside their front door lies the Beyond the Stars Cafe, a small but mighty sandwich, salad and coffee spot with quality...

    History buff lived when famous aviators ruled the skies
    Chuck A. Bausback was 8 years old when Bob Hope Airport opened in 1930 as United Airport. The 87-year-old moved with his family to La Crescenta in 1928. He graduated from Glendale High School because La Crescenta High School hadn't opened yet. When...

    Shabby chic dawns in town
    There I was, minding my own business at the stoplight at Briggs and Foothill, when a huge Kogi BBQ truck rolled by. I followed in hot pursuit thinking, "What are the originators of hipster food truck dining doing in our sleepy little La Crescenta?" I was...
  • Small Wonders: Pools full of nostalgia

    Remember when movies started with the lights dimming and the curtain opening? I can't recall the last time I saw a movie that started with the curtains dramatically sweeping apart as the projector chattered its images upon it. There were no...
