  • Shekarchi does stews delectably

    Shekarchi does stews delectably
    We're all familiar with kebab restaurants, with dozens of choices in the Glendale/Burbank area alone. But how many of us have gone deeper into their menus to savor some of the more complex and savory dishes of the Mediterranean and African countries?...
  • Small Wonders: On letting your kids be themselves

    One of the most valuable parenting lessons I learned came before I was even a parent. It had nothing to do with diapers, puberty or college funds. It had everything to do with macaroni and cheese. I was single, childless and naturally wise beyond my...
  • Restaurant automation has arrived

    It's official. The future has finally arrived. Just like in "The Jetsons" cartoon, you can now push buttons on a computer and the meal of your choice slides out on a tray. OK, maybe not immediately and certainly not for free, but at the new Specialty's...
  • Diner now serves good comfort food into the night

    Diner now serves good comfort food into the night
    What is it about a diner that comforts us so? The waitresses with pencils behind their ears? The pies on display? The regulars? The long counter and swivel chairs? Is it the fake flowers and old photographs? Or just the predictable (in a good way) food?...
  • Lots of surprises at Lucy's

    Lots of surprises at Lucy's
    Lucy’s Pizza Corner was full of surprises. Its Burbank Boulevard location is not in the best Burbank neighborhood — it is attached to a liquor store and its overhead sign says, “Al Forno.” Furthermore, it has no web presence. If...
  • Dining Review: Some dishes tasty, others confusing

    Dining Review: Some dishes tasty, others confusing
    I'm all for fusion cuisine — French-Japanese, Thai-Vietnamese, Tex-Mex. But there's fusion and then there's confusion. I'm afraid the Korean-Italian fare at Hello Pizza subscribes to the latter. When you're in the mood for pizza, you typically...
  • A Word, Please: A whopper of an error

    There's a burger chain I hate. It's not their food I despise. If I've ever eaten there, I don't remember it. What bothers me is the company's advertising. Anyone who's seen a Carl's Jr. TV commercial would surely guess that I hate their ads because they...
  • Single salad is the secret to success

    Single salad is the secret to success
    The new Giuseppe’s in Montrose hits all the right notes. The owners transformed the interior of the old DaFranco’s Italian restaurant to reflect what the Montrose community is all about — family, friends and conversation. They kept the...
  • Dining Out: Handy place for barbecue

    Dining Out: Handy place for barbecue
    To the uninitiated motorist driving down Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank on a given Saturday, one might conclude there's a three-alarm fire, with huge billows of smoke near the intersection of Buena Vista Street. But open the car window and you'll know this...
  • Disaster looms? It's time for a road trip!

    When the recent turmoil in the Middle East ignited, causing gas prices to soar higher than Charlie Sheen's ego, there was only one sensible thing to do for the wellbeing of my family: rent a petroleum-swilling RV and hit the road. Nothing makes sense...
  • Spice is key to Skaf's Lebanese fare

    Spice is key to Skaf's Lebanese fare
    If you've been searching for the best Lebanese food in town, you're getting "shawarma." In fact, if you go to Skaf's, you've hit the spot. Skaf's Lebanese Cuisine is not just a good Middle Eastern restaurant. It has just made it to my Top 10 list of...
  • Bea Bea's is the place for breakfast

    Bea Bea's is the place for breakfast
    Burbank is blessed with a number of restaurants that serve good breakfasts, but none can compare with the recently opened Bea Bea's, whose motto is "Breakfast is Everything." You would be hard-pressed to find a wider selection of eggs, pancakes, waffles...
