As outdoor herb gardens perk up with spring, resist the temptation to rush out to harvest the new leaves. Let your garden grow. Instead, take a moment to revisit cooking with dried herbs. Contrary to conventional wisdom, fresh isn't always better. As proof, witness the heaping pile of salami, provolone, lettuce, radicchio, onion, pepperoncini and garbanzo beans known as Nancy's Chopped Salad at Pizzeria Mozza.

CHOPPED salad is the quintessential Los Angeles salad. After all, it's akin to the Cobb salad, which rose to stardom during the heyday of Hollywood's Brown Derby. And who hasn't been tempted to order one in any of a dozen Italian restaurants that have it on the menu as a cornerstone? But let's face it -- for years, the chopped salad has been resting on its laurels -- or its iceberg lettuce, anyway. Fortunately, it's undergone a renaissance lately.

Do you mistrust any food vendor in a shopping center? I do, though I should know better. Actually, I do know better; this is Southern California, and everything's in a shopping center. That means everything from theme restaurants to fine cuisine. But if you're still doubtful, pay a visit to Pascal Epicerie, owned by chef Pascal Olhats and located very near his fine dining room, Pascal, in Plaza Newport. The Epicerie is a full-service delicatessen that opens its doors at 7 a.m.

Fans of Louise's Trattoria, and I am not one of them, will be happy to learn that another one has just been added to the group. The new Beverly Hills Louise's, 342 N. Beverly Drive, (213) 274-4271 joins those already pleasing crowds in Brentwood and on Montana, Pico and Larchmont Boulevard. Judging from the early response, it looks as if this one will prove to be as popular as the others. All offer big portions of reasonably priced Italian food, no reservations and an atmosphere that sizzles with sound.

You can just imagine the conversation: "You know somethin', Louie, why don't they have anyplace in this town like those joints we used to have in Hoboken?" "I don't know, Louie" (everyone in this fantasy is named Louie), "ya mean those little joints where you could get a decent meatball sandwich or a plate of spaghetti and meatballs, manicotti, cannelloni?" "Right, Louie. And none of this raw tomato sauce they got all over L.A. and the pizza with the weird stuff on it.
