Christy Bono opened her first restaurant here in 1994. She'd learned the business from her famous father, Sonny, who ran a West Hollywood restaurant named Bono's in the '80s. Christy's has flourished in Long Beach, where the clientele is steady and where, in Bono's words, the restaurants don't reflect the flavor of the month. Now she and partner George Mlouf have opened a second restaurant, Nico's, in Naples. Her dad would have been proud.

After the restaurant trendies have moved on and the regulars have started to get antsy for change, owners often try to spruce up their restaurants' image. Sometimes the change can be as simple as a new coat of paint; sometimes a new chef is brought in or a major remodeling is done. Sometimes the restaurant completely changes its name and concept. On the north end of Santa Monica's Main Street, two restaurants recently underwent make-over jobs, and the results are very different.

The Yucatan Grill is a narrow, little cafe that feels mostly like a small neighborhood bar, a bar that also serves food. A waitress's first words are apt to be, "Would you like beer, wine or homemade sangria?" The interior is all highly saturated colors: yellow, hot pink, deep blue, sky blue. A row of small tables topped with thick brown paper lines the wooden banquette. There are more tables outside on a cozy, small patio.

Starlight, Star Bright: Antonio Montana, formerly sous chef at Spago and chef at Cucina Paradiso in Redondo Beach, has opened his own place, Starlight Cafe. Partner Alejandro Romero showed him an available space in Culver City one Saturday and they'd made a deal by Sunday. (Says Montana, "I like to do things quickly.") Now the place is open, and Montana is serving Italian food cooked in an open kitchen seven days a week.

Gwen Says Goodbye, Getty: Gwen Gulliksen has left her post as chef of the restaurant at the Getty Center. Her departure has prompted the Getty to restructure its culinary hierarchy. "The position of executive chef no longer exists," said Cathy Klose, food and event services manager. Instead, there's a general manager, Jim Dodge, who began his career as a pastry chef, and a chef de cuisine, Helene Kennan. The restaurant still serves lunch Tuesday through Saturday and brunch on Sunday.

Main Street by the shore differs a bit from its namesakes in the heartland. With its mildly Bohemian charm, it's the perfect place to show your Aunt Martha those good-luck crystals she's been reading about or the most far-out collection of chair art in the universe. The street boasts famous browsers like Madonna and Cher and a group of trendy celebrity property owners and merchants to match.

On a crisp, high-gloss day, the kind that conjured memories of onetime mayor Sonny Bono rumbling through the streets on his Harley-Davidson, this town was sadly muted Wednesday. As mourners left flowers, cards and other mementos on Bono's star on a downtown sidewalk, Mary Bono busied herself with details of Friday's funeral for her husband, who was killed Monday when he struck a tree while skiing at South Lake Tahoe.

In a tribute to his incongruous life, congressman Sonny Bono, who entered the public eye in a bobcat vest and matching boots more than 30 years ago, was buried Friday with a 21-gun military salute and a passionate eulogy by his former wife and partner, Cher. "This is probably the most important thing I have ever done in my life," Cher told a filled church, choking back tears. "And I know he's somewhere, loving this."
