The opening of yet another trendy eatery in Los Angeles may leave some taste buds feeling a bit blase. But when the ritzy new place, bankrolled in part by a major partner in Spago, turns up in East Los Angeles, tongues start wagging. Today's opening of the city's newest chic Mexican restaurant, Tamayo, is being eagerly anticipated mainly for where it is. "It's about time East L.A. had a place like this," said Lydia Lopez, a longtime community activist. "I can't wait for it to open."

Most of the workers, making as much as $18 an hour including workers' compensation benefits, competed with 40 other applicants to replace the housing project's water and sewer system. They say they are now the envy of their friends.
