The first time you come to n/naka, a kaiseki restaurant a bit north of Sony studios in the Palms area of Los Angeles, you will inevitably soar right by the place, a low, featureless building in a strip of dry cleaners and tarot-card readers surrounded by a raked zen garden in 50 shades of gray. There is no sign, no valet parking, no hint that you are entering a restaurant instead of a high-toned back office. When you find your way through the front door, you will be greeted by name - reservations are mandatory - and led through the spare, elegant dining room to a serene private room or possibly a nook that looks like the sleeping alcove in an expensive Manhattan studio apartment.

The Palmdale City Council has decided to make its meetings more user friendly by moving the public comments segment from the end of the sessions to the beginning. The meetings also will start at 7 p.m., instead of 7:30. The council's regular meetings are held once a month, and typically have lengthy agendas that delay the public testimony on non-agenda issues to as late as midnight.

Unseeded Coronado High School disregarded the seedings and played the kind of water polo that has earned it the past three 3-A San Diego Section titles. The Islanders (26-4) upset top-seeded Poway, 6-2, to reach the finals Saturday. Coronado faces Monte Vista at the Jewish Community Center at 5:30 p.m. in the first game of a championship doubleheader. Poway (25-5) couldn't get the kind of quality shots it needed.

SO long sauce. Hello emulsion. Puree. Foam. Menus around town seem to be missing that simple S-word, a word very familiar to diners. The menu at Sona, David and Michelle Myers' stylish new restaurant on La Cienega Boulevard, features dishes with ginger ponzu, chai foam, rabbit reduction, watercress and shellfish broth, chicken-olive oil jus, curry leaf jus, celery root puree and maple emulsion. The word "sauce" does not appear.
