WHERE TO STAY Lodging options are slim around Griffith Park, perhaps because there are so many rooms in nearby Hollywood. But there are a few spots, including these. Hotel250, also known as the Hollywood Silver Lake Hotel & Suites, 250 Silver Lake Blvd., Los Angeles 90004; (213) 639-1920, http://www.hotel250.com . This former Holiday Inn, set on a hillside south of the 101 Freeway, has 65 rooms, free Wi-Fi, parking and continental breakfast and an unheated outdoor pool.

Ricardo Zarate, the chef behind Peruvian restaurants Picca and Mo-Chica , will soon open Paiche (named for a giant Amazon river fish) in Marina del Rey. It's still under construction, but Zarate is now working on the menu, sketching dishes for his "Peruvian izakaya " in his notebook. Dishes start as drawings that include everything from a description of the tableware ("round plate" or maybe "short bowl") to placement of the micro cilantro flowers in a wild mushroom quinoa salad with rainbow quinoa, mushrooms, huacatay sponge cake and aerated mushroom sauce.

Wanted: a restaurant perfect for dinner for two. It could be a first date, blind even. Or a night out without the kids. Or an evening spent taking a friendship or love affair to another level over a marquee chef's tasting menu. We've all been in that tight spot, casting about for the right restaurant to suit the anticipated evening. Acabar Acabar (the former Dar Maghreb) could be the most romantic restaurant in L.A., a sleek fantasy of Morocco complete with intricately carved bar and lounge.

This is the first vintage for Jack Hammer Wine Co., and they've come out with a terrific Pinot Noir for the price. The grapes come from all three Central Coast counties - Monterey, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara - and the juice sees some aging in old French oak barriques . The result is a delightful Pinot Noir with bright fruit flavors, gentle spice and round, smooth tannins. It goes down very easy and marries with all sorts of dishes. Drink it with hors d'oeuvres and vegetable dishes, with grilled salmon or duck breast.
