On a sunny afternoon last spring, I stood on Cabo da Roca, Portugal, the westernmost point in continental Europe. Looking at the vast Atlantic horizon, it was impossible not to feel the pull of faraway places, the allure of exploration. A thousand miles behind me was Italy, my homeland--and that of Christopher Columbus. Ahead, almost directly across the ocean, was my adopted home, Massachusetts, the shore at the end of the Pilgrims' journeys.

Some people have trouble with washing dishes; others do not. Take a careful look at these two groups of people. Their work patterns show some subtle differences. Because food preparation is the largest work process in most homes, these seemingly insignificant details are greatly magnified. One woman stopped to chat at a recent workshop. "I can't figure out why I have a problem. I live by myself. I am divorced and my four children are raised. For 20 years, my children washed the dishes.

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.

July 1, 1993 | MAX JACOBSON, Max Jacobson is a free-lance writer who reviews restaurants weekly for The Times Orange County Edition.
Little Saigon, the cluster of Vietnamese shops in Westminster and Garden Grove, is properly regarded as a valuable cultural resource for our community. Most of my friends, though, look at it as the place for cheap, delicious food. Last week I visited two of the more unusual restaurants there, and as usual, I got a lot more than I bargained for.
