Larry Cano and Fred Le Franc of Vision Restaurants Inc. recently instituted what they term "Mexican food at old-time prices" at their Manana and Salud restaurants. They've cut entree prices as much as 50%. Combination plates now range from $2.95 (for a one-entree selection of taco, enchilada, chili relleno, burrito, tostado, taquitos or tamale) to $4.95 (three selections). All come with Mexican rice and refried beans. Manana restaurants are located at 17171 Brookhurst St.

You have no more excuses for eating junk food while traveling. At the nation's busiest airports, 76% of restaurants offer at least one healthy entree, according to a survey by a panel of doctors. That's a big improvement from 2001, when only 57% of airports offered at least one healthy dish. In a ranking of 18 airports by the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Denver International Airport came out on top, with 86% of its restaurants offering healthy dishes such as wraps, barley burgers, vegetable soup, Roma tomato paninis and spinach salads.

I was relieved to find in "The Birth of a Restaurant" (by Karen Stabiner, Feb. 14) an explanation for my disappointing meal at Trattoria Angeli. I ordered the ravioli special entree and received 10 small, thin ravioli. Thinking this must have been an appetizer portion, I sent it back only to be told this was indeed an entree. But now, from reading this article, I understand their position: They need to gross $1.8 million annually to break even. Yes, the ravioli was delicious, but I'll be returning to the original Angeli where the food isn't compromised by an extravagant investment, and the diner doesn't go home hungry.

After six weeks of sweat and tears, mishaps and triumphs in the kitchen, Dean McDermott was announced the winner of "Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-off," on Sunday night's finale episode. Woo hoo, "Daddy D!" He was clearly the favorite to win from the start, having been the only one with any culinary know-how. Let's take a look at how he beat fellow competitor Carnie Wilson in the finale. It was home cook Wilson on one side of the kitchen and budding chef McDermott in the other.

I am writing to you with regard to "Grill Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" (April 13). I am an expatriate Australian of nine years. On the one hand, I found this article, on the whole, very interesting and informative. On the other hand, I was enraged by the first paragraph. The author, Margo Pfeiff, obviously had no eye for fine dining back in the 1970s. Sydney then was more culinary aware, with fine dining and extensive ethnic cuisine, than Los Angeles was. Sydney was, and still is, a cosmopolitan city, with a vast array of ethnic and seafood restaurants.

I want to thank Jerry Hulse for his article on "Lanai" (Oct. 2). I spent the summer of 1964 on the island harvesting for Dole. My brother and I worked the 2 to 11 p.m. shift because of the additional earning potential, which was $1.46 an hour versus $1.41 an hour on the day shift. While wages have no doubt increased since then, it sounds like nothing else has changed. The finest meals on the island were in the field. Each harvest crew member would carry an aluminum cow-cow can that has the appearance of a small, cylindrical double broiler about the size of a standard lunch box. The bottom section of the cow-cow contained warm rice.

I had been a faithful customer of L'Orangerie for 20 years ("Toque of the Town," by S. Irene Virbila, Sept. 24). My wife and I loved that restaurant and always looked forward to dining there. When we went to L'Orangerie a couple of months ago, it was overcrowded; people were stuffed around tables that had been placed too close to each other. The smell of the overhanging flowers was overpowering. The service was swift, so much so that we felt we were at a fast-food restaurant. My entree consisted of five overly salted scallops topped by cardboard-like truffles and surrounded by a bed of intensely bitter greens.

In 2008, single entrees with two standard sides have fallen out of favor along with Chinese-manufactured pet food and Sen. Larry Craig. As restaurants far and wide catch the tasting bug, the future promises to be all about small-bite delight. Here are our favorites.

Restaurant and bar patrons cheaped out last year, swapping expensive bottles of wine for more affordable single glasses, ditching entrees for appetizers and sides and even passing on dessert. Though consumer spending is ticking up , the unstable economy and high food prices have kept diners wary of hefty checks. Hence the 2.8% boom in appetizer and side orders last year, compared to a 1.5% slide in demand for entrees, according to GuestMetrics, which tracks hospitality industry data . The average starter dish - oysters, chicken wings and empanadas are increasingly popular - costs $5.57.

IHOP has a Country Fried Steak & Eggs combo menu item with 3,720 milligrams of sodium. Johnny Rockets' Bacon Cheddar Double burger has 50 grams of saturated fat. The Bistro Shrimp Pasta from the Cheesecake Factory has 3,120 calories. Each one is likely lip-smackingly delicious. But they're also far over the doctor-recommended limits of 2,000 calories, 20 grams of saturated fat and 1,500 milligrams of sodium a day. This week, the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest, is calling out such intense meals - and the chains that produce them - as promoters of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

The gig: Doug Belgrad is president of Columbia Pictures, the primary film label for Culver City-based entertainment giant Sony Pictures and the home of such movies as "Spider-Man," "Grown Ups" and "Moneyball. " The 22-year studio veteran's job is a mix of creative and business — giving notes on scripts, helping run big productions such as this summer's "Men in Black 3" and setting movie budgets and stars' salaries. Reputation for numbers: Belgrad joined Columbia's executive training program in 1989 after two years following media stocks as a Wall Street analyst.

Almost every day, my in box fattens with e-mails from America's freelance writers -- adding their voices to those I quoted a couple of weeks ago about the devastating downturn in the writing market. In bemoaning the need for speed, the flight from quality and the persistent decrease in pay, it turns out writers have a lot in common with photographers. And graphic artists. And architects. And musicians. And, well, with just about anyone who sees his creative endeavors being commodified or who is exposed to low-cost foreign competition via the Internet.

At first glance, it looks like a roast turkey on steroids. Slice into it and there's layer after layer of meats and stuffings. It's a glorious monster of a roast, a guaranteed showstopper at any holiday dinner. Forget Dickens' prized turkey -- this bird is big enough to crush Tiny Tim. Just make sure you've reinforced the dining room table before you set it out. I'm talking about turducken. Although traditional roasts, hams and turkeys bring a nice Norman Rockwell-esque feel to the holiday table, they can get to be a bit . . . traditional.

Scallops are such cute things. Bite-size and symmetrical, mild and sweet, velvety and dense. Granted, they're expensive. But for an occasional treat, a quick-fix company entree or a family occasion, scallops are worth having to eat less luxuriously the other six nights of the week. According to "The California Seafood Cookbook" (Aris Books: $12.95), the scallop is the only free-swimming mollusk.

The weather is unpredictable but lately seems to be occasionally cooperating and behaving more like fall. On nights like that, consider celebrating the season by heading to Marché Moderne for Florent Marneau's choucroûte moderne menu, $29 for two courses every night through the end of November. No one has to twist my arm when it comes to choucroûte . It's the famous Alsatian dish of sauerkraut with assorted meats and sausages to be eaten with a spunky mustard and vast quantities of crisp, minerally Riesling or Pinto Gris from Alsace.

Directors Jennifer Grausman and Mark Becker's memorable documentary "Pressure Cooker" manages to be moving, inspirational and tremendously real without ever turning manipulative or preachy. It provides an absorbing, highly engaging look at a year in the life of a Philadelphia high school culinary arts class and its nascent chefs as they prepare for a life-changing scholarship competition.
