We were looking for a restaurant within walking distance of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco and found a great spot that even our local friends didn't know about. We all raved about its empanadas, roasted chicken and sangria. Its ceviche was the best I have had outside of Peru. The servers made us all feel like regulars. Call for reservations if more than two, because there are only a few large tables and a few seats at the lovely bar. La Fusion, 475 Pine St., (415) 781-0894, http://www.lafusion-sf.com D.

The mention of Prof. Arthur Upham Pope, an expert on Persian art, in the Fairmont Hotel story by Ruth Ryon (July 10), ushered in memories of my encounter with him during wartime New York City. He was then director of an Iranian institute, and offered me a position to teach advanced Armenian courses. I declined on the grounds that I lacked the scholarship for the thoroughness it would entail. Pope was a precursor in utilizing his position to create a climate for communication among the cultures in the Near East.

Monique Felicia Trepp, 33, found March 6 at the Fairmont Hotel, died of an acute combination of cocaine and alcohol, supervising deputy coroner Larry Esslinger said. Investigators believe that she may have been dead for as long as a year. Trepp's boyfriend, Stephen David Royds, 46, has been charged with possession and intent to sell drugs from the hotel room that he and Trepp shared.
