The first time I was backstage at the Century Plaza Hotel, I led a small but sturdy, well-chosen band through a bland-looking side door, down a concrete corridor and finally into a covey of waiters waiting to serve dessert. Those following me were Ronald and Nancy Reagan, the newly elected governor of California and the First Lady. It was the night of the Governor's Ball at the new hotel.

Hotel Bel-Air There are few things more civilized than lunch at The Restaurant at this idyllic property. And even when it's chilly outside, the patio is comfy thanks to a heated floor. The crab and cognac bisque is outrageously good. And there's plenty of lighter fare on the "Spa" menu. * Bisque, $16. 701 Stone Canyon Road, Bel-Air; (310) 472-1211. Zov's Bistro The menu at this recently made-over modern bistro, which takes its name from chef-proprietor Zov Karamardian, spans the Mediterranean.

The ladies who lunch were missing Monday from their usual banquettes at the Bistro Garden and at Jimmy's. Instead, they filled tables in Merv Griffin's backyard, glittering in the pastoral setting with more diamonds and designer clothes than a Rodeo Drive boutique. Dozens of famous names and faces turned out--many of them managing to look good even in direct sunlight, away from the softly lit environs they usually glide through. The large turnout was "because we all love Eva.

Visit the restaurant at nearly any small airport and you'll probably see someone from the "$100 Hamburger Club." These part-time pilots are a staple in Southern California, proof that when you're a pilot the state just isn't that big. They think nothing of flying 150 miles for a killer malt or a tasty buffalo burger. Members of this exclusive group spend about $100 round trip for lunch--the cost of fuel, airplane maintenance and a hamburger with fries.

Everyone goes to the Grill on the Alley for a reason. And it isn't to eat. Last Wednesday, Michael Caine arrived precisely at 1 p.m. He made his way to a choice side booth, silently nodding to a few of the dozens of talent agents, managers and lawyers who hold court at the Beverly Hills restaurant (no one at the Grill interrupts anyone -- they're all too important). He slid into the green vinyl booth, ordered a quick two-course meal and exited as silently as he came in.

The Princess of Wales came to lunch Monday in a white wool dress and a confident smile. "Please say that I was relaxed and in high spirits . . .," said Diana, a twinkle leading to the punch line. "And that I was remarkably stable."

Sarah Sternau can barely remember the last time she enjoyed a leisurely lunch at a restaurant. She guesses it was almost three months ago. The 24-year-old online music editor is not alone. The so-called lunch hour is fantasy for the majority of busy workers who scarf down their food while they plow through work, according to a 1999 survey by OfficeTeam, a staffing firm in Menlo Park, Calif.
