When Campanile recently began a new Monday night series of family-style dinners, I called a couple of friends and signed up for the first one: bouillabaisse. Family-style means everyone at the table eats the same menu. It's like eating at home--except you're in a restaurant and Mark Peel and Nancy Silverton are much better cooks than most of us. For this first series of dinners, they've wisely chosen festive and elaborate dishes few amateur chefs would have the time or moxie to take on at home.

After closing briefly to remodel, Celestino Drago (Drago, Il Pastaio, Celestino) has essentially opened a new restaurant in the space where L'Arancino, his West Hollywood Sicilian, used to be. Sicilian cuisine just didn't go over there--and it's a real shame. There's a silver lining in that cloud, though, because his new concept, an Italian steakhouse called Celestino, is smart and appealing.

Hannah and Jeff Kirschner eat at Wilshire, the relaxed yet sophisticated restaurant in Santa Monica, at least once a week. It's hard to say which they love more--the food or the chef. The food is earthy and honest--wood-grilled steaks, tangerine-and-chili-spiked mussels, a dramatic deep-fried whole Thai snapper. The chef is their youngest son, Andrew.

Who doesn't love a cucumber? Picklers, slicers, green or yellow, smooth or bumpy, thin- or thick-skinned, chubby Kirbys, little cornichons, English, Japanese, Persian. Good thing then that with the impending heat comes cucumber season. They peak with the tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and those other cucurbits, squashes and melons, but among all these, cucumbers are the most like Johnny Depp -- very, very cool. With their refreshing herbaceous flavor and their snappy crunch, cucumbers are exactly what we want to eat right now -- still (they've been cultivated for more than 3,000 years)

For better or worse, here's my definition of a dinner party: A group of people gathered together to eat . . . and a flaw. I have given countless dinner parties, privately and as part of a catering crew, and even, ever so briefly, as a catering company of one.

Caffe Piemonte was born of shipboard romance. Owners Amy and Luigi Ravetto met aboard a cruise liner. She was a passenger; he was one of the chefs. They got married and started a restaurant. A storybook ending--about a picture-perfect restaurant--would be pretty, and Caffe Piemonte is a big success, full even on weeknights every time I've visited, noisy and buzzing with obviously happy diners. But what is wrong with this picture? Well, nothing, unless you think about price or attitude.

Come summer, the idea of eating at the beach sounds enormously seductive. I start dreaming about the little seafood restaurants in the old Barceloneta neighborhood of Barcelona, where you can gorge on fresh seafood with your toes practically curled in the sand, then, after lunch, wander off a few feet for a nap by the shore.
