Presto change-o; now you see it, now you don't. If you're looking for an undiscovered, secluded escape hidden from view yet minutes from the bustling center of San Marcos and its restaurants, bars and entertainment, Lake San Marcos is for you. My husband hurt his back last month and wanted a slow-paced weekend to relax. We came to the right place: Leisure is king in this mellow enclave tucked away on a lake in a quiet residential neighborhood in northern San Diego County. Here, paddle boats rule the lake, and golf is the preferred "action" sport.

Once upon a visit to Los Angeles, Brendan Behan, the late Irish playwright who was as renowned for his marathon tippling as he was for his stagecraft, patronized an estimated 30 restaurants and barrooms during a memorable three-hour spree. Behan consumed a single drink in every one of the establishments, which were all on the same lively thoroughfare.

How could Christopher Reynolds leave Claire's on Cedros out of his article on San Diego's North County ["More Than Just a Pretty Place," Aug. 19]? I love that restaurant with its eco-friendly construction, its attention to patrons with food allergies, its pet-friendly back patio and its fab food. The article didn't mention how easy it is to get to a lot of these attractions he listed. With the Coaster (coastal rail), the Sprinter (inland rail) and the buses, you don't need a car. Lisa Martinez San Pedro :: Reynolds missed a fabulous place in Escondido that we just discovered: Deer Park Winery & Auto Museum (just off Interstate 15)

Lawry's Red meat rules at this beloved eatery dating to 1938. And now you can enjoy Lawry's like the football players do. (Rose Bowl-bound players have a tradition of coming here before the big game.) The "beef bowl" cut is a 24-ounce, bone-in cut of prime rib. It comes with the signature spinning bowl salad (better than any dinner show), mashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. * Beef bowl cut $41. 100 N. La Cienega Blvd., Beverly Hills, (310) 652-2827.

At the corner of Wilshire and La Cienega boulevards, a green sign points north to "Restaurant Row," a stretch of grand eateries such as Lawry's the Prime Rib that have made La Cienega a culinary magnet since the late 1930s. Within the last year, the boulevard has seen the arrival of scene-stealing celebrity chef establishments, but with new bars, music venues, and design and fashion boutiques, the district has become a destination for much more than just a great meal. Restaurant Row 2.0 The splashy SLS Hotel is home to Spanish chef José Andrés' the Bazaar, a collection of eating spaces featuring traditional and contemporary tapas , inventive cocktails and decadent pastries.

A restaurant row spotlighting Oxnard's popular Mexican eateries, ordinances to punish neglectful landlords and citywide after-school programs were a few of the plans discussed Tuesday during the Oxnard City Council's third attempt to hold its annual retreat. The session, held at the South Oxnard Center, was televised in response to complaints by Mayor Manuel Lopez that previous retreats allowed the City Council to make major decisions away from the public eye.

Big changes have hit Little Osaka, the iconic Japanese neighborhood that runs along Sawtelle Boulevard in West L.A. Take, for example, Plan Check Kitchen & Bar. The 4-week-old restaurant serving gourmet burgers, American comfort food and curated cocktails is Sawtelle's first gastropub. The street has for decades been a Japanese restaurant row: sushi, curry, yakitori, Franco-Japanese small plates, izakaya fare and land-of-the-rising-sun snacks. In the days just before opening, Plan Check owner Terry Heller wondered half-jokingly, "Do you think I'm crazy not to open a sushi place here?"

Until Petros in Manhattan Beach blew onto the scene a few years ago, Greek restaurants in L.A. tended to be more in the folkloric vein, places like Taverna Tony in Malibu or Papa Cristos in L.A., where you could shop for Greek groceries and stay for an inexpensive dinner at communal tables. Now here comes something entirely different ? big, brash, glamorous Xandros on La Cienega's restaurant row. Moving into the old Tony Roma's, Xandros (short for Alexander the Great) fills the 7,500-square-foot space with a sleek lounge washed in blue light, a dining room with pale yellow orchids on the tables and beyond that, a spacious outdoor terrace protected from the wind and the traffic on La Cienega by a glass screen.

Less than two weeks ago, a new restaurant opened in Los Feliz named Tangier Korean BBQ of Tokyo. Even in L.A. -- a city that loves the Korean barbecue taco -- a name like that had people scratching their heads. Was it a fusion restaurant, and if so, would we be introduced to Moroccan sushi? Not so much. The name, it turns out, is as weirdly playful as the restaurant itself. Located in the old Tangier bar space along Hillhurst's restaurant row, Tangier is owned by a Korean man named Choongryang Roh who was born in Japan.

The first gunshot drew me racing to the window. The second sent me ducking to the floor. A crime scene was unfolding below my second-floor apartment, and it took a few moments to make sense of its moving parts: the two burly men sprinting toward a taxi; the red-and-white cab trying to maneuver out of traffic; a uniformed bank guard pointing his revolver; the second pop of gunfire. No one was hurt. But the taxi, trapped in lunch-hour traffic, was surrounded as the guard and two police officers approached slowly on foot, guns drawn.

Get ready for a French invasion this summer. Of the many bistros and brasseries slated to open in the coming months, Le Saint Amour in Culver City leads the charge. Owners Florence and Bruno Herve-Commereuc used to have that adorable little Angelique Cafe in the Fashion District downtown where you could pop in (provided the parking gods were with you) at lunch for some house-made charcuterie and a salad, followed by a slice of tart and coffee. Very civilized. (They sold the cafe in 2006.

He is planning to build a five-story, 127-room hotel--one of the first of a planned chain of Hampton Inns--on the site of a now-closed Victoria Station, which was one of eight restaurants in West Covina's Restaurant Row adjacent to the San Bernardino (10) Freeway.

Orris The trick at this stylish small-plate spot is narrowing your choices from a menu brimming with good ones. The delicate crab and cucumber salad in a creamy ginger dressing is a must, as is the light, crisp shrimp tempura served with curry dipping sauce and sea salt. Our best advice: Go with a food-loving friend or two and order a bunch of dishes. Just remember what mom said about sharing. * Crab salad, $9; shrimp tempura, $9. 2006 Sawtelle Blvd., West L.A.
