Anyone who knows Hollywood knows Musso & Frank, where the stars of the motion picture industry's Golden Age often dined. Everyone came to Musso's: Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe. Even as the world outside its doors changed with the times, Musso's, which opened in 1919, embraced its old charms: steaks, chops and martinis served by waiters in red jackets to patrons in red leather booths. No one messed with the Musso mystique, because in a town where it's sometimes hard to tell the difference, this was the real deal.

A man who bought a Pioneer Take Out in Sunland just six weeks ago was shot and critically wounded in his restaurant during what may have been a botched robbery, Los Angeles police said Friday. Louis Lim, 35, of Baldwin Park was listed in critical condition at Holy Cross Hospital in Mission Hills. Lim was shot once in the chest about 3:15 p.m. Thursday after a man entered the office of the restaurant at 8668 Foothill Blvd., Detective Jim Vojtecky said Friday.

The Century, a luxury condominium tower in Century City, will soon house a restaurant operated by high-profile Los Angeles chef David Myers. His yet-to-be-named restaurant will be open to the public and also cater private meals and events for residents of the 41-story tower such as Candy Spelling, who owns the top two floors. The ground-floor restaurant will have a separate driveway and entrance from the residences, said Jeff Blau, president of the Related Cos., the developer of the tower on Avenue of the Stars.

A Woodland Hills restaurant that was the target of an investigation into alleged overcrowding and excessive drinking has corrected the problem, Los Angeles city prosecutors said Friday. Operators of the Red Onion, 6424 Canoga Ave., have begun restricting entry to their bar and limiting drink sales, officials said. In addition, a uniformed guard has been hired to patrol the restaurant parking lot, prosecutors said.

I was very disappointed to read Horace Sutton's comments regarding the quite outstanding restaurant and hotel, L'Esperance, near Vezelay, France (Nov. 15). He based his negative comments not on his own firsthand experience but on second- or perhaps even third-hand hearsay involving someone he didn't even know, who regrettably had a disagreeable experience there. It is too bad that Sutton did not do himself the favor of judging L'Esperance for himself. Having traveled, lived and dined in France for 18 years, I can say without hesitation that my experience one month ago at L'Esperance, both as restaurant and hotel, was one of the most excellent and perfect I have ever had.

McDonald's, that carnivore's haven of beefy Big Macs and chicken McNuggets, is going vegetarian. The fast food giant will open its first non-meat restaurant next year in India, in the Sikh holy city of Amritsar. The branch, to be located by the much-visited Golden Temple, will serve herbivore options tailored to the country's cultural tastes, according to AFP . Much of the Indian population avoids certain types of meat. Hindus consider cows sacred and don't eat beef, while Muslims avoid pork.

Temecula is just 86 miles from downtown L.A. That's about an hour and a half drive when the traffic gods are with you. And yet the fun-loving, party-happy wine region is hardly ever at the top of avid wine buffs' bucket list. But now, with the opening of Farm House Kitchen, it can boast a serious wine restaurant to sweeten the wine region's appeal.  Part of the golf resort Temecula Creek Inn , the new restaurant cost about $2.5 million to renovate. That's a serious investment and Farm House Kitchen will be doing the heavy lifting, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus everyone's favorite, weekend brunch.

I have an important question about S. Irene Virbila's review of Rock in Marina del Rey ("A Rocky Start," Nov. 14): Are we talking about the same restaurant? I have been eating Hans Rockenwagner's food for the last 15 years, and never has it been "awful," "soggy," "unappetizing" or "tasteless." On the contrary, I have always been impressed with his culinary creations. The food at Rock is no exception. Rock is a respite from all the been-there-done-that French bistros and Italian trattorias that seem to occupy every corner of this city.
