Authorities with pickaxes, shovels and cadaver dogs dug through the floor and walls of a popular Lomita restaurant, trying to solve a 16-month-old mystery surrounding the disappearance of the cafe owner's wife. "At this point we believe she is buried beneath the restaurant," said Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore. "We are excavating parts of the restaurant. We expect to be there for some time. " The excavation at the Thyme Contemporary Cafe in Lomita is the latest in a series of twists in the case that included a police pursuit last week that ended when the cafe's owner, David Viens, jumped from a cliff in Rancho Palos Verdes.

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.

The slender glass of sherry blushes a reddish brown and tastes of leather and summer cherries. Musky-sweet and light on the palate, the Spanish fortified wine is the unifying force behind the bar program at Bow & Truss, North Hollywood's new Latin restaurant from Morgan Margolis and Knitting Factory Entertainment. On a recent Monday afternoon, Margolis gathered with mixologists Marcos Tello and Aidan Demarest of the bar consulting firm Tello/Demarest Liquid Assets to talk about the drinks and sample a few. The hit of the day is a cocktail called the Horse Thief Old-Fashioned, which is made with Scotch, Pedro Ximenez Sherry and absinthe: a trifecta of clamorous flavors that hit all the right notes when combined over ice and garnished with a twist of fresh orange.

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.

Sunday is a slow night for the Beijing Hooters girls. Jiang Xin -- or Summer, as her name tag reads -- takes the opportunity to teach the new hires one of their dance routines. With smoky dark eyes and her all-black trainer uniform, 24-year-old Jiang is sexy, smoldering and standoffish until she smiles. This she does when she gently admonishes the girls to loosen up, laugh, and stop tugging at the bottoms of their shorts. Hooters in Beijing is much like its American counterpart.
