The City Council unanimously approved the transformation of the former Sepulveda Boulevard nightclub Ichabod Crane's, which went out of business recently, into what is billed as a family-oriented King's Hawaiian Bakery and Restaurant. The approval came with limitations on hours of operations and traffic intended to mitigate the operation's impact on the neighborhood of single-family homes south of Sepulveda.

SAN FRANCISCO - Its decaying architecture, fluorescent lighting and kitchen prep sink wedged next to a toilet have served as fodder for a ribbing by comedian Conan O'Brien . Its 3 a.m. closing time made it a favorite for late-night club hoppers But most of all, the Sam Wo Restaurant in the heart of Chinatown was a haven for unassuming regulars and curious tourists - who for decades streamed through the cramped kitchen and up a narrow staircase...

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.

Cardiff Giant, the hospitality group behind The Hudson and The Churchill, has been very busy of late. The Daily Dish just got word that the group is set to take over the former Voyeur Nightclub  space at 7969 Santa Monica Ave. and will renovate and re-open it as a new nightclub concept in January of 2013. This comes after rumors circulated on the web that NYC's The Box was going to take the space. In addition Cardiff Giant has announced plans to open an as-of-yet un-named restaurant in downtown L.A. in the old Heinz loading dock at 712 S. Santa Fe after the New Year.

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.

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.

TRAVEL

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.
