DEAR SOS: I am a former Southern California resident now living in Northern California. I really miss Clearman's Northwoods Inn restaurants. I know quite a few years back you published the recipe for their red cabbage salad. JUDITH CHENEY Via e-mail DEAR JUDITH: We first ran this recipe, developed by the Times Test Kitchen, in 1990. It's based on the salad from the Clearman's restaurant chain. Red Cabbage Salad Active Work Time and Total Preparation Time: 15 minutes, plus 2 hours standing 1/2 head red cabbage, cored 1/2 cup oil 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 3 tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons salt, or more to taste 1 teaspoon seasoned salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1/4 teaspoon onion powder Shred the cabbage so it is irregular, with some fine and some coarse shreds, and place in a large nonaluminum bowl.

It didn't take long for the Latino restaurant barker - the guys who stand on the sidewalk trying to lure in the indecisive and hungry - to pounce: " Ciao, bellas ," he said, using the Spanish plural of the Italian noun. "Come in and eat," he added, motioning with a sweep of his arm toward the open door.

We know it's noisy out there in the restaurant world. Customers' complaints are growing, critics are including noise commentary in their reviews, and restaurateurs, to some extent, are trying to figure out ways to modify the acoustic mayhem. But just how noisy is it? With a decidedly unscientific approach, all it took was a sound meter app (deciBel Pro) and visits to a dozen restaurants and bars across Los Angeles to find out. In many cases, we're all dining with the noise equivalent of a lawn mower running next to us: That's 90 decibels.
