After the ubiquitous Wolfgang Puck, his good friend Nobu Matsuhisa may be Los Angeles' most recognized / best-known chef. The tall Japanese-born chef, who arrived in L.A. in the 1980s after working for a time in Peru, has appeared more on the E! Channel and in trendy magazines than on cable's Food Network or Gourmet. He's appeared in a Gap ad and in one for golf clubs.

Before the advent of the now ubiquitous fast-food outlets, before Southern California's fabled Schaber's and Clifton's cafeterias, there were the Boos Brothers. From humble beginnings, Horace Boos and his three siblings opened one of Los Angeles' first cafeterias in 1906 with unconventional methods and consistent success that inspired subsequent generations of restaurant entrepreneurs.

As Frank Holoman recalls the encounter, no one in his restaurant had ever seen anything quite like it. Jesse Jackson was ensconced at a window table in Holoman's Boulevard Cafe, but the wave of admirers, glad-handers and star-struck fans who normally descend on the civil rights leader kept their distance. The good reverend was in the clutches of the irrepressible Maggie Hathaway, a formidable former NAACP official who has elevated taking public figures to task to an art form.

The fast-growing Corner Bakery chain will bring its collection of baguettes and other baked goods to the San Fernando Valley on Nov. 12, when it opens at The Commons in Calabasas. It will be the chain's first California restaurant outside of Orange County. Launched in Chicago in 1991, the chain, known for its fresh-baked items and moderate prices, arrived on the West Coast in November 1997 when it opened adjacent to Maggiano's restaurant in the South Coast Plaza.

A Mexican restaurant and bar in San Fernando was heavily damaged by a fire that took 75 firefighters more than two hours to extinguish, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Jim Wells. "The fire was well involved when the firefighters got there, and there were spaces we couldn't reach immediately," Wells said. "It was a deep-seated fire, and it was located in a lot of concealed spaces."
