Police Thursday night were seeking a former restaurant worker for questioning in the grisly slaying of five employees in a Wendy's restaurant in Queens. The workers--two more were wounded--were systematically shot execution-style by two gunmen who apparently used inside information in robbing the Wendy's late Wednesday. They failed to get $20,000 left in two locked safes in the basement, sources said.

The sandwich writers at Manhattan's Carnegie Deli have been working overtime during the convention. When customers order a Bill Clinton sandwich, they receive corned beef on white bread with mayonnaise. What does the governor of Arkansas know about how to eat New York corned beef, the deli's sandwich scribes ask. The Jerry Brown sandwich consists of ham and bologna on rye with mustard--in honor of a big ham who is full of bologna, the deli's writers say.

Harley Cafe Revs Up: Let's compare Apples and Oranges--specifically, hot spots that the Big Apple has and Orange County lacks. New York has a Planet Hollywood and a Hard Rock Cafe. So does Orange County. But what about a Harley-Davidson Cafe? One is planned for mid-town Manhattan, so might there be a Harley in Orange County's future? "We're going to move slowly on this," Harley spokesman Tom Parsons said. Mark Packer, the company's partner in the New York project, "is a proven restaurateur, . .

You wanna slice of New York? Something more than just pastrami on rye, and maybe even a little food for thought? Come on down to the Argo. The Argo coffee shop, that is. Corner of 90th and Broadway, on Manhattan's Upper West Side. A bit of common ground in the Big Apple, where Greek waiters shout the orders and there's usually an extra seat at the counter. The kind of place where customers speak their minds--whether you ask them to or not.

Michael McCarty is not a modest man. "We were a pioneer, there's no question about it. I clearly think that in 1979, Michael's restaurant defined what restaurants were," he said as he surveyed his brand new restaurant last month in New York. Even before he opened Michael's in Santa Monica (at the ripe old age of 24), humility was not exactly his strong suit. "We're doing something different here," he said as he prepared his menu in 1979. "My specials are going to blow your socks off."

Casa del Teriyaki. Casa de Kawasaki. Nothing, not the signs of Cuban-Chinese restaurants in New York City or Tex-Mex bistros in Paris, prepares you for the linguistic exuberance of Los Angeles. Alas, Casa del Teriyaki (located at the Beverly-Catalina Car Wash) vanished several years ago, as have Casa de Kawasaki (in Irvine), Casa de Transmissions and Parts (in Inglewood) and Casa de Pets (Studio City). But the others remain, symbols of a city where no culture remains impervious to another.
