John Mosca, proprietor of a two-room roadhouse near New Orleans famed for its Italian-style garlicky shrimp, oysters, chicken and marinated crab dishes, has died. He was 86. Mosca died Wednesday at his home in suburban Harahan, said his daughter, Lisa Mosca. He had prostate cancer. His parents, Provino and Lisa Mosca, founded Mosca's restaurant in 1946 in the community of Avondale, about half an hour from downtown New Orleans on the west bank of the Mississippi River. They served platters heaped with food rather than individual plates.

Shrimpers in the southern United States asked the Bush administration to slap duties on shrimp shipments from China, Vietnam, Ecuador, Brazil, India and Thailand to stem cheap imports of the shellfish. The Southern Shrimp Alliance sent petitions to the Commerce Department and the International Trade Commission asking that conditions of fair trade be restored by imposing anti-dumping duties on the shrimp imports from the six countries.

Dear SOS: I would love the recipe for "drunken shrimp" from the Gumbo Pot at the Farmers Market on 3rd Street. They always warn you that "it's the hottest thing on the menu" and I agree! Patti Astor Hollywood Dear Patti: Gumbo Pot owner Charles Myers and chef Clinton Thompson sent us the recipe. The spicy and flavorful beer broth makes a delicious sauce for shrimp. Serve this over rice or on its own with a crusty loaf of bread. Drunken shrimp Total time: 30 minutes Servings: 4 to 6 3 (12-ounce)

There were so many attorneys assembled for the 26th annual Blackstone Ball at the Sheraton Harbor Island Hotel on Saturday that the cocktail-hour catering contract specified 11,000 large shrimp to be served from carved-ice clam shells displayed on five separate buffets. That's a lot of shrimp, but, then, there were a lot of lawyers at "Night at the Copa."

There are two Uncle Darrow's. The little Uncle Darrow's is a tiny dive in the middle of an obscure residential stretch of Venice Boulevard. Its parking lot boasts space for two whole cars. The big Uncle Darrow's, which opened in December, is in a newly built and much larger space just north of the corner of Lincoln and Washington boulevards, where it's bringing Louisiana food to street-level Marina del Rey.

  It's been either muggy and sticky hot, or now just plain hot, and a girl gets thirsty. Come early evening, I'm ready for an apéritif, and this Spanish rosé has become a favorite. Dry and crisp, the Muga rosado carries a scent of wild strawberries and tastes a bit like that too. Graceful and nuanced, this rosé is still gutsy enough to pair with bold flavors. I've enjoyed it with gazpacho, shrimp in achiote sauce and grilled quail. It's great with guacamole and corn or tortilla soup too. Just what you want in a basic summer wine: versatility.
