When the legendary show-biz hot spot (and good French restaurant) called Ma Maison closed its doors two years ago, much of its clientele--especially the lunch bunch--eventually reassembled a block away at the newly opened Silvio's. Two months ago, as reported in this space, the latter's eponymous proprietor, Silvio De Mori, left the restaurant abruptly after a dispute with his partners.

SCENE: De Mori Restaurant, Beverly Hills. A cheery patio restaurant in the Rodeo Collection. Ivy curls around the trellis overhead and a fountain makes soothing sounds in the background. Owner Silvio de Mori, 55, with white-silver hair and eyes that crinkle up merrily, or wistfully, presides over the end of lunch with yours truly, MB, who is, for most intents and purposes, at this moment, an emotional wreck.

Bosc on His Own: Silvio de Mori has split with his longtime partner, chef Jean-Pierre Bosc. Bosc is in the process of buying out De Mori's interest in Mimosa, the French bistro on Beverly Boulevard in L.A., and Cafe des Artistes on McCadden Place in Hollywood. Bosc now cooks at Mimosa nightly (Oliver de Mori, Silvio's son, remains the maitre d' at Cafe des Artistes).

When Michel Richard closed his Bar Bistro at Citrus last year, I was heartsick. Where would I go for my fix of charcuterie, steak frites and daube de veau? With the arrival of Mimosa on Beverly Boulevard near Fairfax, I now have a new adresse. French chef and former Fennel alumnus Jean Pierre Bosc has left Lunaria in Century City to open this small, charming bistro with Tuscan-born restaurateur Silvio DeMori. The restaurant is painted the color of fresh-churned butter; banquettes line the walls.

"No Reservations. . . . No Dress Code. . . . No Tablecloths. . . . No Attitude." Those are the rules at Cafe des Artistes. The new Cafe des Artistes, that is. When Silvio De Mori and Jean-Pierre Bosc, the team behind the wildly successful French bistro Mimosa, took over the hip Hollywood hangout, they knew a good name when they heard one. So Cafe des Artistes it stayed.

Kazuto Matsusaka walked out of Zenzero in Santa Monica five months ago. Then he went back. Now he's realized it's true--you can't go home again. Although he's agreed to hang on for a little while longer, he's out of there come September. The Spago alumnus will take over the kitchen at the tchotchke-cluttered Cafe La Boheme in West Hollywood, where he plans to pare down the weird Asian-Continental menu. "The place is very different from Zenzero," Matsusaka says. "I'm going to have to adjust."

While sophisticated upscale restaurants (you know: the kind with $28 entrees and $50 Chardonnays) are languishing all over town, more and more informal, inexpensive restaurants are opening--and, for now at least, doing very well. Owners of the 8-month-old Daily Grill in Brentwood, for instance, report that they've been serving between 600 and 800 meals a day--in a 90-seat restaurant--and expect to take in roughly $3 million in receipts this year! They're so pleased with business, in fact, that they are now working on a second Daily Grill--in the new Beverly Connection complex.

Silvio De MORI is a consummate host. As maitre d' and partner at the French bistros Mimosa and Cafe des Artistes, he set the tone with his warm and ebullient personality. Now De Mori has opened his own place in Beverly Hills, De Mori, following the breakup of his partnership with Mimosa chef Jean Pierre Bosc. The Italian restaurateur has taken on the notoriously difficult space in the Rodeo Collection that once housed Reata, a flamboyant cowboy steakhouse that quickly went adios.

This would seem a bad time to open a business on Hill Street. Metro Rail has it all torn up, and even if people happen to hear about you, just to reach your door they have to run a narrow gantlet of panhandlers between the cyclone fencing and the walls. And yet Tuttopasta is packed with diners at lunch, to say nothing of the people waiting in a row of chairs for their takeout orders. Well, Tuttopasta is Silvio's latest restaurant, Silvio being Silvio DeMori, who has run some of the hottest Italian restaurants on the Westside.

Silvio DeMori, proprietor and namesake of the super-trendy Silvio's on Melrose near La Cienega, has left the restaurant. Pending possible legal tangles between DeMori and his partners, the restaurateur will not discuss the reasons for his sudden departure. "I just want people to know that I am no longer involved with the place in any way," he says. He has had offers from several other quarters, he adds, and is already seriously looking at another restaurant project.
