Souplantation is no stranger to hot water, having survived overexpansion of its soup-and-salad restaurants and under-expansion of the economy. But the newly public San Diego-based company, known formally as Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp., is betting that those wilted salad days are over. Garden Fresh went to market on May 17, selling 1.5 million shares of stock over the counter for $9 per share, using the Nasdaq ticker symbol LTUS (the ticker symbol SALD was already taken).

The latest victim, an adult, ate at the restaurant March 23, said Howard Sutter, a spokesman for the Orange County Health Care Agency. Though the person developed symptoms, he said, no hospitalization was required.

Two San Diego-based restaurant chains have shunned traditional main courses--including beef and fish--in favor of meals consisting of home-style soups, unlimited salad bars and health-conscious desserts. Another flaky fad from Southern California? Maybe. But restaurant industry analysts believe that American diners are ready for meals without main entrees. "It could be the next generation of fast food," according to Joan Lang, executive editor of New York-based Restaurant Business magazine.

About a year ago--when the advertising industry in Los Angeles was beginning to free fall--Rob Frankel had five employees, a fat lease expiring on his Van Nuys office space and a baseball-size knot in his stomach. Today, working out of his Encino home, Frankel's only paid employee is himself. And the knot in his stomach is gone. "You have no idea what kind of waste goes on at an agency," said Frankel, whose unpaid associates at Frankel & Anderson are two collies and a German shepherd.
