No matter how you cut it, the three-pound porterhouse-- not to mention a side of asparagus with stems "a nickel in diameter"--still has its fans. Morton's of Chicago, The Steakhouse has been filling dinner plates in Orange County since last week, lunch plates since Monday. It's just under $30 for that porterhouse, but nobody's complaining. The first Morton's opened 17 years ago, and South Coast Plaza Village marks its 30th location.

Talk to merchants at Crystal Court or South Coast Plaza Village and expect to hear the same word pop up over and over again. The word is quiet. "The mall overall is really quiet," one said. "It gets rather quiet here," another said. "It gets so quiet you can hear the crickets," yet a third said. In the mall business, quiet is bad. Most retailers depend upon a steady stream of customers to attract attention to their stores.

What a gloomy picture Bruce Horovitz has painted of South Coast Plaza Village (Aug. 14) as it "struggles" across the street from South Coast Plaza. As proprietor of the Good Earth Restaurant and the Good Earth Annex, both in South Coast Plaza Village, I can say that things have never been better. In the last three months, we've seen our business increase by 20%. And that includes our recently opened Annex, which occupies the former site of Meyerhof's restaurant, curiously characterized by Horovitz as "a popular outdoor cafe," but now closed.

South Coast Town Square has given up the battle over its name. The 50-store shopping center on Bristol Street in Santa Ana--just one block north of South Coast Plaza--will soon be known as just Town Square, thanks to a settlement agreement reached Friday with C.J. Segerstrom & Sons, the developer of South Coast Plaza. The brouhaha started in April, when South Coast Town Square changed its name from Bristol Town & Country Shopping Center.

Rodeo Drive and South Coast Plaza, according to a recent article in Women's Wear Daily, which compares and contrasts the two retail meccas. The two shopping areas have their differences, but WWD reports that "these two distinct shopping districts have more in common than even South Coast Plaza developer Henry Segerstrom imagined when he launched South Coast in 1967."

Doing so, we streamlined our lives into a striking simplicity: There we were, there were our wallets, and there were all those stores. Sleeping in a hotel across the street from mammoth South Coast Plaza, we flung ourselves into two days of browsing, and occasionally buying, in the most lavish and extensive consumer haven in what may be California's most lavishly extensive consumer community. You know, Orange County. We shopped. We ate. We shopped further.
