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.

Lightning . . . camera . . . action! Even the weather hyped it up Friday night at the opening here of the restaurant Planet Hollywood.

While Mario Tamayo (co-founder of Cha Cha Cha and proprietor of Cafe Mambo) is readying the Atlas Bar & Grill in the Wilshire District's Wiltern building, his estranged partner, Toribio Prado, has a project in the works, too: a Chinese/Latino hybrid sort of place in Hollywood, to be called Chino Latino. Prado currently runs Cha Cha Cha and serves as consulting chef at the popular new El Mocambo, an upscale Cuban-style establishment in West Hollywood.

Gustav Anders, which started life as a sort of new-style continental-Swedish restaurant and evolved into a first-rate exponent of contemporary European-derived California cooking, put La Jolla on the gastronomic map. Now it's off that map. Dec. 11 was the establishment's last day in its attractive bungalow-style home near the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.

Larrieu Smith--knees creaking, muscles aching, body slightly slumped--had to smile. She must have looked even worse than she felt. "I said, 'Yes, I'm OK. This is just what happens when you get a little older .' " Larrieu Smith recalls with a laugh. Older is a relative term, of course.
