"The St. Moritz?" said my friend. "I thought that place closed years ago." How misinformed can one be. This charming garden restaurant, a chunk of Swiss/Continental Gemutlichkeit on a modest stretch of Ventura Boulevard, is nowhere near to being closed.

The Dodgers are close to signing Reed Johnson to a one-year deal to be their fourth outfielder, according to baseball sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal hadn't been completed. Johnson, 33, is a .282 hitter over seven major league seasons, the last two with the Chicago Cubs. He batted .255 with four home runs and 22 runs batted in last year in a season in which he sat out nearly two months because of a broken foot. Johnson can play all three outfield positions.

Prone on a narrow steel sled they go, head first, eyes only four inches above the ice, reaching speeds of up to 87 m.p.h. in what the riders rate as the most thrilling sled run in the world. Every day during the winter, hundreds of riders from teens to senior citizens take up the unique challenge and ride the cresta, three-quarters of a mile of solid ice first built 100 years ago in this resort.

Having spent many summers walking in Switzerland, I was delighted to see the articles on the Engadine ("Destination: Switzerland," June 30). Though well-known destinations were mentioned in the articles, there are innumerable trails, less frequented, that range from easy to challenging. One favorite, reached by postal bus from St. Moritz, climbs from Maloja Pass up to a tiny settlement overlooking three lakes, and winds through the wildflowers and by cascading streams back to lakeside villages in the valley.

I very much enjoyed reading on April 19 how "Switzerland's Spas Offer the Chance to Unwind," and, more specifically, that "a fine beginning to any health regimen is to take the Bernina Express from Geneva over the Alps to St. Moritz." Your readers' health regimen might be adversely affected by their frustration if they look for a Bernina Express in Geneva. No such train originates there. I do recommend, however, that they take the train to Brig (about two hours) and change to the Glacier Express.

Karajan's will was opened this week at Samaden, near St. Moritz, Switzerland, where he had a residence, but an attorney declined comment on the financial disposition. The fortune of the conductor, who is survived by his wife, Eoeliette, and two daughters, has been estimated in published reports at about $242 million.

My compliments on your excellent article "Autumn in the Park" (Oct. 10). However, your put-down of the St. Moritz on the Park is off the mark. I have stayed there on and off for the past year and have found it to be an excellent value, particularly during the week. True, its elevators are slow, but the hotel is being renovated and its renovated rooms are comfortable. The location is superb. Obviously there is a trade-off when you shop for price, but the St. Moritz on the Park is a good deal if you are looking for a reasonable room in a pricey location.

Based on my experience last Christmas, the Nov. 16 article about Sarajevo as a winter ski resort is likely to vastly mislead your readers. My stay there was a disaster from the viewpoint of the skiing, the hotel accommodation, the food and the organization overall. Skiing is highly unpredictable as regards condition of the slopes, operation of facilities, and the weather. Unlike Adriatic Yugoslavian resorts, Sarajevo has much yet to learn about catering to tourists and certainly does not justify comparison to the likes of St. Moritz or Innsbruck.

July 22, 1994 | MAX JACOBSON, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES; Max Jacobson reviews restaurants every Friday in Valley Life!
St. Moritz Restaurant, a stalwart of continental cuisine, has left the Boulevard for a snazzy new location at Toluca Lake Tennis Club. The kitchen, I'm afraid, needs an equally radical change. How well I remember those meals of fondue, beef rouladen and Caesar salad when St. Moritz was in its heyday, 20 years or so ago. The original St. Moritz was a pretty restaurant full of red leather booths and proud of its lovely outdoor patio lushly landscaped with ferns and plants.

In the old days, 10 or 15 years ago, before freshness and low-fat content became prized qualities in food, Continental cuisine was so pervasive you could swim cross-country in pools of cream and dried herbs. The fish you'd encounter would generally be frozen. The truffles, olives, and tomatoes were canned. But boy, were those entrees built! Remember veal cordon bleu? chicken Kiev? Dover sole a la fill in the blank? All that pounding, breading, stuffing, saucing and last-minute broiling?
