After finally updating the decor a couple of years ago at the Langham Huntington Hotel 's fine-dining restaurant and bringing in Patina alum David Féau (after the departure of big name chef Michael Voltaggio), the Royce is doing a 180. In late 2010 the hotel lined up Féau and ex-Patina sommelier Eric Espuny and spent a fortune dressing up the place with skirted chairs and little sofas, a chef's table and not one but two glamorous glassed-in wine rooms -- white and red. Féau planted an organic garden and reveled in cooking special dinners around truffles or regional French dishes.

Outside the wall of windows, a helicopter hovers like a curious hummingbird investigating the dining room on the 32nd floor of the TransAmerica pyramid. Behind the helicopter, downtown's skyscrapers rise against a dusty pink sunset that washes the entire city in color. I can pick out City Hall, where the Daily Planet had its offices in the old Superman films, and three blocks away, Staples Center with klieg lights raking the sky above. Game night.

Hal Solarz, 92, had just sat down for a family dinner at a downtown L.A. steakhouse Saturday night when he excused himself to go the bathroom. Ten minutes later, he hadn't returned. A grandson checked the bathroom and returned to the table with bad news: His grandfather was gone. "He kind of has dementia," said his daughter-in-law, Barbara Solarz. "He might not have remembered that he was with us or where he was. " What followed was a frantic search that lasted more than 20 hours, as the family chased a trail of clues.

I'M writing in response to S. Irene Virbila's article on Puck's new steakhouse, Cut ["A Brilliant Steakhouse Indeed," Aug. 9]. About halfway through the review, Ms. Virbila states that the chef sears the steaks "in the 1,200-degree broiler to seal in the juices." Being in the food industry, Ms. Virbila should know that "sealing in the juices" of protein is a myth. Harold McGee states in his book "On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen" that "we do know for a fact that whether done early or late, searing does not seal, but it does brown: It won't prevent flavor from escaping, but it creates flavor via the complex browning reactions."

There were some questionable decisions made in the food and beverage industry last week and their consequences are still being felt Monday. Belvedere Vodka posted an ad that horrified customers with an implied rape scene while a Georgia steakhouse based a new burger on Chris Brown's 2009 attack on singer Rihanna. And Kraft Foods is discovering that its global snacks business' new name, Mondelez, has an unexpectedly vulgar connotation. Belvedere has removed a spot it posted on Facebook over the weekend depicting a shocked-looking woman trying to get away from the grip of a smiling man. “Unlike some people, Belvedere always goes down smoothly,” the ad crows.

Oscar Goodman , former Las Vegas mayor, mob lawyer and devout party boy, is lending his name to a new steakhouse opening in December at the Plaza Hotel & Casino on Fremont Street. The tagline the restaurant is reportedly considering: "Beef, booze and broads. " The "broads" refer to glamorous babes you can request at your table for dinner or drinks. A news release describes them as "an attractive concierge in evening attire. " Goodman gets irked when asked about the subtext of what dinner with a "broad" might lead to in Sin City.

Re: "Lawry's to settle bias suit," Nov. 3: It seems ridiculous that the Lawry's steakhouse chain will have to pay half a million dollars to males who bused tables before 2004 and couldn't be servers. Lawry's was far ahead of its time in hiring women. The same day, there was news about an article regarding the first female Beefeater guard at the Tower of London. It demonstrates how far Lawry's is ahead of the Brits. My recommended penalty is for Lawry's to donate all the prime rib dinners necessary to the UCLA and USC football teams to get them back on winning tracks.

Las Vegas is the land of bizarre service-industry auditions, where would-be cocktail waitresses are photographed in bikinis and experience often matters less than a fat-free figure and Chiclets teeth. And yet, the recent interviews inside the Plaza casino showroom were their own sort of odd. One by one, women climbed onto a stage to endure the polite grilling typical of a Miss America pageant. This made sense, because they were essentially competing for a title. A panel of questioners asked each one: What does being a "broad" mean to you?
