The new Montage resort keeps a low profile; at night it practically takes night- vision goggles to spot the turnoff of South Coast Highway. This is one Laguna Beach luxury resort that really is on the ocean side of Coast Highway. With rooms starting at $450 per night, the surprise is the discreet decor, at least in the lobby lounge. The sofas don't look as if they're scaled for NBA players, and when you sit down in an armchair, your feet can actually touch the floor.

Two friends testified Tuesday that actor Robert Blake was agitated and appeared upset as he dined at a Studio City restaurant with his wife shortly before she was shot dead. "He seemed upset about something," Richard Noel told jurors in Van Nuys. He also said Blake "seemed a little animated" as the actor and wife Bonny Lee Bakley talked at their booth in Vitello's restaurant. Blake is being tried on murder charges in the slaying of Bakley, 44, near Vitello's on May 4, 2001.

A man who was told to leave a Universal Studios restaurant after arguing loudly with another patron early Friday returned with a gun and fired several shots at security guards and about 100 other customers, "miraculously" missing them all, authorities said. Charles Bryant, 31, of Studio City, was then chased by restaurant security guards and captured after the 1:30 a.m. shooting incident outside the Victoria Station restaurant. Bryant was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and was being held without bail in the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department jail in West Hollywood, Deputy Roger Hom said.

The owners of a new Studio City restaurant will cut back late-night hours, and a residents' association agreed in return not to oppose the sale of alcohol under a compromise approved Monday by a Los Angeles zoning administrator. Tre Venezie, an Italian restaurant planned for 4100 Cahuenga Blvd., near Lankershim Boulevard, was granted a permit to sell alcohol until midnight Sunday through Thursday, and until 1 a.m. on weekends.

A compromise that could end months of wrangling over a liquor license for a posh new Studio City restaurant was toasted Friday by both sides in the dispute. A city zoning administrator said he will authorize limited liquor sales as part of a conditional-use permit for the proposed Bistro Garden restaurant if its developer will take steps to protect the serenity of an adjoining neighborhood. "We can live with that," said Rose Elmassian, secretary of the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn.

The silver-haired man who looks a little like Spencer Tracy bends over the table to get some mental leverage as he hauls up a cobwebbed memory about how they shot "Jesse James"--the movie, that is. When someone asks "Who were the stars?" John (Bear) Hudkins waves off the question. They were Henry Fonda and Tyrone Power, but that's not important. What's important is the stuntmen.

Transplanted New Yorkers believe that eating out should be a heady experience in a lively place with people coming and going and enjoying good food--exactly what Peter Karkos and his manager August Nazzaro have in mind for their Studio City place, the OutTake Cafe. They serve goodly portions of well-priced food here, and quiet and intimate it isn't. "This is a high-energy place, and we try to serve quality food at a fair price," says Nazzaro.

It's twilight, and soothing jazz mixes with the din of voices coming from across the crowded tables. Talk soon fades. Heads turn. All eyes are drawn to the frenetic steps of three tap dancers whose rapid-fire clicks fill the room with the intensity of marching infantry. But this isn't a supper club--it's a sushi bar, tucked into a mini-mall with a nail salon, a carpet store and a fast-food chicken joint. Sushi on Tap seems like an unlikely setting for a burgeoning dance scene.
