The line at the Tony Roma's table extended out 10 feet, hands down the longest at Thursday night's second annual Taste of Burbank. And those hands would have been streaked with the barbecue sauce from the chicken legs and ribs being served by restaurant employees. Arleta resident Mike Shanto was among those who lined up for a sampling of Roma's fare. "I love the food and I love the city and the music," Shanto said. San Fernando Boulevard between Orange Grove Avenue and Magnolia Boulevard was closed down for the event.

DINING OUT Always a mecca of bustling activity, Hennessey's Tavern, which debuted here in 1986, is the longest-running success story on Ocean Avenue's Restaurant Row. A sidewalk-facing open deck, usually crammed with a hip young crowd, sets a happy pace for the interior bar and adjoining dining room both equipped with ceiling-suspended TV sets. Upstairs there's live entertainment for dancing Wednesday through Saturday. Thus, there's something for everyone at the restaurant which attracts young families whose toddlers are entertained with their own menus to color and sports fans whose passion is easy to catch, especially when major games are in progress.

It seems that summer has finally arrived and so have the tourists and the traffic. However, summer also brings the pleasures of alfresco dining. One of the nicer spots in town to have an airy repast or a breezy beverage is the Shebeen, the upstairs lounge at Mozambique. Climbing the stairs, you enter the lounge through the bar area where the scene begins early and live music adds to the merriment. The L-shaped Shebeen is really a large outdoor terrace with banquettes along the walls, tile floors and an adobe fireplace.

What does someone with a graduate degree in Latin American History, two years’ experience teaching anthropology, doctoral work in Urban Planning and 30 years as a general contractor doing historic restorations do when they want to cut back? Why, enroll in culinary school of course! If that wasn’t your first guess, then you obviously don’t know Kim Allen, one of the most sophisticated and knowledgeable cooks in our home chef series to date. Growing up in Berkeley in the mid-1960s, when hippies ruled and hippies cooked, Kim was a kid who loved to bake and was always interested in food.

When you see the sign for Aliso Creek Inn and make the turn off Coast Highway, you might be put off by the equipment sheds and chain link fences that line the road until you reach a huge parking lot with a giant putting cage off to the left. But as you get out of your car and round the corner, you are suddenly dazzled by a spectacular vista, a carpet of green lawn descending down to a little bridge across Aliso "Creek," framed by the rugged brush-covered hillside beyond. The soft light of the setting sun highlights the gorgeous panorama.

There are surprisingly few places to eat outdoors in Southern California where you aren't tasting fumes from the Pacific Coast Highway or sipping sterility in a strip mall fast food joint. In contrast, the Sundried Tomato Cafe is set back from the street and up a few steps on a pleasant patio, surrounded by potted plants. Sitting at the tables with their crisp white cloths, you are serenaded by a murmuring fountain and treated to a view of the passing parade and "village atmosphere."

No, Margaret, there is no Santa Claus. There is no Tommy Bahama, and there is no Island that serves this cuisine. The other night we dined at the newly remodeled Tommy Bahama’s Island Grille and found ourselves at a Caribbean plantation house in a Newport Beach shopping center parking lot. Half the structure is a restaurant and the other half a retail store that sells the eponymous clothing one can wear to this and other fantasy islands....
