Here is some sweet news. The Planning Commission last month approved a new bakery and take-out restaurant in the Food Village on Broadway Street. Gateau et Cuisine will specialize in European-style cakes, tarts, custom wedding cakes, cookies, drinks, breakfast items, salads, soups and artisan breads. "I am super excited," said owner and local Judy Haron, who has targeted Feb. 1 as the grand opening of what she calls a "bistro bakery. " Haron, who has an associate of arts degree in fashion design and a bachelor's of fine arts in textile design, most recently attended the Art Institute of California - Orange County in Santa Ana, where she received a diploma in baking and pastry arts.

When in Brussels, one eats mussels, so too, at Brussels Bistro in Laguna. You can find it tucked beneath an art gallery on Forest Avenue and it has all the charm and conviviality of the many little cafés lining the narrow streets around the Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium. Of course, no proper mussel shop is without its large selection of draft and bottled beers and that is the case in this old world café. The walls are red brick, the ceilings are beamed and banquettes line the sides of the cozy room.

Rick’s Partners Bistro has bid farewell to Laguna Beach. The landmark restaurant, known for its sophisticated cocktails, cuisine and nighttime entertainment, auctioned all of its property this week in a liquidation sale — even the potted plants. The local hang-out, which was often filled with jazz and swing music by performers like the Gary Hogan Trio and Brad Malinowski, is now strangely silent. Ostrin and Ostrin Auctioneers were hired to hold an auction at the property Wednesday, where they opened bids for the establishment’s liquor license and all kitchen appliances and supplies.

As the Asian population of Orange County has grown, so has the number of its ethnic restaurants. If you are willing to venture outside of Laguna, you will find an astonishing variety of styles and tastes from Vietnam, Japan, Korea, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and, of course, from all regions of China. Exploring and tasting is one of the great food adventures offered by life in the O.C.   However, there are times when you just want to eat good old-fashioned Chinese food close to home; you know, the kind we grew up with, the type they serve at China Bistro #1. It is so familiar to us you could almost call it comfort food.

Glori Fickling An interesting happening occurred last week en route to seeking column information for The Coastline Pilot. A stately lineup of tall seats on the sidewalk above Brussels Bistro beckoned me downstairs into the restaurant where I quickly discovered several fascinating changes. Realizing the Bistro was on the brink of a first anniversary I decided to congratulate owner Alain Gerard whom I met at the opening one year ago. However, rather than the Alain who launched the place in early December 2003, I found his partner, Alain Pauwels, has replaced Gerard who returned to their shared Brussels hometown restaurant.

Glori Fickling With a spacious deck fronted by a lacy ficus tree and a refreshing glance of the Pacific Ocean, Heidelberg Pastry & Bistro has been attracting a dedicated breakfast and lunch clientele for some 13 thriving years. This is the popular creation of Ferdinand Littner, an executive chef who designs the creative menus, pastries, cookies and breads, and who last year launched Cafe Vienna in South Laguna. Tangerine walls of the welcoming interior serve as a complementary canvas for the continuing succession of paintings displayed by local artists.

Glori Fickling A mere six months under construction, the long-awaited Brussels Bistro has finally livened the long-vacant site on Forest Avenue originally known, circa 1950s, as the Cellar. Quietly opening to the public on Laguna's annual Christmas Hospitality Night was a big surprise, said delighted principal Alain Gerard, "because we became so busy we were barely prepared to handle such a crowd." The launching was followed by a cocktail reception honoring Gerard's visiting mayor from Brussels whose presence was invited to celebrate the introduction of his homeland's bon vivant cuisine to our town.
