In the olden days, if you wanted food delivered to your door, it had to be Chinese or pizza. Then for a short while, you could get almost anything delivered from the various restaurant delivery services, but nowadays, it seems to be pizza, or pizza or else pizza that you can get brought to your home or office. Well, for those of you who like to eat your moo gai pan on the couch in front of the TV, or munch on dumplings at your desk, rejoice! Peony ? healthy Chinese cuisine, has come to Laguna and opened in the food court on Broadway.

The wood is in, the ovens are prepared and Selanne Steak Tavern is ready to open its doors in Laguna Beach. The restaurant named for Anaheim Ducks' star Teemu Selanne, one of two proprietors along with Kevin Pratt, will serve its first cocktail and meal beginning at 4 p.m. Friday, according to a news release. Selanne, which will double as both a casual tavern and an upscale steakhouse, opens in a spot formerly occupied by French 75, at 1464 S. Coast Hwy. Executive chef Joshua Severson's menu includes, as the restaurant's name implies, steaks and chops while also giving a nod to fish and poultry.

Do you all know about Kenneth Village, or am I about to let a secret out? I will admit that, until recently, I had sort of forgotten about this little corner of heaven, with its walkers, joggers and (baby) strollers, and appealing storefronts. It's a peaceful place to spend a few hours, especially a few lunch hours. A good place to start is George's Cucina Italiana. The small, 10-table interior is reminiscent of a European wine cellar, with coved ceilings and dim, flickering lights.

Valerie Swift Greetings from the road, and welcome to the first chapter of the Swifts' travel log. After a 16-hour flight, including a brief stop in Hong Kong, we were safely delivered to Taiwan's tangle of traffic and pollution called Taipei. The city is typically host to fringe ex-pats and inquisitive males. We seemed to be the only "Westerners" on holiday, especially as a couple. Surprisingly, we found Taiwan to offer quite a few worthwhile tourist attractions, a very agreeable attitude and genuine friendliness.

Those alphabetical brothers A and B Itti run the two best Thai joints in town: A, at Laguna-Thai-By-the-Sea and B, at Thai Bros. We have chosen to review them in alphabetical order (for A, see the Coastline Pilot April 28, 2006, issue) so now it's B's turn. If their cousin C, who lives in Bangkok, ever opens a restaurant in Laguna, you can be sure we'll review him next. Located in the former home of Benny the Bum's diner and even earlier, Shirley's Bagels, Lagunatics have been eating in this spot since the '70s but never as well as now at Thai Bros.

Glori Fickling When it comes to sophisticated ambience, the long-awaited debut of hush on Feb. 16, revealed to dedicated gourmands exactly what regal splendor is all about. This fascinating new dining attraction was packed to its handsome rafters two days following a private cocktail reception on Valentine's Day, and sans any notification of the exact opening date. Posed on the former site of Mark's restaurant and following a year of laborious reconstruction, enterprising principals Chuck Rock, Danny Reyes and Jonathan Pfluegar graciously tipped their respective hats to talented interior designer Carlton Graham who carried out the sensational additions and refurbishments.

The swinging singles sushi scene is happening at Mosun. When did sushi become so hip? It once was the quintessence of the Japanese esthetic: subtle, elegant and refined. Now, hamachi is hip, sashimi swings and bluefin is rockin'. Young people pack the bar like sardines, TV screens have replaced Ukiyo-e on the walls and speakers blaring loud music are buried everywhere in faux beams in the ceiling. The very dramatic red and black contemporary Asian/fusion décor features the de rigeur fish tank, a long sushi bar, a theatrical waterfall and a bridge surmounted with a giant boulder that crosses over a pond separating the bar from the dining room.

Turning a sow's ear into a Thai silk purse has been the project of A and Nan Itti since they acquired the space left by the old Village Deli and Liquor store in South Laguna. The addition of potted plants, a fountain and a small dining patio have made the exterior of Laguna Thai By the Sea more inviting. Inside, a mirrored wall and white tablecloths have dressed up this very modest, little neighborhood café. It's far from romantic, but the gentle charm of the place makes you feel at home.
