In keeping with the trend of lawsuits against fast-food franchises for making us fat, I've been thinking of initiating a suit against the restaurants in town. I wouldn't initiate this action from a health or weight standpoint. The essence of my charge is that these restaurants are damaging my reputation by serving noodles. The damaging incidents to which I allude take place not in the restaurants per se but more often at my home. Now and then, when we're feeling sporty, Patti Jo and I order out from a company that delivers meals from local restaurants.

EDITOR?S NOTE: Terry Markowitz, her husband, Mark, and friends just returned from a trip to Southeast Asia. Following is an account of their ?food? travels in the country. ? ?Today, we are going to see how rice noodles are made,? said Fong, our North Vietnamese guide. He had quickly picked up on the fact that we were interested in all things concerning food. We found ourselves in a tiny village outside of Hanoi beside a narrow branch of the Mekong River. The village, perhaps 20 houses in size, is entirely devoted to the production of this staple food.

It?s always exciting when a new restaurant opens in town. ?O? Fine Japanese Cuisine is the latest on the scene, tucked away in the Albertsons shopping center in a beautiful space they have created from an empty storefront. The forward-looking design is accented by dramatic blue lighting from large, round ceiling soffits meant to evoke the sea. In addition to brick walls are black wood panels with white wavy accents. It seems to be a new material and a fascinating and attractive one at that.

W e are faithful devotees of Vietnamese food, and we recently became big fans of Phans 55. Tucked away in an apartment complex right off Jamboree Road in Irvine, this is the hippest and most attractive Vietnamese restaurant outside of Vietnam that we've ever come across, and the food is top notch as well. The long, narrow, high-ceilinged room has been transformed into a sleek contemporary bistro with extravagant light fixtures made from strings of glass balls, kite-like fabric floating from the ceiling and a shiny stainless steel exposed kitchen.

EDITOR?S NOTE : From time to time, the Gossiping Gourmets will be reviewing restaurants outside Laguna Beach in bordering areas close enough for residents to travel to easily. These columns will be called ?The Gallivanting Gourmet.? ? Less than a mile from the Laguna border is Monarch Bay Plaza, home of the Crab Cove Restaurant. This attractive Euro-Asian bistro has made the most of its strip mall location. The outdoor patio is masked from the parking lot by three contemporary water walls.

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.

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.
