Glori Fickling When Laguna Beach residents recently received the colorful card from Sorrento Grille & Martini Bar inviting them to their "Locals Only Special" it was no time before the martini contingent hopped onto the bargain, which offered: "Huge Locally Famous Martinis" for the "way-too-cheap" price of $4.95, usually $9 to $11. This translates to the full range of 13 different birdbath size premium potables including...

DINING OUT A sophisticated new ambience distinguishes Mario's Cafe & Bakery which was launched eight years ago in Downtown Laguna Beach at the forefront of Food Village. Personally remodeled by enterprising principal Hans Khademi, the restaurant is now a study in burnished mahogany and richly polished marble setting a handsome pace replete with a trio of graceful chandeliers, smartly striped fabric-covered banquettes backing immaculately laminated tables and mahogany chairs.

Glori Fickling When it comes to alfresco dining, there is probably no more popular spot along the coast than Cafe Zinc & Market on Ocean Avenue adjacent to the bus depot Downtown. Founded in 1988 by enterprising localite John Secretan, the cozy retreat is a vegetarian delight and has been conceived with enough imagination and variety to please even non-vegetarian diners. Directly inside the 20-table patio, a service bar with five more tables poses a backdrop for the works of local artists.

April may be the cruelest month, but September in Laguna is definitely the hottest. While Easterners are shopping for back-to-school sweaters and scarves, we are slathering on sunscreen and sweltering in the heat. This is the month cooks complain about, desperately seeking ways to stay out of the kitchen. Barbecuing is one solution, if there is someone else to man the grill, but we would like to suggest another alternative where nobody has to sweat: a three-course menu that requires no heat at all. Let?

Glori Fickling When enterprising Kim "Coyote" Bryant launched his popular Coyote Grill in 1989 on the site of the former Cove Cafe in South Laguna, he introduced to locals an authentic taste of Baja. The grill is now the domain of his talented daughter, Desiree, since Bryant migrated to Hawaii to become successful builder, the restaurant will celebrate a happy 15th anniversary on Aug. 30. Beyond its start as a charming little diner with a small kitchen, Coyote Grill now opens up to a thatched roof cocktail lounge that's a buzz of activity, especially at happy hour.

Glori Fickling Laguna Beach foodies are well aware that this summer season brought a happy diversity of dining out news. Not everyone is aware, however, about the launching of dinner at Madison Square and Garden Cafe. This popular alfresco creation devised by enterprising Jonathan Madison has long been popular as a breakfast and lunch respite. When the word continued that Madison had also acquired a beer and wine license, the enticing garden setting became even more inviting as the place for a refreshing evening outing.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT Much more than a meal, dining at restaurants with an old friend who visits from the East Coast resembles a bad comedy routine -- punctuated by playful under-the-table pokes and stifled groans hidden behind the safety of a menu. My pal, Judy, is not a clever wit who intentionally amuses her table mates. She's just exceedingly particular about what she eats. All salad dressings and sauces go on the side, and wait persons are summarily drilled about how her chosen source of protein is prepared.

The ?small plate? revolution has been storming the ramparts of fine dining. On the tail of the grazing phenomenon, the movement has gained steam with menus that are more casual, less expensive and filled with variety. Now K?ya in Laguna Beach has overthrown the reign of the three-course meal entirely with a new menu by chef Craig Connole, consisting of nothing but small plates, including lots of ethnic diversity and a huge variety of dishes from coq au vin to curried chicken; and from ahi poke to truffle risotto.
