DINING OUT An enticing new dimension was added to our world renowned Festival of Arts with the July launching of Zov's Satellite Cafe. Inspired by the award-winning Tustin Bistro / Cafe / Bakery conceived 27 years ago by enterprising principal Zov, this current little venue was astutely selected by Festival aficionados as an alternative to the Festival's commercial fast food emporiums of past years. The limited menu of Eastern Mediterranean fare is quickly expedited in clear boxes and packaged with napkin-wrapped plastic utensils in conveniently handled white bags making it simple to carry to any of the many tables posed all over the verdant grounds.

Glori Fickling More akin to a private country club than an ordinary restaurant, Canyon Lodge and American Grill, proudly perched atop Aliso Creek Inn, overlooks the sprawling greenery of its own private golf course. Dating back to the '50s when it was known as Ben Brown's, the place has continued through a trio of reconstruction stages under direction of original owner, Violet Brown, who has astutely managed the place since the death of the property's original namesake, her late husband Ben Brown.

Hidden in plain sight, GG's Café-Bistro has been open for 15 months, but many locals haven't discovered it yet. It occupies a site that has been the home of several short-lived bakeries and sandwich shops in the center called The Collection on Pacific Coast Highway, across the street from the Wyland Gallery. The restaurant itself is partially hidden behind the central staircase, but there's a large patio-seating area with an ocean view that you can't miss. They have completely remodeled the cozy interior.

Every night is like a party at Eva's. You are welcomed with a hug and a radiant smile by the beautiful and charming hostess, which makes you feel that you are in for a good time. Choose between the patio, surrounded by trees and the sounds of a one-man steel drum band (on weekends) or in the high-ceilinged, brightly colored dining room festooned with charming Haitian tin cut-outs and vibrant ceramic faces. Now that you're comfortably seated in this cozy neighborhood eatery, the gracious Eva will offer to whip up one of her famous, potent libations.

A few weeks ago at the Patriots Day Parade, a group of Lagunans gathered together on the corner of Forest Avenue and Third Street to chant, "Save Cedar Creek! Save Cedar Creek! Save Cedar Creek!" Many of us have been feeling this way since a news item appeared in the paper suggesting that the restaurant may not be able to renew its lease. From what we can gather, this information may be somewhat premature, as negotiations are still up in the air. Even in the worst-case scenario, they will still be here for another year.

Hush may be the most ironically named restaurant in America. Granted, we were there on a night when they were having a benefit for Haiti, complete with live music; but previous visits confirm that this is not a place to go for quiet conversation unless you go on a weeknight very early or unless you?re on a blind date that?s not going very well. The least expensive, although the noisiest place to eat, is at the happening bar that seems to be very busy and buzzy almost all the time.
