The second annual Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Please is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. at the Newland Barn, 19822 Beach Blvd., in Huntington Beach.

Andrew Edwards One by one, kindergartners at Lake View Elementary School knelt down to take a hands-on approach to milking a cow. In Alisa Lembke's class, children took turns "milking" Annabelle -- the latest in cow substitution technology. Built by student-teacher Jennifer Houghland, Annabelle is a wood and cardboard mock-up painted to look like an actual Holstein. A few bits of straw stuck out of her pink sponge mouth and for udders, Annabelle sported a latex glove filled with water.

Doug Tabbert I sat down at one of the 20 wide, dark, wooden picnic tables and waited for my lunch special at one of the two Lamppost Pizza locations in Huntington Beach. This one was in the sleepy strip mall on the corner of Brookhurst and Adams and serves lunch specials from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pepperoni or cheese was the only decision demanded of me. I responded swiftly and proceeded to the soda fountain positioned between videogames like "Metal Slug 5."

John Volo As I was leaving the gym, I picked up a flier for Super Hero's sandwiches. The eclectic sandwich offerings with names, such as the honey bee, the cattle drive and the Don Ho, piqued my interest. So, the following Tuesday, my wife and I went with our friends, Ron and Beth, to Super Hero's for lunch. We soon discovered that for innovative sandwiches, creative sodas and refreshing smoothies, it's Super Hero's to the rescue. The inside decor, however, could use some rescuing.

Are you old enough to remember when French cuisine came to the United States and set the standard for fine dining? Home cooks across America were loyally watching Julia Child and rushing to buy her cookbooks, while a plethora of French eateries from bistros and brasseries to elegant restaurants opened across the country. Today, it's just another of the multitude of ethnic and fusion dining options we have in Orange County. But sometimes I find myself longing for a little French bistro with a quiet atmosphere and good old-fashioned food.

Doug Tabbert I was feeling good but hungry as I walked into the clubhouse at Meadowlark Golf Course after parking my ride under a shady spot, thanks to an amiable eucalyptus tree. Golf courses can be wonderful places to eat and relax, even if you haven't spent the previous five hours wrenching a small, obstinate white ball from tee to green. It's not just the grassy expanse that the three wall-length windows render observable at Meadowlark's restaurant that can alter one's perspective.

DINING OUT Who can resist a quick lunch place like Fritzankotter's Sandwich Factory on the corner of Warner Avenue and Springdale Street? It offers more than 50 sandwich varieties each named after a famous actor, politician or sports star. One can't help speculating about the relation between ingredients and the personalities -- is Mickey Rooney corny thus a corned beef sandwich named after him? And what about Sophia Loren with Genoa salami on a French roll?

John Volo On a recent Tuesday with both kids settled in school and my wife off from work, we decided to reconnect over a late breakfast at a Huntington Beach institution, the Sugar Shack. The Sugar Shack has been serving up hearty breakfasts and tasty lunches to surfers and nonsurfers alike since 1967. Since it was such a beautiful day, we were looking to dine outside. The Sugar Shack, which is Downtown, offers both front and back patio seating as well as indoor table and counter seating.

An old business acquaintance who loves Mexican food and I were going to catch up over lunch. He is not that adventurous in the culinary realm, however, so I took him to a place that was a little more mild. Don Ramon?s is ideal. It is family-owned and operated, and has been specializing in traditional-style Mexican food for years. The usual suspects are on the menu: enchiladas, tacos, taquitos and chile rellenos, but there are enough twists offered to keep me interested. While he could nosh on a combination plate of the above items, I could venture into dishes like spinach-filled enchiladas, or a quesadilla with pork, green chile and cheese that is then deep fried.

Since the day Lucca Café opened in Irvine, owner/chef Cathy Pavlos has consistently prepared exciting, delicious Mediterranean-style cuisine. The menu features a gorgeous variety of vegetable antipasti, a superb selection of cheese and an extensive list of charcuterie including salumi by Armandino Batali. Tucked away in the Tuscanesque Quail Hill shopping center off Sand Canyon Road, diners can enjoy the pleasant patio or their open-kitchen dining room with softly curved walls and counters.

Bienvenidos a Carmelita's, Laguna's newest Mexican restaurant. It replaces the long-gone Vietnamese Cajun restaurant on Broadway with a spiffy new renovation. With its tasteful tile and stonework accents, the remodeled interior might be called modern Mexican. Low lighting from attractive hanging fixtures, a color scheme of brown and beige with ivory-colored studded-leather booths along one wall create a comfortable, upscale atmosphere. A large bar offering tequilas, margaritas and beer dominates one end of the room.

Hotel restaurants are notorious for high prices and mediocre food, but there are exceptions, and we've found one just across the San Diego (405) freeway from South Coast Plaza. What was once a decidedly unattractive Holiday Inn has been transformed into a handsome, modern boutique place called the Hotel Hanford. Surprisingly, its Savoy Restaurant & Lounge has delicious, inventive food at reasonable prices. The restaurant, bar and lounge are all in a large room right off the lobby.

It's always exciting to meet people who have bravely given up "real jobs" to fulfill their passions after years of thinking and planning. John Bennett and Hans-Erich Vogel are two such people. They recently opened Vin Goat, the cleverly-dubbed wine and cheese boutique on East Coast Highway in Corona del Mar. Their shop features artisanal products from small suppliers worldwide: cheeses, charcuterie, gourmet pantry items and wine (as soon as their license comes through). And what is cheese without bread?

Orange County just landed a fantastic cheese shop that's making cheese connoisseurs and foodies swoon. Taste Abbaye de Belloc made by Benedictine monks at the abbey of Notre Dame from French Pyrenees sheep's milk; the famed cow's milk cheese Époisses de Bourgogne, referred to as the "king of all cheeses"; and one of the country's finest goat milk cheeses, Humboldt Fog. Vin Goat in Corona del Mar fills a void in the market—no more driving to...

“Upscale sports bar” would seem to be an oxymoron, but in recent years, I have seen more and more places upgrade not only the surroundings but the food. One of those is SandBox Sports Grill, which is next to the nightclub Flight Bistro on Adams Avenue near Beach Boulevard. The goal, I believe, of both places is to pull in the 20- and 30-somethings, because SandBox looks more like a club than a sports bar. There are high-back leather chairs around the bar and a raised area that has leather couches, just like a club.
