Main Street in Huntington Beach is slowly evolving into the place to eat your way around the world from the coming summer opening of Sushi & Teriyaki, the long-established, all-American Sugar Shack and the recently opened Momo's Margarita & Taco Bar for south-of-the-border specialties. The sun warms you, the yellow umbrellas protect you and the menu at Momo's satisfies your taste from a $2-breakfast of scrambled eggs with cheese, chicken or ham to a rib eye steak ($14.

Have you ever craved a spinach omelet at 3 a.m. or wanted to stoke up on steak and eggs before a trip to Vegas? Harbor House Cafe, on Pacific Coast Highway just south of the big wooden water tower in Sunset Beach, is there for you and all the diners who line up every Sunday outside for a seat at the counter or a booth in back to the patio plastered with vintage movie posters. We held the front screen door recently for a server coming out to replenish the drinks of three dripping-wet surfers seated on the bench outside devouring a plate of pancakes and eggs.

DINING OUT When Kiko Imamura and his wife Tomo visited Atlanta from their native Fukuoka, Japan 20 years ago, they felt the Japanese restaurants in the United States were too formal and didn't reflect the happy, friendly small cafes they loved in Japan. And so while vacationing in the United States the idea for Daimon was born -- a place with a lively sushi bar and round-the-hot-grill tile roof on Pacific Coast Highway. Daimon means "family crest."

John Volo My buddy Tony (a big Patriots fan), my buddy Kevin (a big eater), four other friends and I decided to go to Hurricanes for Monday Night Football. We were lured in by Hurricanes claim of having Huntington Beach's "ultimate" happy hour -- from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. all appetizers and cocktails are half price. We settled in at a high table centered right in front of the big-screen television. They also have an even larger television (110 inches)

Mary Furr Huntington Beach is a patchwork of living spaces. It has trailer parks and condos, apartments and bungalows, each neighborhood with its own favorite eating places. Jon's Coffee Shop, on Bolsa Chica and Heil, is one of those places. Jon's welcomes you like your favorite pair of sneakers, with breakfast, lunch and dinner served from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Though coffee shop is part of its name, the extensive menu is more like a restaurant. Service is brisk and friendly, just what you need for an early breakfast.

The prior weekend was spent in glorious celebration of the best time of the year. Football season has arrived, and I spent my weekend lying prone on the couch for most of it, toggling between games. There was college football Saturday, which proved to be an appetizer for what I really hungered for — the NFL. By Monday I was bleary-eyed from watching television for so long and feeling a bit self conscious that I was basically a hermit for 48 hours. There was a rare double-header Monday night, but rather than deepen the imprint on my couch, I decided to venture out and join humanity and share in the joy of the nation’s most popular sport.

We don’t have enough institutions in this country. We seem content, almost satisfied, to tear down landmarks, especially restaurants. One I hope never sees the wrecking ball is Captain Jack’s. The Sunset Beach establishment was opened by local surfing legend Jack Haley and is known for its crab legs. Haley opened the restaurant in 1965 and started serving steak and seafood to the locals. Though minor additions have been made to the menu over the years, steak and seafood still dominate the fare.

The days of summer are dwindling, and kids are complaining about homework already, but my Off to College Boy is savoring the last days of freedom. As the friends peel off to their respective institutes of higher education, he has been left with fewer and fewer burger buddies, so he recently agreed to accompany me on a "burger test" for this column. Free food is always an incentive with this age group. The target was The Great White Hut, a fixture on the corner of California Street and Orange Avenue in Glendale since 1941.

That jubilant scream reverberating through the city last Wednesday morning was my knee-jerk reaction to the boys' return to school. It was impossible to contain my excitement with the smell of freedom (my freedom!) permeating the air. It was cause for celebration -- but where? In the absence of any Wednesday morning champagne brunches, the festivities were delayed until dinnertime. But by the time the well-oiled machine of Ron, Beth and I had picked up two kids from baseball, two kids from soccer and one teenager from home, dining out was as much a time management necessity as a celebration.

The former home of French 75 has had a complete makeover, and the new restaurant, Selanne's Steak Tavern, is quite attractive. The front has some beautiful new landscaping. The outdoor patio with its fireplace has some wonderful new hanging Moroccan-style fixtures. The interior is painted all white but with beautiful, slightly distressed oak floors. Interesting touches include a zinc horse head and a fossilized crocodile skull. A lounge with fireplace can be seen as one enters, and a wine bar is down a few steps to the left.

Stepping into A Restaurant is like stepping into a time machine and finding oneself back in a 1940s steakhouse with dim lighting, nail-studded, dark red leather booths, wood paneling, a roaring fireplace and a buzzing bar. When oil was discovered in Huntington Beach in the early 1920s, a road was built to connect Newport Beach to Huntington. In 1926 a restaurant and service station was constructed at that junction and called the Arches. At first, it was just a roadside diner, but by the '40s it was known for its steak, seafood and Hollywood stars.

There's a bit of 21st-century technology hidden onstage during Walter & David's performances at La Brique Steak House. But aside from that, as far as the duo is concerned, it's 1947. Walter Lakota and Dave Alcantar, who both sing and play multiple instruments, put on a big band jazz show the fourth Friday of every month at the Huntington Beach restaurant. Typically, they're joined by two or three other horn players, but thanks to some fancy programming on Alcantar's electronic keyboard, you might mistake it for a whole orchestra.

Karaoke machines don't scare Richie Fauno. The veteran pianist, who has played for three decades at Villa Nova in Newport Beach and recently took on another gig at La Brique Steak House in Huntington Beach, provides accompaniment the old-fashioned way. Fauno invites customers to name a tune — given his repertoire of hundreds of songs, there's a good chance he knows it — and then plays and sings backing vocals behind them. As far as Fauno is concerned, his craft isn't the low-tech equivalent of singing "You Oughta Know" into a microphone at the local sports bar. It's art on a higher level.

A La Carte has finally bitten the dust. The gourmet takeout restaurant and catering company that we lovingly created in 1986 from a fortune teller's apartment and sold seven years ago, passing through two subsequent owners, is now undergoing a complete transformation in the competent and experienced hands of the Molteni family. We watched with mixed emotions and curiosity because of our special attachment to this space and wanted to talk to them about their plans. Our concerns melted away when we met the engaging and enthusiastic Moltenis.

One of my dining faults is that I wait to long to eat, and when I finally do I don?t have a plan. That leads to indecision, which results in my driving around with no purpose and finally settling on a place that I really didn?t want to go to in the first place. Sadly, that was the case with J and J Subs. I was hungry and was also reeling after paying $50 for items at Big Lots. See what hunger will do to a human being? As I was driving down Magnolia Street in a somewhat delirious state, I saw the restaurant and pulled in to a parking space.

There's no I in "steak." David Silveria, Tuna Town owner and drummer for heavy metal band Korn, says the high-end steakhouse he plans to open downtown will be named after himself ? almost. The second I in his name is silent, so he decided to drop it entirely when christening his new business venture. When the restaurant opens in August, the name out front will be Silvera's Steakhouse. That way, even the most pronunciation-challenged of carnivores will say the owner's name correctly.
