The unending Edinger Avenue eating establishments, found in strip mall after strip mall, are generally casual affairs with plastic furniture and very little atmosphere. So, when we opened the door to Bukhara Cuisine of India, we were astonished to find ourselves in an elegant little dining room with a crystal chandelier hanging and soft lighting on the walls, creating a tranquil atmosphere. The linens on the table are in tones of dusty rose and pale aquamarine while silvered floral wallpaper provides a background.

The City Council on Monday announced that after much consideration, it has decided to temporarily lift rules excluding children younger than 9 from the city’s Fourth of July main parade. This would allow several groups, including Girl Scouts, Indian Guides and Indian Princesses, to be an active part of this year’s parade. Officials said they would also allow face-painting, which was a top concern for many participating children. The Fourth of July parade has been a Huntington Beach tradition for decades.

Zankou Chicken restaurants are famous for the tender, roasted chicken and tasty garlic spread they serve, but not so much for the nondescript, cafeteria-like decor. The Southern California chain, owned by the Iskenderian family of Glendale, is planning to break with its reputation for good food but bad ambience by opening a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant with 27,000 square feet in Burbank. The building will include the chain's first patio seating, and a dome will grace its southeast corner.

Dave Brooks One of Huntington Beach's worst eyesores is finally getting a much-needed face-lift. Developers plan to knock down most of the Beachmont Shopping Center at the corner of Brookhurst Street and Adams Avenue and replace it with a 55,000-square-foot Ralphs Supermarket, which will anchor the center. Other buildings on the site, including the Sav-On drugstore, are slated for major interior and exterior remodels. In the end, developers hope to have a modern strip mall serving a five-mile radius.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The editorial will return next week.   Recent letters written by Dennis Crowley (“Towing visitors’ cars about the money,” July 10) and Joanne Milichich (“Signage needed before towing cars,” July 17) had pointed the blame for Fourth of July towing onto one or more of the following: the Huntington Beach Police Department, our city, school district and the Metropro towing company. Vehicles cannot be towed unless it is clearly posted as such.

DANETTE GOULET Following my disillusionment last week after my car was broken into, I thought it fitting to share stories from the other side of the spectrum. Now, I'll admit I have a soft spot for firefighters (really, what woman doesn't?) but two of the most touching stories of I've heard were about the actions of firefighters here in Huntington Beach. One of those two stories was celebrated Tuesday at the city's 32nd annual Public Safety Awards luncheon.

T'was the season to be jolly but now tis the season of our discontent. We are unhappy with the size of our bank accounts and even more dismayed by the size of our waistlines. Yet don't despair, we have discovered a sweet little place in a strip mall in Costa Mesa called California Wok that offers very healthy Chinese food for a very good price. It's located in a little Asian enclave on South Bristol Street near the big Mitsuwa Japanese market. The same strip mall is home to a Korean barbecue place, a Japanese restaurant, a pan Asian spot and Orchid, an Iranian restaurant.

Laurette Bistro, snug in the corner of the Ralph's and Sav-On strip mall on Beach Boulevard and Garfield Avenue in Huntington Beach, is like a bit of Paris -- the kind of place you'll treasure for your morning latte' or noontime croque monsieur. It's the dream come true for co-owner Laurette Turgemon and partner Simon Tourein, who had a restaurant on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. The warm, sunny colors welcome you with a display case at the entrance that is full of patisseries, fruit tarts and cakes.

We oppose the construction of Ripcurl and the Village. The original codes regarding height and density should apply to all projects in this area (and to all of Huntington Beach). We live in a neighborhood near Bella Terra. This mall itself affected the quality of our lives. Since its opening, our air quality has deteriorated. Bella Terra is an urban heat island. Traffic is already heavy on Edinger Avenue and on Gothard Street north of Edinger. Additional vehicles used by the proposed projects’ tenants, proprietors of the shops, their employees, delivery and service vehicles equal gridlock.

Eating for the masses has always been about convenience rather than quality, and speed often trumps other considerations such as luxury and ambience. Fortunately, there is a movement promoting the concept of enjoying food rather than merely consuming it. There are about 70,000 members in 45 countries since it was established in 1989. It is an unusual idea, and some of the tenets are healthy cuisine that does not harm the environment or diner’s health and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.

Huntington Beach dentist Christopher Chen said he was optimistic when he took over a practice in the shopping mall at Brookhurst Street and Hamilton Avenue two years ago. Yet when the Ralphs that anchored the shopping center moved out last summer, he noticed business dropped off and crime increased. Now he and the nearly 200 other residents and tenants who crowded the cafeteria at Edison High School for a town hall meeting on the future of the shopping center fear a rumored 99-cent store may replace the Ralphs and contribute to the mall's decay.
