Stephen Santacroce When I'm not writing or working at my real estate job, I like to squeeze in a round of golf every now and then. Despite the frustration the sport can incite, golf courses are usually situated in grand settings and provide for a relaxing afternoon with friends. I wouldn't go so far as to call myself a golfer (nor would anyone who's played with me), but I enjoy the game. Eighteen holes can work up an appetite, especially when most of your time is spent looking for lost balls.

Greer Wylder Restaurateur Jeremy Umland says his life changed 26 years ago when a friend mentioned she was moving to Japan. On the spot, he decided to do the same, beginning the greatest adventure of his life. The 6-foot-2, blond-haired, blue-eyed Umland left the Bronx and says he became the first American to play baseball at a Japanese university. What started as a one-year sojourn turned into a 15-year stay. After college, Umland's pitching ability got him drafted by the Seibu Lions of the Japanese Pacific League.

When Pelican Hill Golf Club closed a couple of years ago for renovations I was depressed, but I think it was the restaurant closing that saddened me more than the golf course. There was nothing better than finishing a round of golf and then heading up the stairs to enter the restaurant and eat dinner while the sun was setting over the Pacific Ocean. When I found out the Irvine Co. wasn’t opening the restaurant back up in its previous location, I was disappointed. The new location was going to be lower down the street where the practice facility is located.

Deepa Bharath Barbecue lovers may call it a dream machine. Lloyd Ikerd just calls it "a legacy."

The grill was donated to the Fire Department by the Commodores Club....

We had Father's Day in our backyard. Four fathers present: Sherry's dad, her brother, a friend of the family and me. I don't like Father's Day. Or Mother's Day. Or the other Days that require compulsory cards and gifts and good times for all, no matter what. Good especially for the merchants who sell cards and gifts. If all this sounds cynical, consider that I'm sitting in my office looking out at a yard full of plastic chairs, an overflowing bag of trash, a couple of very wet tablecloths from the sprinklers kicking in and a memory of a gas grill that refused to work, requiring a magnificent tri-tip to be consigned to the oven in our kitchen while I fussed over the grill.

Andrew Edwards A renovation project at a Balboa Peninsula sports grill could give new meaning to the term "open bar." Rudy's Pub and Grill is in the midst of a redesign that started the day after the Super Bowl in January and is slated to be completed in July. Plans for the bar's new look are centered around designs for a retractable roof that would be rolled back during pleasant weather, so customers can eat and drink in the open air. "Obviously, places with patios do well, because no one wants to be in a dark cave," Rudy's partner Todd Carson said.

Brian Hirsty, executive chef for the Bluewater Grill, died March 10 following a recent diagnosis of a rare bone marrow disease. He was 47. Hirsty grew up in Southern California. He would often awake before the sun rose, eager to spend time with local fishermen arriving with the day's catch, according to an online restaurant memorial tribute. He would use the fish to practice recipes from the "Joy of Cooking" cookbook, the tribute continued, creating dishes praised by his earliest fan: his brother.

Newport Beach will put out a request for proposals from restaurants interested in occupying the empty building at the end of Newport Pier, which housed a seafood restaurant from 1993 until 2012, when its lease expired. Council members had considered seeking clearance from the Coastal Commission to remove the building and convert it into a flexible-use space that could host anything from food trucks to a tai chi class to music performances. Instead, during a study session Tuesday they decided that bringing a new restaurant to the space provided a tempting option - especially since Bluewater Grill had already expressed interest, city staff said during a study session that preceded the meeting.

Jose Alonso had mixed emotions Tuesday night. The El Torito Grill head chef was happy to still have a job, but sad to see that a big part of his life was shutting down, as it was the Newport Beach location's last day of operation after 26 years at the location. Alonso started working at the El Torito at Fashion Island 23 years ago, when he cleaned the restaurant. Two weeks after he was hired, he said he was promoted to prepare for the cooks. After three years of prep, he moved to a spot on the line, where he worked for another three years until he became the second chef.

Smoked billowed off the two grills as Sicilian sausage, hand-stuffed with three types of imported cheeses and coiled into neat foot-wide circles, cooked over the mesquite coal. The sausages went from the grill into a C'est Si Bon roll, topped with peppers and onions and covered in marina sauce before being sold at Sabatino's Lido Shipyard Sausage Company's booth. Sam and Donna Aromando, of Mission Viejo, each ate a sausage sandwich in the shade of the late afternoon sun Saturday at the 23rd annual Taste of Newport Beach.

It includes items such as sauteed kimchi, seafood pancakes and the house special pork. Choi shows her dedication to her academic clientele, the city and her alma mater by donating 1% of proceeds from every sale to either the UCI Scholarship Fund or the Irvine Public School Foundation.

The Fuji Grill at Big Corona Beach closed earlier this month — the victim of the bad economy and the city's increase in parking fees at the beach. "The parking really hit me," said owner John Lee. "The parking system should transition to usage-based billing system by using parking meter or some type of paid-by-hour system. This issue's been requested (by the) city ever since we opened to the public. The road block was the parking fee. It's a shame. I learned a good lesson.
