Sushi Imari is popular at lunch. There are seven tables and 15 seats at the Sushi bar, so if you aren't there by 11:30, you are probably going to be waiting for a bit. The staff is as accommodating as possible given the tight quarters, and most of the diners realize others are waiting and don't dally over their meal. The meal for us usually starts with edamame (soybeans) and miso soup. The restaurant usually has appealing lunchtime specials. This time, fire rolls ($7.95) and deep fried California roll ($4.75)

They're homeowners' associations, and in Newport-Mesa they're almost everywhere. Although many residents know they pay their yearly HOA dues, fewer know the extent or limits of the organizations' power, HOA manager Marla Hemmel said at a Women of Temple Bat Yahm Meal and Spiel lunch Thursday. The event was fourth in a five-part speaker series, said Tamar Brower, who organized the event.

He enlisted in the Marines 69 years ago as a 16-year-old who didn't even measure 5 foot 4. "I was the only Marine in my unit who didn't have any body hair," he told his guests Sunday.

"The original recipe has always been good people serving good food. " But he did guide La Cave toward its 50th anniversary, which takes place early next year.
