We took a sausage pizza home to our daughter, who was doing her homc- ·work. She greeted it with shouts of "Wonderful!" And it was. !. Gina's (closed Mondays) serves weekdays from -1 to 9 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays until 10. It's open only Fridays (or luncheon, 11 a.m. to 3, featuring superlative hot Italian sandwiches, pizza and Sylvia's specialties. '.. Verdict: A remarkable restaurant. Love those recipes! Love that food.' , MOKE IDEAS THAT AREN'T HARD TO SWALLOW: For terrific steaks, true premium beef, this dcpt. recommends the Captain's Quarters, one of Long Beach's best restaurants, on Pacific Coast Highway near Anaheim Street. It's owned by Bill and Judy Van Solingen, two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. They've done wonders with the place, redecorating and enlarging it. When you open up me big dinner menu, you discover a huge, dazzling list of different entrees, such as the top-sirloin steak, JG.45; cioppino, $6.85; roast rack of spring lamb with mint jelly, $6.85, and the prime rib- lobster tail combination, $8.90. There are more than 20 different seafood choices, each a dandy. Don't overlook the special candlelight-and-wine dinners served at [he Captain's Quarters Sundays through Thursdays, \ to 6:30 p.m. Featured arc prime rib or porterhouse steak, $5.95, or sand dabs, halibut or sea bass, $4.95. They're on the dinner with a carafe of fine California wine. The nightly entertainer is pretty Janet Greene, a triple talent who plays guitar and piano and sings. She's wonderful! Arc you one of those people who like a big dinner in the middle of the day? Then by all means visit Ye Olde Black Skillet, a modern, attractive restaurant at 1600 W. Ninth St., a block east of. Santa Fc Avenue. It's owned by cheerful George and Ethel Panos, who understand the art of serving a big variety meal of many taste . contrasts. They serve it from 11 a.m. on into the night. '' (They also serve luncheon, of course.) The dinner in. eludes appetizers, Manhattan-style clam chowder served ; in an abalonc shell, green salad with splendid dressing, choice of many different sytles of potatoes and warm 'garlic bread, very fresh. Among the entrees, £1.4!) to · $G.M, are choice eastern scallops, deep-fried and very tender; prime rib of beef au jus, savory and juicy; a handsome top-sirloin steak, lobster fiesta and sweetbreads saulced, with mushroom sauce. Lobster fiesta is 'a house special, including half a lobster en shell with crab, shrimp, topped with creamed mushroom sauce and cheese. Do you like chicken-fried steak with old- fashioned country gravy? Ye Olde Black Skillet has it 1 for $3.09 on that big dinner. The restaurant also has ·cocktails and excellent wines. People also go out of their way to (ell me how much they appreciate Lido's restaurant and Chateau cocktail lounge, 2790 E. Willow St. at Temple Avenue. They're absolutely right. Lido's is owned by Eddie Lagunas and his. pretty sister, Alma. They've made it remarkably successful because they serve such good food at such low prices. Luncheon and dinner are also served in Ihe smart Chateau lounge -- and the prices there are most sensible, too. The 24-hour coffee shop -- modern and colorful --serves breakfast, luncheon and dinner. There arc dinners every night for $2.25 or less, including soup, salad, potatoes and dessert. The daily breakfast for 8T cents is a marvelous good deal, including three hot- cakes, an egg and two sausages. The Tuesday night special is a top-sirloin steak dinner, $2.40 with all the trimmings, including soup, salad and dessert. Other steak specials are $2.40 on Wednesday and Thursday nights. An interesting guest had dinner the other evening at My House Cafe, 2708 E. Fourth St. She was Mary West, who owned My House for 20 years when it was on Redondn Avenue. My House has been owned for many years by Jerry Shcllaberger, who formerly worked for Mary. My House is (he kind of neighborhood cafe where you go when you want a home-style breakfast, luncheon or dinner. Because it's near Fourth Street's row of antique shops, Jerry has decorated it with some antiques, including copper utensils, platters, an ancient cash register (still usable) and a child's embroidery sampler dating back to 1811. Closed Saturdays and Sundays, My House is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Each night there are dinners for $2.50 to $2.70. The Friday night treats are roast turkey or roast pork, with salad, potato, vegetable, roll and dessert. Other nights the specials are beef short ribs (people love 'cm!), chicken and dumplings or roast beef. It's a miracle! It's the $1.!W chicken-pie dinner at Phillips Original Chicken Pie Shop, 7.T? Pine Ave. I'm impressed with how owner Don Phillips and his ace manager, Sam Saccamango, have kept the price lid on that dinner, one of the best values in town, by far. Included are a delicious, fresh, hot chicken pie with gravy, whipped potatoes (the really good kind), tangy coleslaw, hot biscuits with butter and choice of such desserts as cobbler, Jell-o or rice pudding. The shop is a big restaurant open every day from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. It's immaculate, front and back. Kids love it, too, because of the Chicken Pie Charlie Club deal which servos 'em a chicken-pie dinner for 00 cents, including beverage and dessert. It's for youngsters 10 and under.
