Co- owner Dick Katsaris acquired ideas for Irish decor during trip to Dublin area. His wife *v:is horn in Ireland. By TEDD THOMEY WAYOUT WAYS TO MAKE A BUCK -- For years my wife and I have been on a lot of mail-order sucker lisis, receiving catalogues offering mostly junk. Recently a new company entered the field, producing a slick catalogue called "A Man's World." It has a Playboy mgazine atti- t u d e and format, designed to appeal to well-heeled guys eager to spend their 1(101. Some of the gift ideas are so fantastic I thought at first they were gags. Rut they've got to he real, if only because they're so impossibly expensive. Would the man in your life like a Wall Street. Electronic Executive Desk equipped as a complete instantaneous c o m m u n i c a t i o n s center w i t h TV, radio, tape recorder, etc.? It's merely $ 1,295. Other ideas include a miniature electronic alarm clock, 1'/;, inches long and 1 inch high, $59.98; a wallet made out, of genuine pink elephant skin, $19.98, and a roomful of "La Dolce Vila" inflatable furniture, $249.98. The latter is designed for the bachelor who wants to convert an empty basement or attic quickly into a party room. Made in Italy, the mod f u r n i t u r e is heavy clear vinyl which can be blown up, the m a n u f a c t u r e r claims, in two minutes. The most revolting gift of all is a $9.98 beer tankard designed In shock an unsuspecting guest. As he raises it to his lips, a concealed device emits a loud, disgusting belch. It's called a Slob Mug. * * * DEPT. OF DINING MAGNIFICENCE AT HUNTINGTON HARBOUR -- Becoming more serious for a moment, let me tell you about a superb new restaurant which the Stepping Out department explored the other n i g h t . It's the Treasure Chest, 1R903 Algonquin Ave., located in the, smart new Boardwalk shopping center at Hunlington Harbour. It's reached easily by driving east on Warner Avenue from Pacific Coast Highway. Everything about the Treasure Chest is massive and solid, inside and out. The building exterior is modern western in design, constructed with huge, thick cedar pillars which look indestructible. The spacious interiors resemble a combination of an old English tavern and an Irish pub. Its owners, Dick Katsaris (former co- owner of Sam's Sea Food) and ex-produce wholesaler Frank Kessler, are wood lovers who spent months of hard work personally cutting and gouging the heavy timbers which decorate the walls and ceilings. They did a magnificent job, darkening the wood and adding such luxurious effects as luscious red carpeting, ship lanterns and wheels, an entertainment lounge and a handsome wine cellar which resembles a British jail. The Treasure Chest, open for luncheon too, has a limited but select dinner menu, designed to appeal to the families residing in the nearby Hunlingtnn Harbour homes which have individual boat and yacht anchorages. Priced from $3.50 10 $6.50 are such entrees as isle of Crete Soulvakia, chicken, lobster tails and succulent steaks. My wife and 1 tried the Parliament Special. $4.95, a beautifully thick slice of roast prime rib, and the roast rack of spring lamb, with mushrooms, onions, carrots and mint jelly, same price. Prepared in an attractive p.xhihiliim kitchen, the entrees were fresh and unusually tempting. The side dishes included hot toast appetizers, immense salads with superlative Roquefort dressing and a loaf of hot fresh sourdotigh bread with a heavenly aroma. We dined on thick wood tables, varnished to a high gleam, equipped with immaculate red linen center cloths and napkins. Our service, excellent, was by pretty Diana Petronio, wearing a lovely, low-necked pub costume. Verdict: The very best! 1 predict that t h o Treasure Chest will be one of this area's most successful restaurants. P.S. This week another luxurious restaurant opened in H u n t i n g t o n Reach at nearby Bolsa and Edwards avenues. It's the Golden Galleon, also owned by former members of the management, team at Sam's Sea Food -- · Gary Kalsaris and his brother-in-law, Doug Beckland. * * * CHOICE STOPS ALONG TABLE ROW: For an award-winning dinner prepared by experts who know all the flavor secrets, visit Anderson's Tally Ho, a scenic old English tavern restaurant at 5829 L a k e w o o d Blvd. just north of South Street. Ace chef John Cirillo offers such marvelous a la carte appetizers as lobster or oyster cocktails, Caesar salads or crab louies. An Italian expresso machine makes fascinating after-dinner coffee-liqueur beverages. Among the beautiful dinner entrees: double French cut lamb chops, $4.75; savory N.Y. pepper steak, $5.75: fresh filet of sole. $2.85; fresh sand dabs, $3.25, and fresh, sauteed chicken livers with mushrooms, $3.25. I also go a little off my rocker when contemplating the dazzling number of sea food items at Lobsterland, 4610 E. Alondra Blvd., Compton, near the Long Beach Freeway. It's decorated delightfully in a Maine wharf motif. Open for luncheon and dinners, it features live Maine lobster, beautiful fried shrimp, abalone, frog legs, fried whole New England clams, marvelous clam chowder and fresh oyster slew. The dinners are $2.95 to $6.50. Host Clifford LaChance, born in Danvers, Mass., has great expertise on sea food preparation. * * * PUT THESE AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST TOO: For beautifully fresh and tempting Mexican food, my wife and I sing the praises of El Matador Restaurant, 5734 E. Second St., Naples, owned by mustachioed Jose Rodriquez who is also the chef. He loves his work and turns out such prized items as I h e special dinner, $2.50, including many fine items; combinalion plates, $1.75, and Mexican dinners, $2.25. Jose's T-bone steak, served Mexican style, is $3.50 and delectable. * * * OH, SO THAT'S WHAT IT IS -- That man's gift catalogue I mentioned earlier also lists genuine dinosaur coprolite cuff links, $9.98. They are described as rock- hard gems "glowing in m u l t i tones of blue and red." Then the blurb goes on to explain, quite frankly, how coprolite was formed, saying: "You just never know what may be a collector's item some day, do you? The dinosaurs blithely gamboled over the earth's surface millions of years ago, doing what comes n a t u r a l l y and j leaving their droppings everywhere. Now we have a | name for it.
