ABOUT THE RED SNAPPER SITUATION WHICH HAS BECOME A LITTLE FISHY - It's a cruel world, as many California restaurateurs have been discovering. For years, businessmen from the city of Roquefort, France, have made life miserable, for Southern California restaurant owners who serve bleu cheese 1 · dressing but call it Roquefort. Now they're being attacked from another quarter. : Businessmen from Florida are trying to hook them in a controversy about red snapper, a sea food that has gained popularity in California restaurants in recent years. '. For about a decade, the Roquefort cheese people . Save brought suit against many American restaurants f and threatened others with suits. Back in the 1960s, *;· .such a suit forced a Long Beach restaurant, the Swiss; K[ Village on E. Broadway, out of business. *'f "-. Many restaurant owners in this area are now so vjaware of the situation they won't'allow the word .^Roquefort to be even whispered in their dining rooms. Tfhose astute Frenchmen once collected on a damage |-suit based on evidence that a waitress accidentally ''used the word Roquefort instead of bleu cheese when ^ discussing salad dressing choices with her customers. y~ The Roquefort interests can't be blamed for their !·'' cheesy attitude. They are protecting a superlative ' . variety of cheese produced only in their area and sold · ;throughout the world. They've been so successful that champagne bottlers in the Champagne region of France are threatening to bring suit against California champagne interests and others who. make champagne -, throughout the world. The Frenchmen insist champagne is a French word that cannot be legally used for : .-beverages produced anywhere else. Whether they will r ..i be as successful as the Roquefort people remains to be ; seen. The champagne issue isn't as clear-cut as the ^Roquefort matter. Recently, the restaurant owners of California have been warned that the red snapper industry in Florida is mad at them and considering legal action. Red snapper is a splendid table fish native to the waters off Florida. ,. There is also, a Pacific red snapper, which is quite ^ different, but which has been .called red snapper for v many decades. ' Pacific red snapper is so plentiful in local waters ' that it can be taken fresh to restaurants only hours ', after being caught. Patrons prefer it to frozen sea * foods that must be thawed and thereby lose some of their delicate flavor. Pacific red snapper is from, the cod family, which is why the Florida red snapper people may have a pretty snappy legal ease. At any rate, the restaurant owners in this area would .be wise from now on to list the local fish on their menus as Pacific red snapper. The word Pacific theoretically will keep them clear of a pretty fishy legal situation. SEEN AND APPRECIATED BY A WANDERING I: 'A restaurant that often has fresh Pacific red snapper on the menu, for luncheon and dinner, is Walt's Wharf, 201 Main St., Seal Beach. Designed in a rustic fishing wharf motif, Walt's serves its entrees on paper plates. But it's one of the best seafood restaurants in this area, because No. I 1 chef Cliff Mobley has a technique for charcoal-broiling fish and shellfish that results in the most wonderful flavors. Red snapper is $2.95 on the dinner; so is the fish'kebab of shrimp, scallops and fish broiled on a skewer. Walt's has a big variety of ocean items. The facilities include a fish market where fresh fish are on sale. Another top dinner value, especially appropriate for those on budgets, is the $1.85 chicken pie dinner at Phillips Original Chicken Pie Shop, 737 Pine Ave. Manager Ray Moffett and his well-trained staff make those pies fresh daily and they are good. The dinner includes delicious coleslaw, creamy whipped potatoes, lots of gravy, hot biscuits, butter, honey and choice of cobbler, 'Jello or rice pudding. The Chicken Pie Shop has a big variety of hot and cold dishes and also a well- stocked delicatessen. It is open every day, including Saturday and Sunday, for luncheon and dinner. · Hamburger devotees from everywhere are aware that the Carl's Jr. restaurants in this area have unusually good char-broiled hamburgers. Did you know they also have terrific junibo chili cheese hot dogs for 70 cents? In this department's opinion, those chili dogs -with chopped onion and mustard,-- are gourmet combinations so delicious they ought to win some kind of prize. Carl's restaurants are takeout operations, but they also have modern dining rooms. The service is excellent. The Carl's Jr. restaurants are owned by Carl Karcher, an innovative restaurateur.
