HOT SPOTS : JAWS IN TORTILLA.
Sharky's, 13238 Burbank Blvd., Sherman Oaks, (818) 785-2533. (Also in Northridge and Tarzana.) Fresh and fast, here's tasty shark, mahi mahi, shrimp, chicken and steak stuffed in burritos, tacos, tostadas and quesadillas. Ole. Ole.
Spago, 1114 Horne, West Hollywood, (310) 652-4025. Also in Tokyo, Mexico City, Las Vegas and Chicago and now in Beverly Hills at 176 N. Canon Drive, (310) 385-0880. Wolfgang Puck's original starship, replete with a compelling Barbara Lazaroff-designed rear dining room, now has a posher sibling across town that beguiles lunchers, patio diners and even serves up some homey Austrian ``Puckfare.'' Both continue to sail merrily along as nationally acclaimed nosheries and rendezvous of the famous. Where else would you find a fresh white truffle (in season) pizza?
Raw and frenetic
Teru Sushi, 11940 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, (818) 763-8201. This is the original hyperactive sushi bar that began the craze for raw fish locally. It's the long-running hit theatrical food phenomenon on Ventura Boulevard. It's a scream all right. With a Japanese accent, of course.
Borscht in Burbank
Arbat Golden Palace, 711 S. San Fernando Blvd., Burbank, (818) 558-1358. Enjoy a spectacular Muscovite version of a Vegas-style floor show and a banquet of tasty Russian-accented food with premium vodka included in the price.
Water Grill, 544 S. Grand Ave., Los Angeles, (213) 891-0900. The definitive oceanfare destination when downtown, this clubby rendezvous is often picked as the number one for fish in L.A.
Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill, 5050 Cornell Road, Agoura Hills, (818) 597-8900. (Also 540 New Los Angeles Ave., Moorpark, (805) 523-7253, and Camarillo.) It's a true beef mecca at moderate tariff where the tri-tip's a trip, the porterhouse and prime rib are pretty and pink and a pound in weight, and the crispy string onions a blast. Lots of food. Lots of taste. And lots of customers.
