Winter will soon be behind us and spring will come. All over town, restaurateurs and mixologists are planning for their spring comeback. My first choice for a good meal is Café Sole, because the new owners, Salvatore and Alessandra Attanasio are lovely and the new menu is top notch. Salvatore bakes fresh bread several times a day. Sporadic specials include osso buco, Italian meatloaf and wonderful pastas. Great service. The Flintridge Proper introduced a daily Happy Hour, launched four new spring cocktails and posted most of the recipes online at www.theproper.com.

Gardens across the nation participated Friday in National Public Gardens Day, an event designed to raise awareness of public gardens and their role in promoting education and environmental stewardship in the communities they serve. In the spirit of the occasion, Descanso Gardens gave visitors a peek inside its own Harvest Garden, a veritable “secret garden” that has been in operation for nearly 60 years but has never opened its gates to the public. The Harvest Garden gives local students between the ages of ages 8 and 22 who are living with disabilities a chance to roll up their sleeves, get their hands dirty and learn about the long journey involved in getting food from its source to the plate.
