Anybody who dropped in to Sugar Reef years ago could go back today and suffer no future shock: Nothing seems to change - the open-air restaurant on the Hollywood Broadwalk still follows a rhythm as soothing and predictable as the sea its ocean-colored rooms open out on.

An eclectic wine list offers lots of vin by the half bottle. The staff patters in polyglot tongues - Spanish, French, Russian, and if you show up twice, you'll find yourself inducted into a coterie of beloved regulars.
