Jon Gets Fred: Remember when Fred Eric of Vida in Los Feliz wanted to take over the Tom Bergin's location and make it a steak house called Jeeve's Grill Club? His leasing deal fell through, but he's still going to get his own steak house--only at Dominick's in West Hollywood. Dominick's owner Jon Sidell recently split with his partners and offered Eric a stake, as it were, in Dominick's, so Eric will install his steak menu there along with a former sous-chef of his, Matt Dickson, in about two weeks. Says Eric, "We're going to maintain a level of supper club, but the emphasis will be on the supper, not the club." Vida's sommelier, Sylvie Lalay, will create Dominick's new wine list.
* Dominick's, 8715 Beverly Blvd., West Hollywood; (310) 557-1654.
Beachfront Bay House: Kicking off the attempted revitalization of Redondo Beach Pier is the opening of Kincaid's Bay House, which serves dishes like rock-salt-roasted prime rib and grilled salmon--and drinks like martinis and Rob Roys. Decor runs to marble, mirrors and warm woods, plus a 360-decree view of the ocean. The patio just opened up recently.

What a Hoot: As of Wednesday, even more buxom babes are strutting around Santa Monica in scanty clothing. How's that? A Hooters restaurant has opened just off the Third Street Promenade. The combination of spicy chicken wings and voluptuous waitresses in midriff-baring T-shirts has added up to 230 Hooters locations around the world. And this is too perfect--one of the owners of this first L.A. County location is Douglas Schwartz, executive producer and co-creator of "Baywatch." He got interested in the concept when he was in Florida several years ago working on a project where the whole company used to relax at Hooters. "The reason it's such a fun concept," he says, "is that the waitresses are very interactive with the customers." And where else but L.A. can you find such a large pool of beautiful women willing to wear short shorts? Schwartz and two partners plan to open eight more Hooters here, beginning with Long Beach, Pasadena and Northridge locations. The Santa Monica Hooters will be open for lunch and dinner every day beginning at 11 a.m.
* Hooters, 321 Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica; (310) 458-7555.
