    Enjoy dishes from The Grand Hotel Quisisana of Capri at the Santa Monica landmark, from Jan. 29 through Feb. 3 at Catch.

    THE CHANCE TO ZIP OVER TO CAPRI... for a night? We're headed for the closet, the one holding our suitcase, right now. But, alas, there is work, and there are appointments, and there are the people we tend to and love, and there are budgets, and there is life, with its notable non-stoppery in all things. Which doesn't necessarily mean that a trip to the idyllic isle is out of the question, one day, but it does mean that such a getaway may take some planning, and waiting, and anticipating.

It's a hotel partnership of the most storied level, with two historic properties, located on different continents, uniting in a special event spotlighting great food, an ocean-exquisite setting at Casa del Mar, and all of the details and delights that come from dining at a grand hotel. But, in this instance, you're dining at two grand hotels, in a sense, at the same time, making for one memorable Capri-meets-Santa-Monica evening.
