GATEHOUSE GOES ON . . . Remember what we told you a few weeks back about The Gatehouse closing on July 15? Well, as you might have noticed if you've taken a recent evening stroll by 265 Lytton Ave., the landmark restaurant is still open for dinner. So, what of the building's future owner Jeremiah Tower and his plans for Stars? He still plans to remodel the building--once a funeral parlor--for a new outpost of his tony eating establishment. It's just going to happen a little later than previously expected, probably toward the end of the year. In the restaurant biz, it's never over 'til it's over. We'll keep you posted.

A NIGHT IN PERU . . . On most evenings, Palo Alto Joe's is where you go for a taste of Italy. This Sunday, July 31, the restaurant and lounge at 3750 Fabian Way offers the tastes and tunes of Peru as it hosts an evening of live dance music from Jorge del Castillo and Julio Bravo, as well as "the best Peruvian cuisine in the South Bay." (After all, how often does an Italian restaurant get to make this claim?) Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Call 493-3101.

A TOMATO TALK . . . Jesse Cool, owner of Flea Street Cafe in Menlo Park and Two Fools Cafe in Half Moon Bay, has a slick cookbook out called "Tomatoes: A Country Garden Cookbook." Cool will give a tomato tasting and talk at 8 p.m. Aug. 18 at Printers Inc., 310 California Ave., Palo Alto. For more information, call Printers at 327-6500.
