Malibu Court Criminal Docket

The scene: A minimalist-chic restaurant with starched white tablecloths and a crisply suited waitstaff.

The defendant: The first last name in refined Chinese cuisine, Mr. Chow.

The accusation: Having first imported traditional Beijing recipes and creative dishes to Beverly Hills in 1974, the illustrious restaurateur is charged with opening a glamorous, seaside outpost in the Malibu Country Mart.

Trusted accomplices, including green prawns, Ma Mignon (marinated filet), and Beijing duck (roasted to order), are under indictment for aiding and abetting.

A champagne trolley, dessert cart (chocolate fondant, Key lime cheesecake), and custom cocktails have been held for questioning.

The sleek eatery reportedly deals outstanding fare to a sold-out crowd on a nightly basis.

The verdict: Further evidence required. Table for two, please.
