The Best of Everything

WENT OUT to the
Squire's Table on Commerce
Lake Rd., to see how that
New York Strip Steak din-
ner was at $4.95 Mondays
through Thursdays . . .
This was our first visit back
to the Squire's Table since
new chef John Kerersi is
there . . . The steak was
tastefully tender and very
much worth the price.
Our fine waitress, young
Debbie Cleal, was efficient,
pleasant and gracious . . .
making our salads with the
creative artistry that tray
caterers talk about . . The
steak dinner includes soup
or juice (we had delicious
navy bean soup), salad bar
and homemade bread, ba-
gels, etc.
Norm LePage's Squire's
Table is still one of the most
beautiful intimate spots ar-
ound . . . with quiet elegance
for comfortable dining.
Entertainer Bob Posch,
who has been somewhat of a
permanent fixture, so to
speak, will be leaving April
10 . . . and May 1 the down-
stairs seating 175 will be-
come what Manager Dennis
Behrend says could be one
of the most lavish discos in
America . . . Dining will, of
course, continue upstairs.
Dennis is a genial gentle-
man, and has been at
Squire's Table since it was
opened five years ago by
Larry Bongiovanni . . . and
purchased three years ago
by Norm LePage.
CONTRARY TO wrong
thoughts . . . Angel's Hour
Glass on W. McNichols is
not closed for dinner every
night of the week . . . They
serve good dinners on Mon-
day, Tuesday and Wednes-
day . . . and lunch Monday
through Friday . . . Enter-
tainment-wise, Larry San-
tos is still doing a magnifi-
cent job Thursday, Friday
and Saturday evenings . . .
Jimmy Cohen is at the piano
on Monday and Tuesday
. . . and the Tucker-Free-
man Show is on Wednes-
days, with two young gents
doing country-western, old-
ies and goodies, risque stuff
and comedy.
CHUCK MUER'S River
Crab in St. Clair Shores is
closed for remodeling.
YOU KNOW. IT'S
springtime when Ole Chris-
tensen dusts off his beret
and prepares to open the
Sidewalk Cafe at Hotel
Pontchartrain . . . Date is
May 10 for this honest-to-
goodness outdoor cafe at the
Pontch.
THERE'S FUNDAY ev-
ery Monday at Northville
Charley's . . . with cook
Dave Duey donning his re-
galia and becoming DeeDee
the Clown . . . Rumpus
room is full of kids who love
to watch DeeDee make ani-
mals out of balloons for
them.
10,817 CLAMS were
downed . . . and $1,081.70
raised for Sister Arline
Schmeer's search for a
clam-related cure for cancer
. . . The clam-eater's gift of
five cents per clam was
matched by Chuck Muer,
owner of three restaurants
in .Michigan and three in
Ohio that had the campaign

,

from Dec. 15 to Feb. 29 .. .
A Dominican nun, Dr.
Schmeer is director of mar-
ine studies at the American
Medical Center, Denver,
Colo.. . . Her 14-year study
has shown that a substance
called mercenene, found in
littleneck, cherrystone and
quahog clams, kills human
cancer cells in tissue scul-
ture.
LATEST FALSE RU-
MOR . . . and very false
is that Carl Rosenfeld
and Carl's Chop House has
purchased the Trio on
Northwestern.
DID YOU KNOW that
all those antique-looking
dishes hanging high on the
walls at The Gallery on W.
10 Mile Rd. are continually
taken down and washed?
. . . That's why they're al-
ways gleaming . . . Owner
Stephan Becharas is doing
an excellent job with his
fine establishment . . . so
very clean.
NEW RESTAURANT
and cocktail lounge is called
Smart Alex . . . at the mar-
ketplace of Wonderland
Shopping Center, Plymouth
and Middlebelt in Livonia.
MAIL DEPT. . . . from
Bill Kaufman of Kaufman's
Restaurant Supply . . .
"Just finished your column
and the paragraph headed
"Some thoughts" is true. I
might add for best in pas-
tries and banana pies, Staf-
ford's Restaurants are tops.
Their latest place in the Or-
chard Mall Shopping Center
at Orchard Lake and Maple
is excellent."
NEW ADDITION TO
Dominico's Italian-Ameri-
can eatery on Coolidge in
Berkley is completed .. .
for showers, parties, recep-
tions, etc. . . . It's Domini-
co's new Romanesque
Room.
TENUTA'S IS a Mexican
restaurant on W. Huron
across from Pontiac Gen-
eral Hospital . . . Origi-
nally seated only 50 people
but now can handle 125.
THE GOLDEN MUSH-
ROOM has not been sold
. . . and isn't for sale, says
owner Reid Ashton.
MAKING SOME
ROUNDS . . . Samuels
Bros. Cafeteria, Eastern
Market . . . bustling deli
popular for early breakfasts
or hearty sandwiches from
hamburger to triple-deckers
to full plate lunches . . .
Little Cafe, Gratiot . . .
Hearty, delicious meals
once served in West Ger-
many's Ruhr Valley neigh-
borhood restaurants can be
enjoyed in authentic Ger-
man atmosphere . . . Bots-
ford Inn, Grand River . . .
A step into the historic past
. . . Michigan's oldest con-
tinuously-operated inn con-
tains the same gracious at-
mosphere, furnishings,
antiques as when recon-
structed by Henry Ford I
for his wife Clara.
DeLuca, Woodward at
11 1/2 Mile . . . An oil mural
of small Italian village of
Atina, 50 miles north of
Rome, dominates . . . In
corner is small house which
bartender explains is the
home where owner Dennis
DeLuca was born . . .

April 9, 1976 39

By Danny Raskin

Shalea Inn, Auburn Road,
Auburn Heights . . . Un-
pretentious exterior makes
this eatery an overlooked
gem . . . Three miles from
Rochester's Meadowbrook
Theater . . . Inside is warm
and intimate . . . The
Vineyards - Franklin Rd.
and Northwestern . . .
Stained glass window, barn-
yard walls, vaulted ceiling
give interior .a wine cellar
feel, with exceUent dining
experience.
Ted's, Woodward and
Square Lake Rd. . . . It's
quite a jump from Michi-
gan's first drive-in restau-
rant in 1934 to a full-course
dinner served on pewter
plates, with wine list and
fancy bar . . . Duffy's,
Cooley Lake Rd. in Union
Lake . . . Seemingly located
in middle of nowhere, Duf-
fy's nevertheless has an en-
thusiastic following . . .
Decor is rustic, including
piano bar with barrel seats
where diners await reserva-
tions while listening to live
entertainment.
The King's Table, First
National Bank Bldg. down-
town . . . Serves lunch only,
but King Arthur would have
been at home in the cool,
dim blue interior with
beamed ceilings, leaded
stained-glass windows . . .
Friendly waitresses com-
plete with English accent
take diner's order . .. May-
field Chop House, Griswold
. . . Old-time masculine sa-
loon atmosphere. Paintings
hang from wood-paneled
walls with polished mahog-
any bar, booths, tables.
New Hellas, Monroe in
Greektown . . . Greek music
on jukebox, hanging grapes,
Doric columns, unpreten-
tious ... New Hellas is prob-
ably best of many Greek-
town restaurants . . .
Pontchartrain Wine Cel-
lars, W. Larned . . One of
Midwest's better restau-
rants .. . Specializes in
European dishes, will de-
light both exacting gour-
mets and seekers of unusual
atmosphere . . . Sheik
Cafe, E. Lafayette . . .
Plain Middle East motif,
probably best Lebanese food
in town . . . El Sol, W. Ver-
nor . . . Wall-size painting
of Don Quixote dominates
Mediterranean style restau-
rant with Spanish-Mexican-
Cuban menu . . . Kostere's
W. 8 Mile Rd., west of Tele-
graph . . . Dark, warm,
modern roadhouse atmos-
phere with dramatic light-
ing from spots in a solid
dark ceiling, modern hang-
ing fixtures.
Spanish Colonial Room,
10 Mile and Northwestern
. . . Decorated to give inti-
mate atmosphere, with deep
red carpets, dark paneled
walls, beamed ceilings, red
leather booths . .. The
Pagoda, W. Maple, Claw-
son . . . Don't expect great
Chinese influence . . . Only
thing resembling.name be-
sides egg-drop soup is mod-
ern pagoda shape of build-
ing . . . Main dining room
has brick walls, curved
wood-beamed ceiling shaped
to pagoda walls . . .
Moy's Japanese Steak
House, Middlebelt at Six

Mile .. . Probably most
unusual Japanese dining
experience in Detroit . . .
Food cooked on large grill in
center of table by one of var-
ious chefs imported from
Japan . . . Chef does ballet,
flourishing long knives,
spatulas to thin-cut mush-
rooms, onions, green pep-
per, tender sirloin, shrimp
which he seasons, cooks
lightly . : . Kopitzki's ,
Mack at Devonshire . . .Dif-
ferent menu every day,
carefully prepared fobd,
right, home-cooked flavor
. . . Outside looks gently
rustic; inside atmosphere
neat, clean . . . Congenial,
friendly service . . .
Sinbad's, St. Clair at
River . . . Views of Detroit
River makes up for rugged
non-decor here . . . Lines
each night prove popularity
. . . Some diners will soon
be arriving by boat . . .
Ivanhoe Cafe, Joseph Cam-
pau at Frederick . . . May
be best fried perch in town
at fine, offbeat family res-
taurant hiding modestly in
quiet, predominately Polish
residential neighborhood
. . . Called "Fish House" by
regular patrons . . . closed
Saturday and Sunday.
