The Tastini .ace

The Best of Everything

By Danny Raskin

LOOKS LIKE A CUTE
house on a hill . . . but it's
much more . . . Alfredo's,
Detroit's latest addition to
the local dining out boom,
overlooks Eight Mile Rd., on
the south side of the street
. . . between Lahser and
Telegraph . . . and is
probably the exact place so
many people have been
looking for quite a while
. . . excellent food and ser-
vice in a cozy, intimate at-
mosphere . . . at prices they
can afford to pay.
Our complete meal was
$5.95 . . . including a thick
minestrone soup with very
good flavor (you have choice
of this or onion), a trip to
Michigan's only combined
salad and antipasto bar
with Italian cheeses, meats
and all the trimmings,
bread basket (or taste the
delicious cheese and garlic
bread), side of spaghetti
with a fresh tasty sauce . . .
and entree of Veal Scalop-
pini cooked in Marsala wine
that you know had to be
made by a super profes-
sional . . . and it was . . .
Chef Georgio Rinaldi is one
of America's tops when it
comes to Italian food . . .
We also tasted Frieda's Veal
Picante ($5.95) and it was
extremely good.
Soft background music
enhances the romantic at-
mosphere with candle
lighting and red checkered
tablecloths . . . The
warm, comfortable sur-
roundings are quietly done
in elegant taste . . . with
110 seating mainly booths
and some tables for those
who prefer them . . .
Trellises with interwoven
vines, lattice dividers be-
tween booths and soft
lighting make Alfredo's a
complete opposite with the
place that preceded it.
We also enjoyed a bottle
of chablis Blanc white wine
($4) . . . and at another
table, a couple was
astounded at being able to
get a full bottle of Blue Nun
Liebfraumilch for only
$6.50.
Most of the complete
dinners . . . nine veal dis-
hes and nine seafood
choices, are $5.95 . . .
Higher, but still very much
within reason, are the
broiler items like steak . . .
Children 6 to 10 pay half
price . . . and there is no
charge for youngsters 5 and
under.
Alfredo's, on W. Eight
Mile between Lahser and
Telegraph, ;has much to
offer . . . and at most
reasonable prices . . . The
food *is choice and with
waitresses like Joyce
Michaels among others . . .
plus the chef stylings of
Georgio Rinaldi, who could
ask for much more?
In these days of inflated
food prices, the idea of a
complete Italian or seafood
dinner menu for $5.95 may
be unheard of, but if our
experience there is any
criteria. Alfredo's should be
heard about very loud and
clear.
Hours are 11 to 11
Tuesday through Thursday,
11 to 1. Fridays, 5 to 1

1
Saturdays and 2 to 10 Sun-
days.
DID YOU SEE Phyllis
Diller recently on television,
with her hair all frizzled like
she had gotten caught in a
windmill? . . . Brought to
mind the late Jack Benny's
favorite about Phyllis . . .
"She looks like someone 30
seconds after the switch has
been pulled."
SEEING STARS . . .
Pianist Ronnie Phillips in
the Alley Lounge at Vit-
torio's, Plymouth Rd. at
Farmington Rd. . . . Ver-
satile Mike Taylor and his
group giving localites a last
chance to see them Satur-
day night at Brunetti's, 12
Mile and Franklin Rd.,
before opening Aug. 2 at the
Aladdin in Las Vegas .. .
New McKinney's Cotton
Pickers are tonight's
(Friday) attraction at the
P'Jazz concert on terrace of
Hotel Pontchartrain . .
Carl Steger on the keyboard
at Scotch 'n Sirloin, James
Couzens and Greenfield . .
Pat Flowers still tickling
the 88 at Danish Inn, Grand
River in Farmington . . .
Bobby Laurel at the Trio,
Northwestern and Franklin
Rd.
EVER HAD A corned
beef burger? . . . It was the
doodling-around brainchild
of Bernie Litt when he had
Billy's Delicatessen on
Livernois and Seven Mile
. . . It's exactly what the
name suggests, grilled and
served on a sesame seed bun
with lettuce and Russian
dressing.
SOLEMNLY THE
waiter brought .the steak
"I said well done,
waiter, well done!" . . .
"Thank you, sir, That's the
first compliment I've had in
a long time."
EXPECTED OPENING
of the new Gould's Beef
Buffet on 12 Mile and
Northwestern, in the
Franklin Shopping Center,
should be Sept. 1 . . . The
6,000 square footer is owned
by Jerry Gould and will seat
220 people.
LOTS OF FOLKS living
in the area around, but not
too many know of a plea-
sant little Chinese
restaurant on Cass Lake Rd.
in Keego Harbor . . . Sing
Lau is a family affair, nine
months old, with about 110
seating . . Cooking is done
by Sing Lau himself, wife
Kwok Ho is a waitress and
daughter Joy the cashier
. . . It is between Orchard
Lake Rd. and Elizabeth
Lake Rd. •
HERE'S
AN
INTERESTING DRINK
. . . It's called a Blood and
Sand . . . Take 'i. Scotch
whiskey, lA cherry brandy,
i./4 sweet vermouth and '4
orange juice . . . Stir well
with ice and strain into
glass.
HAPPINESS IS . . . for
the customers at Jakk's
Lounge and Restaurant,
Greenfield and 10 Mile . . .
having very fine piano bar
stylist Jo Thompson back
from her vacation . . . Cer-
tainly a most welcomed
return for all.
