First. a bow to Danny
Raskin who so graciously
asked us to be his guest
columnists this week — and
for a very good reason: he
and Frieda have taken off
for warmer climes leaving
behind the less fortunate to
battle Michigan's wind-chill
factor.
But enough self pity! As
the authors of the restau-
rant guide, "Meet,- Eat &
Enjoy Greater Detroit",
we're happy to take this
opportunity to answer some
of the questions were most
frequently asked about our-
selves and our book and,
hopefully. clear up any mis-
conceptions. We've an-
swered these questions on
radio, television, at dozens
of personal appearances in
various bookstores and in
response to letters from our
readers. So here goes, on
behalf of Danny and The
Jewish News.

How did you two get
together and how did you
get the idea for the book?"

THE FOOD

As luck would have it, we
met in a kitchen with food
talk taking precedence over
all else; i.e.: the weather,
politics, religion and, sex. A
mutual love of good food,
travel, the restaurant scene
and the frustrations encoun:
tered with other eating out
guides led to "M, E, & E G
D" with its reprints of din-
ner menus from the "bet-
ter" restaurants in South-
eastern Michgian.
The whole idea was to
create a -hobby" for Mary
Conway and thus spare her
the boredom of the "Stitch
and Bitch" groups. Little
did we know that 30,000 cop-
ies of the book would be sold

that first year. This "hob
by" became a full-time busi-
ness leading to a completely
new, revised edition each
year.
Our all new 1978 edition is
our third book.

"Why don't you rate the
restaurants?"

If, in balance. we do not
like a restaurant, it does not
RATE a place in "Meet,
Eat. & Enjoy Great De-
troit". In an average year,
in fact, about 75 percent of
the places we visit for the
first time do not rate a
listing due to their very or-
dinary (or just plain bad)
food, service and atmos-
phere.
We feel you can rate a
meal — that's one thing —
but what may be a four-star
triumph one day can just as
easily turn into a no-star
disaster the next time
around. The rapid turnover .
of chefs and management
on the ever-changing restau-
rant scene makes the rating
game a very risky affair
indeed.

"What do you do to avoid
gaining weight since you eat
out so often?"
Next question.
.

Seriously, though, there
are a few tricks we've
learned to keep the weight
factor down to a semi-dull
roar: broiled fish is a good
indication of a restaurant's
culinary abilities and is not
fattening (if you skip the
tartar sauce).
Sharing one salad be-
tween the two of us and
sampling, not gorging, on
each others choices is an-
other shortcut to waistline
watching as is keeping a -
healthy respect for the dam-
age an extra roll or Brandy
Alexander can do to the
bod.

"What do you do when all
else fails and you still are
gaining weight?"

You go to a glamour fat
farm as did Mary Conway.
It is written up in the 1978
"M, E & E G D" in titillat-
ing detail.

"How does Detroit com-
pare with other cities?"

For three years we've
been touting Detroit as the
NUMBER ONE eating area
in the country — consid-
ering everything — the
number of fine places to
eat, extraordinary variety,
quality, service, surround-
ings, entertainment, great
values and the wide area
(5,000 plus square miles)
where you can meet friends,
eat fine food and enjoy our
ethnic heritage.
And to further underscore
our point, James Beard, in
a recent Saturday Evening
Post article on Detroit res-
taurants, was quoted as
saying he considers Detroit
number three — behind
New York and San Fran-
cisco. But we still think the
Motor City is numero uno.
