The Best of Everything)

(Continued from Page 32)
places we visit for the first
time do not rate a listing
due to their very ordinary
food, service and atmos-
phere. This year we checked
out over 200 new places. Olt
many of these visits we can't
help remembering David
McCord's Epitaph for The
Waiter, "By and by, God
caught his eye," and think
that the same sentiments
should apply to the owners
of many of these restau-
rants; hopefully sooner than
later.
There are also a number
of popular, well-publicized,
frequently reviewed restau-
rants or restaurant-related
personalities that are out of
the ordinary in a number of
respects, that have not
been, or are not now listed
in our books. They are con-
spicuously omitted since we
have, on repeated visits,
failed to really enjoy them.
A few we have learned to
despise. They now fall into
seven general categories:
So-So New Places —
imaginatively decorated,
with interesting menus, but
weak kitchens/weak service
(goOd ideas - poor execu-
tion).
Sentimental Favorites
— outwardly much the
same, in fact having gone
down-hill-in-a-hand-basket
(surviving on nostalgia and
the ability to turn out an oc-
casional superb meal for as-
sorted VIP's). ,
The Haute-Cuisine
Personalities — great
food, arrogant, petulant and
intimidating managements
(you're not a guest here;
they're doing you a favor by
admitting you to the
presence of the Great Per-
son).
The "High-Class" Net-
works—several expensive
branches, make-believe
service, trite, bland, with
repetitive food and decor.
The Absentee •and-
lords/Over Computer-
ized/Over Conglomera-
portions
tized

'

measured to a mil-
lionth of a gram; ingre-
dients and dishes that fol-
low commodity market fluc-
tuations rather than the
chef's tastebuds; frozen-
packaged and trucked to
Detroit frpm X-to-Nth-
power-miles away; served
up in "designer" structures
by high-turnover help de-
cked out in "theme" cos-
tumes from totally fraudu-
lent menus.
The Yo-Yos — up and
down, up and down; bad
lunch, good dinner; good
lulich, bad dinner; bad-bad;
good-good (the winners for
inconsistency - absolutely
unreliable).
The Overly Successful
Newcomers — half a hand-
ful of good years, good food,
good service, good values;
now embarked on expan-
sion at any cost (to the pub-
lic) and not minding the
store ("more to be pitied
than censured").
We are frequently asked
about many of these restau-
rants and to list their
names. It's a great tempta-
tion to throw a few well-
deserved stones at the dregs
of the big names. However,
our policy from the start has
been: "Say nothing, if we
can't say something good
about a place." So, "get thee
behind us temptation;" we'll
hold our tongues fora fourth
year.

Maccabi Defeated

BRUSSELS (JTA) —
Maccabi Tel Aviv was de-
feated by the Belgian team,
83-80, last week in a Euro-
pean Cup basketball game.
The Israeli team, which had
defeated Turkey earlier,
had been favored to win the
game.

Redemption, like a .liveli-
hood, must be earned each
day.
