Michael Brooks Is Director

freighter.
All this should tie the
kitchen up for at least a
month. After that, you can
always complain the smell
of paint makes you too sick
to cook.
If your dishwasher
leaks all over the kitchen
floor, the floor comes up
and you trip over it,
you've really struck pay
dirt. Falling on your
hands can put you out of
commission for at least a
week.
If all else fails, put a sur-
prise in your refrigerator —
baking soda to kill food
odors. The secret is to omit
the food. You may have to
resort to saying, "I deserve a
break today. Take me out to
McDonald's or the London
Chop House."
Rambling right along,
let's talk about restaurants.
They're not perfect but for
the most part are desirable
alternatives to cooking or
thinking of 1,000 excuses to
avoid it.
Meriwether's recently
came to Telegraph north of
10 Mile in Southfield bring-
ing with it a little bit of
England, a cocktail lounge
and six dining rooms. The
rooms are elegantly deco-
rated with turn-of-the-
century antiques and the
dining spot's special logo is
a black derby with a daisy in
its red hatband.
You can frequent the
most attractive restau-
rant with a highly-touted
bill-of-fare and order the
wrong thing. That's what
happened to us at
Meriwether's. We
thumbed through the
menu of specialties,
sandwiches, seasoned
burgers, "Mexican
Momentos," quiche and
crepes and settled for a
three-egg cheese
omelette which was done
to a burn.
Not caring for charred
eggs, we sent it back and it
was replaced with an
omelette blacker on the bot-
tom than the original. It
probably was the original —
an ever more well-done ver-
sion.
The manager apologized
profusely and explained
that the chef, who was obvi-
ously not big on preparing
omelettes but wouldn't
admit it, was being pink-
slipped. The manager gave
us a complimentary ticket
for a dinner for two and
we're sure to be back for a
second try.
Next time, we'll order the
highly-recommended San
Francisco Stir Fry, billed as
a favorite from the city by
the bay — a tempting mix of
chicken and fresh vegeta-
bles simmered in the wok
for a distinctive Oriental
flavor. That's one of
Meriwether's specialties for
$4.80. Prices are moderate
in this uniquely-decorated
restaurant where waiters
and waitresses are appro-
priately clad in
Edwardian-style costumes
and bartenders wear sport
vests and derbies.

For something differ-
ent in imaginative
cuisine, try the Ala Cart
Cafe in Applegate Square
on Northwestern at 12%
Mile in Southfield. If
you're diet-conscious but
tired of the usual slim
specials, this busy, de-
lightful restaurant
tempts you with a fresh
fruit salad and cottage
cheese in a parfait glass.
You'd never imagine any-
thing which looks so
good could be non-
fattening.
The parfait is chock full of
blueberries, melon, pineap-
ple, strawberries and other
colorful fresh fruits whip-
ped with cottage cheese.
We recommend salade
nicoise at Ala Cart. It's
chicken salad with al-
monds, white asparagus,
hard boiled eggs, black
olives and a delicious dres-
sing. You can't go wrong
with the well endowed-
salad bar or crabmeat and
artichoke omelette. It seems
a bit out of context that this
dining spot, which caters to
women shoppers at lun-
chtime, serves liquor. When
we were there, we noticed
