The Best of Everything

(Continued from Page 29)
many women sipping white
wine or frothy drinks mixed
with strawberries, ice
cream and Amaretto.
Speaking of licenses to
sell beer, wine and whiskey,
Healthy Jones on North-
western Highway got the of-
ficial thumbs down a few
month ago on its bid for the
profitable, much sought
after permit to sell the hard
stuff. The barley and hops in
beer may be nutritious and
wine may be fine, but the
powers-that-be decided
health foods and alcohol
don't belong on the same
menu.
Owners Don and
Betty Wittenberg were
quoted as saying the
lack of a license to sell
beer and wine doesn't
keep the steady flow of
customers away and
that's obvious. The Wit-
tenbergs weren't in-
terested in serving booze,
but there's no such thing
in Southfield as a tavern
license which restricts
what customers imbibe.
Healthy Jones is a
vitamin-packed success
with dozens of meatless dis-
hes. Anything that can be
done with vegetables and
more is done in this atmos-
phere of vim, vigor and vit-
ality.
Have you ever wondered
why some restaurants close
their doors after enjoying
many years of success?
Stouffer's at the Northland
Center closed last summer
after 25 years in business.
The long lines of lunch and
dinner customers attested
to the good if not plentiful

IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN!

This Is Our Way Of Saying THANK YOU For Letting

Israel's labor force is cur-
rently more than four times
what it was in 1948. The

meals at the popular, con-
veniently located restau-
rant until the past few
years.
William Black, man-
ager of Stouffer's,
claimed declining profits
forced restaurant offi-
cials to close the facility.
The lease ran out and the
building was much larger
than the volume, he said,
adding that the company
would direct its efforts
toward its smaller, spe-
cialty restaurants.
Black said the restaurant
wasn't losing money but ex-
perienced a definite drop in
guests in the last four or five
years. Lunchtime business
was good, he maintained,
but dinner customers were
mainly retirees on fixed in-
comes who didn't want to
prepare meals at home. The
regulars still came, he said,
but not as frequently.
Stouffer's remodeled
its Northland Inn restau-
rant across the street in
hopes of attracting the
closed dining spot's loyal
customers, Black said.
But the sixth floor facility
in the hotel doesn't ap-
pear to be attracting as
many customers as it
used to.
Trio in the 12 Mile-
Northweatern area of
Southfield was another res-
taurant casualty. One early
mistake was the $10 menu
which wasn't bad if you or-
dered steak but was a turn-
off to those who had to pay
the same price for chicken
or fish. That situation was
remedied, but the three-
room eatery continued to
operate beset with financial
snags.
The restaurant finally
went into Chapter 11 and
has since been taken over by
FTD. The Meyersons, who
owned the Trio and invested
a lot of green stuff into it,
also closed the doors of its
once popular Scotch & Sir-
loin on Northwestern
Highway in Detroit.
The "Scotch," where the
elite met to eat, meet and be
entertained in a gala, noisy
atmosphere, is now Fogo's
Seafood and Spirits. The
restaurant features a raw
bar and seafood prepared in
a dozen different ways.
But we miss Carl Steger
and his piano bar. Carl
greeted the regulars by
name, sang their favorite
songs and generally livened
up the "Scotch," contribut-
ing to its reputation as a fun
place.
One final observation —
restaurants may come and
go but there certainly isn't a
dearth of liquor-serving or
"dry" dining establish-
ments in Southfield's 12
Mile-Northwestern area.
Some officials call it "res-
taurant row," others call it
"honky tonk" but supping
and sipping spots in the
area keep multiplying like
wild mushrooms. If you're
bored some Sunday after-
noon, take a ride out 12
Mile-Northwestern way
and count the bars and
eateries.

country's biggest employer
is public services with some
370,000 employees.
