THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

In 1916, 8,560 Kurdish
Jews were registered in Is-
rael (then Palestine). Some _
3,000 more arrived from
Iraq after Israeli . indepen-

dente. The Kurdish Jews
are now mostly farmers in
moshavim and their speech,
popularly called Kurdish, is
an Eastern Aramaic dialect.

The Best of Everything

(Continued from Page 35)
you'd scarcely know it at
The Red Cedars on Tele-
graph and Nine Mile Rd.
In 1977, its New Year's
Eve price was $24.95 per
person . . . Three years la-
ter, 1980, while everything
has been going up sky high,
Jack Freed and Ray Bresler
have raised the price only
$1 for the same deal that in-
cludes dinner, two wines,
champagne, tax and tip.
Also, the Monday
through Saturday specials
of New York Steak and Red
Snapper complete dinners
have been $6.95 for 21/2
years (since early 1978) .. .
In five years, they have
gone up only $2 . . . (It was
$4.95 in 1975).
WONDER WHY . . .
When ordering Egg Beaters
and whatever with low or no
cholesterol, so many wait-
resses bring butter instead
of margarine for your toast?
EVER HEAR OF a
Greek dinner theater? . .
There's half of one now .at
Rudy's in Rochester on
Main St. . . . also known as
Greektown North . . . Only
the comedy, "Same Time,
Next Year isn't Greek.
WALL-TO-WALL
PEOPLE are making
Jakks on Greenfield and 10
Mile a came-back-to-see-
you-again place . . . with
new owner Dick LaCombe.
Dinner is excellent .. .
especially with waitresses

like Donna Platt . . . very ef-
ficient, courteous, coopera-
tive, and a lot of customer
know-how.
Chuck Formosa still
heads the all-new, enlarged
and modern-style kitchen
. . . We had a piece of white
fish there worthy of raving
about . . . not a single bone
. . . and delicately but firmly
lifted onto the fork while its
skin remained on the plate.
The Farmer's-Style ap-
petizer at the salad bar
(radishes, cucumbers
and tomatoes in a de-
lightful dressing), salad
made by Donna from the
salad bar, garlic bread,
mushroom barley soup
and Chuck's crispy cot-
tage fried potatoes.

The evening was like a
New Year's Eve . . . Every
seat was filled . . . and
people were standing three
deep at the bar.
Carl Steger's dinner
music proved ever more his
ability as a pianist . . . The
ripplings of his fingers pre-
sented a well-balanced
array of melodies to please
everyone . . . as he tickled
the keys with elaborate de-
xterity.
IT'S BEEN MANY years
since Billy Rose and the
Gypsies played in the back
room at Grecian Gardens
. . . Now there's live music
again on Monroe Street.
Jim Constand has re-
opened "The Back Room" at
his Grecian Gardens for
public enjoyment of his fine
Greek food plus music and
dancing waiters . . . every
Thursday and Friday eve-
ning.
Jim, also owner of Jim's
Garage, bought Grecian
Gardens two years ago . . .
At the time, the restaurant
was as well known for the
illegal back room activities
conducted after hours by the
former owners as it was for
serving good Greek food .. .
Jim gambled and bought
it, taking a low profile in
creating any new
awarenesses about the res-
taurant . . . Any inherent
frustrations were tempered
by the knowledge that once
the heat died down, the
famous bill of fare and the
true Greek tradition of Gre-
cian Gardens would . come
back into focus . . . All he
needed was time and pa-
tience .. .
The two-year waiting
period wasn't too difficult . .
He had the support of a mul-
titude of regular customers
. . . lawyers, doctors, busi-
ness and political leaders,
judges, other restaurant
owners, famous TV and
newspaper personalities
and popular figures from
the world of sports.
Gino, a musician who in
Greek circles is considered
among the best, heads up
the bouzouki group .. .
Two waiters who may not
excel in being waiters, but
also in sharing fun Greek
traditions with their cus-
tomers, were chosen by Jim
to lead the troupes in "The
Back Room," which seats
