IN SO MANY instances,
when a person hears the
mention of Mexican food, he
or she almost immediately
thinks of hot spicy cuisine
. .. To some, it's great . . . To
others, it's a turnoff . . . The
happy in-between medium
has often been attempted
but over-zealous chefs who
think that Mexican food
must be spicy to be good, are
little more than cooks who
should but don't know bet-
ter.
Along comes a place like
Maximilian's . . . on Wood-
ward near 14 Mile in Royal
Oak . . . on site of the former
Yassoo Greek Village .. .
where the happy in-
between medium has been
achieved . . . People who
love Mexican food but not
too spicy can have this .. .
Those who like it spicy can
also have their desire . . . In
fact, there's a bottle of spicy
stuff at each table or booth
for folks who want a burn-
ing glow.
As for myself, I don't like
it too hot, and so the experi-
ence at Maximilian's was an
interesting and enjoyable
one . . . The menu may be

limited, but everything is
made properly and delici-
ously delightful.
And if you're expecting
to go to a strictly Mexican
restaurant, Maximilian's
is not that place ... The
emphasis is on south of
the border dining . . . but
some of the American
cuisine is also quite good
. .. Filets with made to
order Bearnaise sauce
are most popular ...
Once a week there's liver
and onions or Crab Louie
... and every couple of
weeks are chicken and
spinach crepes and Eggs
Benedict.
I had a delicious corn
chowder soup . . . and tasted
some of the excellent, full
bodied cold Gazpacho soup
. . . Then some real good
cheezy flavored potato skins
with small quantities left in
them.. . . a mute but strong
reminder that these are
freshly cut potatoes . . . not
frozen shells . . . You'll love
the Cheese Crisp . . . not
found anywhere else . . . It
looks like a small pizza and
can be gotten with or with-
out Mexican sausage since
everything at Maximilian's
is made to order . . . If you've
never had Cheese Crisp, it is
a very delightful taste ex-
perience in itself . . .
Guacamole and sour cream
is served with all starters
(appetizers) . . . some of
which almost look like
meals themselves.
Maximilian's seats 90 in
the restaurant and 40 in the
bar with standup finger ta-
bles . . . The dining room
decor is an outdoor garden
atmosphere to give a patio
effect with lattice work
made of reeds . . . booths and
tables . . . and hanging
plants.
My main entree was
Chimichanga with chicken
(it can also be gotten with
beef) . . . and Maximilian's
is one of the few places that
makes it right . . . Mind you
now, none of the food is
'.overly spiced . . . That's up
to you with hot sauce on the
table.
And if you've heard
that this is strictly a Mex-
ican restaurant .
there's nothing more
American than the ham-
burgers galore ... or
scrod in white wine
saute.
Maximilain's was open
April 10, by attorneys
Harry Eisenberg and Mark
Papazian and restaurateur
Mike Green.
Their chef, Craig "Skip"
Julius is well-known to
many Detroiters . . . A
member of Michigan Chefs
de Cuisine, he had prev-
iously only made a couple of
Mexican dishes . . . How-
ever, after going to' the li-
brary and reading book
after book, there's very lit-
tle "Skip" can't now make in
the way of Mexican food .. .
He's a good kitchen master
because no matter how
much he knows, "Skip" is
still willing to learn . . . Too
many chefs set in their own
