IN SPITE OF their repu-
tation for variety and inde-
pendence, Michigan's re-
staurants seemed to agree
on several approaches to
helping Michiganders
celebrate the holidays, ac-
corkling to a survey of the
1,800 members of the
Michigan Restaurant Asso-
ciation.
Almost all agreed that
New Year's Eve was the
biggest night of the year,
and most restaurants and
hotels had special menus
and entertainment pack-
ages . . . The most popular

Eve? Champagne as al-
ways.
But it's about there that
agreement stopped and in-
dividuality set in.
The traditional dinners
were best food offering
for New Year's Eve ac-
cording to some restau-
rants like B.W., Villdge
Inn of Newburg, Mich.
and DJ's of Gladwin
But steak and prime rib
were touted best by such
restaurants as Angelo's &
Ricardo's of Hesperia,
and Tietz Family Restau-
rant of Imlay City.

other restaurants on New
Year's Eve, with Sir Doug-
las of Douglas, Mich. offer-
ing "exquisite cuisine" and
historic Holly Hotel staging
its "Le Grand Cuisine"
eight-course feast accom-
panied by Detroit Sym-
phony musicians.
There was no question
that the Lock, Stock &
Barrel of Mt. Clemens knew
what it does best on New
Year's eve . . . fondue .. .
Their three-course dinner
started with cheese fondue
with fresh vegetables,
sequeled into a main course
of fondue and climaxed in a
blaze of glory with flaming
dessert fondue.
Many restaurants served
their communities more
than food during the holi-
day seasons : . . Tubby's Sub
Shops' 30 locations were de-
positories of food items for
needy families for Xmas,
just as they did Thanksgiv-
ing . . . And Kingsley Inn on
Woodward--quietly served
complimentary Thanksgiv-
ing dinner to 40 families
chosen by local service clubs
on the basis of need.
MAIL DEPT. . . . "Your
column of Nov. 12 proved
especially valuable to us.
We were planning to take
our parents out to dinner for
my father's birthday and
didn't know where to go.
After reading about Benji's
Restaurant on Orchard
Lake Rd. in Sylvan Lake,
we decided to go there.
"We made reservations
for 16 (12 adults, two teens
and two babies.) Your ac-
colades were not exagger-
ated. The food and service
were superb. The char-
broiled halibut, Boston
scrod, sauteed lemon sole
and lake perch were the
highlights of the dinner.
"Benji's presentation is
great. The platter with all
the fresh fish to select from
really impressed my par-
ents. They have never seen
anything like this in a res-
taurant before.
"All of our platters were
garnished with a slice of
fresh orange and a few
grapes, and I noticed every-
body ate them. A really nice
touch. The consensus on the
fish was that it was the
freshest and best-tasting
fish they have ever eaten.

tion the cost at Benji's. We
were delightfully surprised,
having eaten at other sea-
food restaurants where the
least expensive fish dinner
starts at $11-$12 on up to
$20.
"We were definitely
happy with Boston scrod at
$6.95, halibut at $9.90,
lemon sole at $8.50 and lake
perch at $8.50. This in-
cluded steamed broccoli,
boiled potato, and all of that
excellent honey wheat
caraway bread you can eat.
Such delicious food and so
reasonable."
S. Moss
"P.S. By the way, it was
my dad's 77th birthday."

"How vivid are your
memories of Darbys?
"In just the past few
months I have met, or dis-
cussed, Bob Winkle, Herbie
Showalter and Leroy Powell
(grill), Kaye. Mazur (my
carry-out gal), Dorothy
Eason (sandwiches), Cecilia
Feldman (waitress now in
California), Bernard
Kerner, Sam and Edna
Boesky, Wally Rash (pastry
chef), Mary Bikos (hostess),
John Carmona (maitre -d'),
Ella, Helen, Rosie, Marge,
Jacki, Chris, etc., etc.
"Those were the days of
good, wholesome, tasty and
pridefully-prepared gefilte
fish, roast briskets, chicken
and turkey breast — as well
as the matzo balls, krep-
lach, Jewish penicillin
(chicken soup), mushroom
barley (every Sunday), lima
bean and barley, cabbage
soup, cabbage flanken,
knishes, etc. — all prepared
or supervised by 'Mama'
Levitt, may she rest in
peace.
"And, have you ever
tasted anything like the
chicken poulette sandwich
we had at Darbys??? Where
my orders from Mr. 'B' were
to purchase only the top
quality corned beef bris-
kets, pastrami, salami,
frankfurters, smoked fish,
lox, etc.
"Those were the days of
the delicate-essen/
restaurant, and I do mean
delicate-essen. When
corned beef and pastrami
was cut by hand (if the hand
was sharp enough) and lox
was also cut by hand.
"Those were the days of

burger and fries ( 1/2 pound- fairly uniform prices — and

"I do believe Benji's has etc. Or, order over a certain
probably the best-tasting amount of food and receive a
bread I've ever eaten — `passbook' free — and the
fresh baked honey wheat passbook gives you one free

"I suggest that our deli
