NEIGHBORHOOD
DINING has come into its
own more these days than
perhaps ever before. . .
Whatever the reason or rea-
sons . . . not wanting to
travel long distances or eco-
nomics having folks watch-
ing the family budget more
. . . it's a fact that neighbor-
hood restaurants have
never been as good as they
are today.
Take a place like Como's
on Woodward and Nine
Mile Rd. for Italian food .. .
which has been there since
1961, owned by George and
Sicilia Grego, who had got-
ten married the year before

. . . George had been work-
ing in a machine shop .. .
and Sicilia was a waitress at
her mom's and dad's (Mimi
and Jimmy Pasalacqua)
place called "Mimi's" on E.
Nine Mile in East Detroit
. . . Before that, Jimmy had
worked at Vesuvio's on
Gratiot . . . the first pizza
restaurant in Detroit .. .
and favorite of Bob Hope.
Sicilia's brother, Frank
Pasalacqua, owns Edjo's
and Mario's Restaurant an
Second Blvd.
Stockbroker Herman
Schwartz went to Como's
with wife Rona to eat the
Boneless Chicken ... She
loved it so much that
Rona came back and or-
dered 50 Boneless Chic-
ken dinners for Herman's
50th birthday party.
The Boneless Chicken at
Como's is a big favorite
($6.50 includes spaghetti or
potato, vegetable, salad and
bread basket) . . . and one of
many reasonable dishes at
this popular neighborhood
restaurant . . . with its com-
fortable, homey atmosphere
. . . high-backed, full-
leather private booths,
stone walls, beamed ceiling,
Tiffany lamp shades, gas-
lights on walls and booths,
beautiful stained glass win-
dows, slate floors, 115 seat-
ing in two rooms, knotty
pine. wood and dark panel-
ing, etc.
Home cooking is a Como's
trademark which has
brought the neighborhood
restaurant back into the
fore of dining.
I had the Boneless Chic-
ken again . . . and it was
super . . . brought by very
efficient, courteous waitress
Roberta "Bobbie"
Waszlewski . . . Another in
our party had Breaded Ita-
lian Steak which is always
good at Como's . . . and an-
other had one of the best
Linguini with Clam Sauce
dishes I'd tasted anywhere.
Waitresses like Bobbie
and Carolyn Kula are
good for a restaurant ...
They are what you might
call added attractions
because of their compe-
tency.
Como's as a good Italian
neighborhood restaurant is
a family operation . . .
George and Sicilia are a
very hard-working couple
. . . son George is a cook,
manager and pizza maker
. . . The elder George Grego,
owner George's father,
comes in two or three times
a week to do much of its
shopping . . . Mimi Usher,
Sicilia's niece, is also a
waitress . . . daughter
Madonna is waitress,
cashier and cook . . . Mother
Mimi Pasalacqua brightens
up the place everytime she
comes in.
The
boom toward
neighborhood dining is long
overdue . . . The best
homecooked meals are got-
ten here . . . Pauline and
Harry Weinberger join a
long list of regulars who
enjoy Como's ... open seven
days a week.

TYPING ERROR .. .

Name of pianist-vocalist

Tuesday, Thursday and
Friday evenings at
Rhinoceros downtown . .. is
Jan Van Gorden . . . not
Jack.
JACOBS,
LORI
songstress and songwriter,
is at Bloomfield Canopy,
Orchard Lake Rd. and
Maple, Tuesday through
Saturday . . . til Aug. 6.
SO MANY EATING
spots were affected by the
giant heat wave
encountered in our area .. .
with air-conditioning
breaking down . . . The
catastrophe didn't escape
Crabbie Joe's recent
seventh anniversary cele-
bration . . . so its gala sea-
food extravaganza and
birthday party will be re-
peated . . . this Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday . . . on Michigan
between Southfield and
Telegraph (a mile west of
Hyatt Regency.)
People like Jerry Band.of
Band Drugs in Southfield
and wife Gail, Dr. Myron
and Sissy Bakst and eye doc
Jack and Joyce Morov took
off whatever jackets they
were wearing . . . They'll be
back for the repeater and
Joe says it'll be so cool
they'd better wear those
jackets.
Seven years already . . . I
remember when Joe and
Nan Bird had one of the best
hamburger sandwiches in
town at their Coach House
Bar on Grand River near
Washington Blvd. 10 years
ago . . . They moved to
Dearborn . . . tried an Ita-
lian eatery at the former
Zweiback's Department
Store . . . and when Meyer's
Seafood closed its doors,
Crabbie Joe's 'became the
premier seafood spot in the
area.
There's a new menu
now at Crabbie Joe's ...
one of the prettiest res-
taurants in Dearborn ...
with its print table cloths,
oodles of Tiffany lamp
shades intermingled with
designer shades, low
lighting, soft elegantly
casual atmosphere, red
decor, red napkins, soft
red wallpaper, white
stucco walls, beamed
ceiling, antique framed
photos, antique framed
mirrors, an antique
framed 1885 marriage
certificate, whirling ceil-
ing fans, wooden slat
floors, canopy entrance
in rear.
The 12-foot salad bar that
comes with dinners after 4
is Helen Bejesky's fine crea-
tion . . . she prepares over 20
all-you-can-eat items .. .
including mussels.
Chef Robert Trombley
makes superb dishes . . .
and is noted for his
homemade soups . . . I had
the delicious New England
Clam Chowder while there
and savored its thick tasti-
ness . . . You must have the
homemade Apple Surprise
