(The Best of Everything

BLACK . TIE PRE-
MIERE of the new River-
front twin towers luxury
apartments on W. Jefferson
wouldn't have been the
same without a touch of the
late Sammy Lieberman,
who used to be the gent cal-
led upon for such occasions.
The flaming flare wasn't
there, but wherever he is,
Sammy saw more than
ample representation .. .
and if he had to say so him-
self, couldn't have done bet-
ter.
Mark Stein, Sammy's
former partner, was there
with the Mark of Excellence
catering owned by him and
Frank Winton . . . Chef
Robert Zimmerman, the
other third of this dynamic
trio, who are also exclusive
caterers at Temple Israel
and Temple Beth El, didn't
feel well enough to attend
. . . but his food sure went
over in a big way.
Hors d'oeuvres of cold
tenderloin roulade and
ratatouille tartler were
passed . . . then buffet
that included gravadlax
(smoked salmon) with dill
sauce, shrimp pate, sable
mousse, civichy (mari,
nated scallops) veal loin
with sweetbread mousse,
sliced breast of duck with
green peppercorn sauce,
game pates like pheasant
in puffed pastry and
duck with pistachio nuts.
Desserts galore also made
by Chef Richard Zimmer-
man . . . hazelnut rnerangue
tortes, puff pastry filled
with butter cream and fresh
raspberries swimming in
caramel sauce, fruit flans,
flourless cake, etc. . . . plus
plenty of fruits and im-
ported cheeses.
Even Sammy's favorite
bartenders were there .. .
Richard Oliver, 22 years at
the Raleigh House . . .
Hokie Smith, 23 years .. .
and Sam Ward, with
Sammy since Linwood days.
Mark of Excellence cater-
ing carries on what became
a tradition of very good food
and service.
About 200 people vie-
wed the beautiful ninth
floor models ... over-
looking the Detroit River
... and listened to music
wherever they went ...
piano in the largest
apartment shown ...
oboe and clarinet trio in
the general offices food
area.
Doug Schubot with his
trademark, a diamond bee
on a red bowtie . . . Federal
Judge Avern Cohn behind
one of the bars making his
own drink (and not even a
member of the union). Joe
Nederlander switching
pocket hankies with gent
who always wears white
with his tux . . . Everytime
Joe sees him, he switches a
red or maroon in its place.
There'll be a mini Farmer
Jack opened downstairs by
Paul Borman . . . Miles
Davis taking two of the
large apartments . . . with
plans to knock down the
wall between . . . Gil . Sil-

verman always so pleasant
. . . Occupancy of Riverfront
is expected to begin around
Spring of 1984.
MAIL DEPT.... "Just a
line to let you know that we
are enjoying our retirement
here in Margate, Fla. We
get The Jewish News every
week. Rachel will celebrate
her 70th birthday on Jan.
23, 1984, and I will cele-
brate my 70th birthday on
Feb. 6, 1984. We will celeb-
rate our 45th anniversary
on Feb. 26, 1984.

my niece by marriage to my
nephew Sheldon Klaiman
(she is Marian Goldman's
daughter), will have a baby
early next year."
Your Clam Shop Friend

David Goldfine

THE CLAM SHOP
owned by Dave on E. Grand
Blvd. was another of those
little restaurant gems that
seemed to abound in De-
troit's aging factory and
warehouse district.
The building was an an-
cient structure, originally
put up by a well-known
brewery way, way back be-
fore prohibition . . . In those
days, we were told, the bar-
tenders and breweries all
but dragged the customers
in off the street to drink beer
for a nickel and partake of
the free lunch.
The Clam Shop interior
was plain and clean and the
floor dipped gracefully here
and there . . . The kitchen
was very likely not as big as
the one in your home or
apartment, but the seafood
that came out of it was
thought by some to be the
best in Detroit, while others
said it was the best in the
Midwest.

.Proprietor of the Clam
Shop with Dave was
Frank van Brusselen
Dave originally bought
the place and Frank
joined him in ownership
10 years later ... Neither
man had any prior re-
staurant experience.
As the name implied, the
Clam Shop was devoted to
those who believed all that
is good comes from the sea
. . . The menu featured a
high concentration of things
like clams, oysters, lobsters,
king crab and fish, fish, fish.
Lobster was king at the
Clam Shop . . . and the piece
de resistance was the
broiled lobster . . . It was
11/4-pound beauty stuffed
with a delicious dressing
the likes of which we have
never tasted again.
Oysters in season, and
clams were another spe-
cialty of the Clam Shop ..
Like the lobster, they were
flown in every other day
from the east and at the
arch of an eyebrow, Dave
would whip out his weekly
price list to show you that
they bought nothing but
quality regardless of price.
Dave and Frank were
equally proud of their red
snapper, fresh pompano,
finan haddie, shad row
and king crab..

TO ADD AMONG IT'S FINE
CARRY-OUT DINING!

As a concession to the oc-
casional eccentric who came
in for a steak, they had ex-
cellent New York strips and
tenderloins of the highest
quality . . . but make no
mistake, they were basi-
cally a seafood house .. .
Their complete dinner .. .
and there was no skimping
on food . . . prices ranged
from about $2 to $5.
The Clam Shop was not
open on Sunday and served
only sandwiches and soup
for lunch . . . Dinner was the
big deal, and on Friday and
Saturday it was deemed
very advisable to have a re-
