The Best of Everything

IT'S CALLED one of the
best kept secrets in the eat-
ery business . . . This is
Marc's Family Inn on Grand
River and Seven Mile, west
of Telegraph . . . across from
Redford Community Hospi-
tal and next to the Earl
Scheib shop.
Seating is for 94 in two
intimate rooms with green
carpeting and green over-
hanging plants to set off the
plain but cozy restaurant
becoming so noted for its
good food and low prices.
Owners Marc Bowser and
Jim Moorhouse took over a
former Lums . . . and from
_their Marc's Cafe seating 30
at another site, opened this
spot, renamed it Marc's
Family Dining . . . and have
been gaining a hi hl
reputation.

Besides their family
restaurant, they also
have the former Bistro
locale in back . . . with ac-
cess from the restaurant
... which is called Marc's
- Back Door, seating 130
... cocktails, five-piece
band ... and deep-dish
pizza Marc and Jim call
the best anywhere ...
Also salads, sandwiches
and everyday specials
like charbroiled N.Y.
strip, baby beef liver, fish
and chips, charbroiled
Walleye, jumbo battered
shrimp, Saturday night
prime rib feast, Sunday
chicken dinner, etc.

--

The menu at Marc's Fam-
ily Dining has almost 200
items on six pages . . . easy
to read . . . including
nachos, deep-fried zucchini,
14 salads, homemade soups,
chili, eight deli sandwiches,
17 regular sandwiches, 12
beefburgers, five hot dogs
(one is grilled kielbasa with
grilled onion and green
pepper), homemade onion
rings, over 20 different
breakfasts, about 22
' - omelettes, 19 beverages be-
sides beer, wine and
cocktails, six galettes
(example: Galette A La
Basqaise, green pepper
rings and chopped tomato
sauteed in garlic butter,
topped with Swiss cheese.
Served with salad garnish
and Bernaise sauce).
Lunch or dinner entrees
include 19 meat dishes and
eight seafood plates (even
APA from the Philippines,
chopped fresh shrimp stir-
fried in garlic with diced
chicken, soy sauce and
brown sugar . . . served on a
Philippine flat cake with
lettuce).
The prices are unbeliev-
ably low . . . and the food so
very good according to so
- many people.

Marc's Family Dining
even has its own pastry
chef ... with homemade
pastries listed on a menu
, board . . . (first time ever I
heard of a restaurant
whose highest priced
meal is $6.95, except for
$8.95 king cut steak, hav-
ing its own pastry chef).

Marc's Family Dining has
been a well-kept secret .. .
until now.

SINCE CLOSING his
restaurant on E. Eight Mile
in 1975, Ernie Palombo has
been in retirement five
-times . . . He is now daytime
host for John and Pete
Ginopolis at their
Ginopolis' spot on Middle-
belt and 12 Mile.

EVER SEE the owner
outside cleaning the
sidewalk in front of his res-
taurant? . . . There's Manny
Farao, outdoors at his little
29 seater Manny's Deli on
W. Nine Mile Rd. just west
of Woodward in Ferndale,
with wire brushes attached
to his floor polishing
machine . . . wearing gloves
. . . making that sidewalk as
clean as he can . . . to coin-
cide with the very spotless
eatery run by Manny and
wife Chris.
Then it's back behind the
newly-enclosed sandwich
counter (to keep dirt and
dust away from his cutting
board) and slicing rye by
hand . . . Their bread, by the
way, is three-quarters
baked when Manny and
Chris get the loaves . . . and
then finished off by them-
selves.
This used to be Sammy's
Corned Beef 'n Rye . . . The
big yellow awning in front
says Manny's . . and a huge
neon sign back by the 300-
car municipal lot with up to
three hours meter time has
his name inside bright yel-
low lights.

The place is spotless .. .
not a single thumbprint
on the very clear show-
case ... gleaming stain-
less steel everywhere ...
and pretty fresh flowers
from Kevin's Floral Ex-
pressions on W. Nine Mile
in Ferndale on all tables,
booths and by each
counter seat.

Manny and Chris have
remodeled their little place
. .. It's so nice and bright
now, with booths, chairs
and counter stools a bright
orange to replace dark-
brown . . . new blonde For-
mica is on all the tops and
counter . . . while a beauti-
ful drop ceiling makes for
cozy and stylish decor.
Manny's Deli, between F
& M and Secretary of State,
next door to Kresge's, has
become the favorite of many
. . . local celebrities in-
cluded . . . The little
momma-and-poppa opera-
tion that produces five
homemade soups, chili and
about 35 sandwiches plus
some hot dishes is so very
clean . . . and everything so
tasty.
Like the deli days of yes-
teryears, Manny still gives
people pieces of whatever he
is cutting . . Many
businesses around . . . with
Manny and Chris soon very
busy on sandwiches and
soups for carry-out that be-
gins to boom with the
weather . . . plus trays for
the holidays . . . But they're
from the old school . . . The
customers inside for sure
won't be neglected . . . not
now or ever.
