IThe Best of Everything)

WHEN WAS THE last
time you ate at Darlin' Lil-
ly,'s, Orchard Lake Road be-
tween 12 and 13 Mile? .. .
There's a big change there
now . . . Instead of a place to
grab a snack, it has become
a full-service dining estab-
lishment . . . with emphasis
on veal dishes of all types
. . . In fact, Darlin' Lilly's is
the only place I know of that
serves charbroiled veal .. .
done in 30 seconds without
loss of juices or flavor.
Chef Anthony Syrocki
does wonders with his veal
dishes . . . and it is probably
among the lowest priced
places in town serving very
fine provimi veal . . . Darlin'
Lilly's has become a big
favorite for veal piccato
(sauteed in lemon butter)
and orange roughy (broiled
New Zealand whitefish
with texture and flavor al-
ways so consistent).
Chef Anthony has over 60
veal dishes . . . but only 11
or 12 served each night .. .
unless special ordered.
Sweet, dimpled wait-
ress Ann Wiseley brought
us different types of veal
prepared by Chef An-
thony ... and they were
all tastefully and ten-
derly delicious ... Veal
Anthony ($10.95), meda-
lions of veal charbroiled
on fresh vegetables, then
topped with chive butter
and baked au gratin ...
Charbroiled Veal ($8.95),
medallions charbroiled
and lightly topped with
chive butter.
Something else new from
Darlin' Lilly's kitchen . .
Fettucini Tres prepared
superbly by Chef Anthony
. . . consisting of three diffe-
rent types of fettucini noo-
dles (spinach, egg and to-
mato) tossed with blended
cheeses, then topped with
walnuts . . . so very colorful,
different . . . and delicious.
No more trying to hear
yourself talk or eating with
drums droning loudly .. .
The sophisticated rhythms
of Bobby Laurel are now at
Darlin' Lilly's.
Back in 1965, Bobby did a
single on piano and vocals
in back room at the Caucus
Club . . . He was there with
his trio the last two weeks of
Barbra Streisand's en-
gagement . . . prior to her
going off Broadway as an
understudy in the show, "I
Can Get It For You
Wholesale" . . . and then
super stardom.
Bobby came there from
the London Chop House ac-
ross the street . . . and was
first group ever to play the
Caucus Club.
He is an excellent
pianist and vocalist ...
with the soft piano tingl-
ing and mellow voice so
conducive to fine dining
... His quartet at Darlin'
Lilly's is excellent . . . "It's
like the Apartment
Lounge with food," says
Bobby ... People from
years back and their
children remember
Bobby when he played
The Apartment Lounge

on W. McNichols for Jack
Freed and the late Ray
Bresler in 1971 and 1974.
Bobby has a big following
. . . and the veal at Darlin'
Lilly's is also getting the
same thing . . . His nimble
fingers drift along the
keyboard with much dexter-
ity of rhythmic excitement
accompanied by drums
(soft), standing bass and
guitar . . . all very fine
musicians . . . with
maracas, calavos, etc. on
neat Latin tunes.
Bobby's "Miserlou" is
terrific . . . breaking into a
touch of "Hava Nagela" in
Latin beat . . . and back to
"Miserlou" . . . Also his
"Embraceable You," "Bau-
bles, Bangles and Beads,"
"More Than You Know,"
"Sound of Music," "That
Funny Day," etc. . . . Bobby
is the type of easy performer
who makes his audience
comfortable and relaxed.
Many folks will re-
member him for his wonder-
ful renditions of "I've Got a
Crush On You" among so
many, many other tunes.
You've never heard "Battle
Hymn of the Republic" the
way Bobby's quartet does it
at Darlin' Lilly's . . . and
those classical gems for lis-
teners, too . . . plus soft up-
beat for dancing . . . Wed-
nesday through Saturday.
The new Darlin' Lilly's is
so much so . . . for the better
by far.
OLD
ANOTHER
TIMER in the deli business
has called it quits . . . as
Harry Weiss, former owner
of Original Esquire in Har-
vard Row, 1.1 Mile and
Lahser, hangs up his salami
and retires . . . with new
owners Irene and Erno
Klein taking over the de-
licatessen 18 years at its
present locale.
Remaining, however, are
Eli Eliakaravas, dinner
cook since Harry opened
this spot . . . Bob Winkle,
counterman extraordinaire,
17 1/2 years with Harry .. .
and reliable counterman
Merle Coleman, a former
restaurateur himself.
Erno is no stranger to the
restaurant business . . . al-
though he is more known for
his bakeries since coming
here from Hungary . . . Vie-
nna Bakery, Dexter and
Lawrence, National Bak-
ery, Dexter and Cortland,
and Vienna Bakery in 1960
on Littlefield and Seven
Mile.
He is former owner of
the little 26-seater Onion
Deli on Woodward in
Royal Oak ... In
Budapest, Erno had a
large restaurant from
1945 ... In 1948 he ran
away and went to Israel
... serving in the Israeli
army 1948 through 1950
Erno came to Israel
two months after it had
won its statehood inde-
pendence.
Original Esquire, seating
120, is now open seven days
a week . . . and for certain,
the bread and rolls will be

4





fresh made that morning
. . . Erno has owned Jewel
Bakery at Harvard Mall
almost five years.
This Sunday begins au-
thentic Hungarian dinners
at Original Esquire . . . I
tried veal paprikas with
dumplings, one of the dishes
Irene is showing their cooks
how to make . . . tender,
tasty and authentic.
ABOUT 250 PEOPLE
helped Pat Archer celebrate
his birthday recently at Ex-
calibur, Northwestern and
Franklin at 12 Mile . . . as
he was roasted merrily .. .
Emcee was newscaster Bill
Bonds . . . Al Hirt and group
came in from New Orleans
as a favor to Pat . . . Also
Jilly Rizzo, Frank Sinatra's
