Danny Raskin's

I The Best of Everything)

a

THERE'S A NEW
LOOK in food now at
Ginopolis, Middlebelt and
12 Mile . . . as tablecloths
and cloth napkins grace the
very well-built and beauti-
ful standing memorial to
George Ginopolis, late
father of owners John and
Pete Ginopolis.
The biggest seller isn't
pizza, ribs or spaghetti
anymore . . . it's shrimp
scampi on fettucini Alfredo
(large scampi sauteed with
garlic butter and wine,
served on the delicious
creamed noodles) . . . And
the new revised menu now
also includes steak Diane
(filets of choice tenderloin
beef, sauteed with scallions,
mushrooms and brandy),
chicken a la Kline (named
after Chef Bill Kline —
chicken with sauteed on-
ions, fresh mushrooms and
green peppers in Marsala
wine).
Also, escargot appetizer,
surf and turf, shrimps mar-
tini (shrimp cocktail on
crushed ice with dry Ver-
mouth) . . . and so much
more . . . under supervision
of Sherrie Beals, formerly
with Restaurant Duglass,
Golden Mushroom and
Truffles.
Now that the action-
packed Ginopolis has
reached a peak of to-
getherness fun, nice guys
Johnny and Pete, who do
so much for people . . .
and are probably among
the best-liked fellows
around . . . made the
well-received menu
changeover.
January was first an-
niversary of the new
Ginopolis edifice . . . tables
in center, padded booths-on
one side with curtains be-
tween . . . and other side
with large padded booths
. . . wide expanse . . . over-
hangs of antique-like lamp
shades, large dance floor
with mirrored ceiling and
big seven-bulbed chandelier
plus large bulbs on poles
four-cornering the floor.
Doors- with etched glass,
dark heavy beams with
brass, curved brass on bot-
toms of four island tables, so
much etched wood . . . the
huge bar with its brass foot
rail . . . and "George
Ginopolis" in gold so nobody
will ever forget his sacred
memory . . . Isn't it nice that
Johnny and Pete have made
so very sure of this?
The very polite waiters
and waitresses are now all
in tux shirts and black bow
ties . . . Such very congenial
people like evening hostess
Beverly McDowell and day
manager Ernie Palumbo .. .
My waiter while having the
delicious shrimp scampi on
fettucini Alfredo was Ralph
Bassett, an efficient and
polite young gentleman.
A new private banquet
room now holds up to 130
people ... and is already
a place people hope to see
on their invitation.
The Sunday brunch, 11
a.m.-3 p.m. with its 39 items
and 18 hot dishes, has be-

come a favorite of many.
"Ginopolis Dance Con-
test" has already begun ..
sponsored by Jax Kai- Wash
. . . Contestants must regis-
ter at the restaurant after 5
p.m. for Feb. 20, 27, March
5, 12 and 19 . . . Semi-finals
are March 26 and finals
April 2, with celebrity
judges . . . Grand prize win-
ners get trip to Acapulco,
second prize is chauffered
limousine to Raphael's
gourmet room in
Sheraton-Oaks, and third
prize is champagne dinner
at Ginopolis.
Ginopolis is open seven
days a week . . . very clean
. . . a place where per-
sonalities from worlds of
show biz, sports and media
like to go . . . The emphasis
is on customer-pleasing ..
Johnny and Pete have done
the kind of job you'd expect
... and they've certainly
made a lot of people even
more proud of them.
URSULA WALKER
and Buddy Budson, hus-
band and wife team, re-
turned to the Caucus Club
on Congress (Penobscot
Bldg.) through Feb. 25.
IT'S A BIG HOME in
Huntington Woods . . . a
place where you'd ordinar-
ily look to see family life ..
To coin an expression from
Jackie Gleason, "How sweet
it is!"
Instead, this is where
those delicious, delectable,
delovely Gayle's Chocolates
are being made . . . for now
. . . and gaining such a huge
reputation.
Gayle Steinhardt is the
gal behind the 16 different
kinds of chocolate truffles
being made in a basement
. . . and sold by all J. L. Hud-
son stores, Merchant of
Vino, Chocolatissimo,
Jacobson's, Nutcracker
Sweet, Palate Pleaser, etc.
.. plus places in Chicago,
C
. leveland and Buffalo,
Making candy started
out as a sort of hobby for
Gayle ... She's been at it
full-time four years . . .
making only truffles ..
with all-natural ingre-
dients and top-quality
chocolate. With the help
of a couple of em-
ployees, Gayle melts the
chocolate in machines for
different flavors . . . dark,
white and milk chocolate
. A large cooler room
contains boxes and boxes
filled with a chocaholic's
dream.
Plus the boxes of truffles,
Gayle makes chocolate -
covered roses (white and
brown) with stems, truffles
for spreads on cookies at Bar
Mitzva (a big rage), choco-
late records with names of
person being Bar or Bat
Mitzva, business cards .. .
even a push button-look
telephone made of choco-
late.
Custom work is very big
with Gayle Steinhardt and
her Gayle's Chocolates .. .
for any occasion . . . any
motif ... All are solid choco-
late throughout . . . some
made with various liqueur

flavors (amaretto, kahlua,
brandy, rum, etc.) . . . And
Gayle's employees are ar-
tists, too . . . They make
solid chocolate baskets . .
also filled with (what else?)
solid chocolate truffles.
Bulk of her business are
the boxes and boxes and
boxes of chocolate truffles
. . . hand-dipped at a rate of
400 an hour . . . There's
custom-made candy bars,
too . . . Imagine . . . sending
someone a large truffle
candy bar . . . but then
again, it's not so strange
when you think of the roses
Gayle makes out of truffles
. . . or those business cards
and telephones . . . There's
not a thing Gayle can't
make out of pure, solid
chocolate truffles.
It's a home . . . but al-
ready too small for Gayle's
