A GREAT SHOW OF af-
fection, dedication and loy-
alty . . . was the pre-
reopening last week by
Rialto Cafe on Woodward
just south of Nine Mile Rd.
. . . held evening prior to
public welcome by so many
more.
This was a wonderful
tribute to owners Charlie
and Frank Pappas, whose
July 3 tragic incident at the
restaurant ... which could
have happened anywhere at
anytime . . . had the eatery
closed about six weeks .. .
The employees didn't go out
looking for other jobs . . .
waiting for Rialto to open
again . . . waitresses, bus-
boys and chefs . . . all of
whom could have gotten
work elsewhere . . . Just
about everyone returned . . .
in a show of loyalty and af-
fection that cannot be
bought.
Rialto Restaurant is the
same as before . . . a good
family dining spot that
serves quality food at low
prices . . . and so many
people call "our home away
from home" . . . But the
"new start" that Charlie
and Frank so richly deserve
got off to a tremendous bang
as its quietly-prepared pre-
opening party was pre-
sented with much class .. .
amidst new carpeting, new
aluminum doors, new
counter, new wallpaper,
new glass case, five new
booths, new waitress is-
lands, etc.
Television cameras from
three major stations (Chan-
nels 7, 4 and 2) took in the
proceedings to show that
evening over their air-
waves.
Hors d'oeuvres were
passed by the waitresses,
happy to return "home" .. .
as dignitaries galore ming-
led with Rialto friends .. .
over 100 . . . to welcome
back this neighborhood res-
taurant which has become
such a favorite eating and
watering spot ... Ferndale
mayor, police chief, council
members, judges, etc.,
attended.
Never anything like this
since Rialto was originally
founded in 1926 by Alex
Kelingos and Basil Theson
. . . On Oct. 20, 1977, the
city of Ferndale conferred a
resolution to Charlie and
Frank on the restaurant's
50th birthday . . . Now,
Aug. 17, 1984, another reso-
lution cae from Ferndale
city hall . . . "When a special
event will be held that will
reinforce the high esteem"
. . . to Charlie and Frank for
the great regard that Rialto
is, held in the community...
Others share in this feeling
for these two brothers and
their restaurant.
U.S. Congressman San-
der Levin took over the floor
as master of ceremonies for
his good friend, Charlie
Pappas . . . stating that it

\ N

.41. 41% r,

would be a brief ceremony
and mentioning the person-
ages present . . . To Sate
Sen. Jack Faxon, Sandy jok-
ingly remarked, "The rea-
son I didn't mention you,
Jack, was because you're
not always brief' . . . This
time he was, though .. ,
Then a phone call came
from anothr friend of Char-
lie's, Gov. James Blanchard
in the Upper Peninsula .. .
with Congressman Levin
taking the phone call and
narrating Gov. Blanchard's
message to the throng . . . It
was supposed to be a brief
ceremony, but Sandy kept it
going with, "The steaks
aren't ready yet."
Great to sit in the same
area I have made somewhat
of a ritual on most Friday
evenings . . . Only dif-
ference was no fresh turkey
. . . A lot of choice sirloin
steaks were served . . . I had
delicious Orange Roughy
fish and a splendid double-
baked potato . . . Also Greek
salad and marinated oc-
topus . . . Assorted pastries,
Greek and French, were
brought in from Greektown
. . . and Frank's wife, Peggy,
made wonderful Cataefe,
shredded dough used to
make baklava, stuffed with
walnuts, almonds, honey
and spices.
So many people saying,
"We love you" to Charlie
and Frank . . . as a plant
from Gov. Blanchard and
wife Paula sits on the new
cashier case . . . and so
many wishing them the
very best.
You can't miss Rialto now
. . . Outside is a new red
awning . . . and as dusk sets
in, rows of running lights
flash around it.
This was a dignified party
. . . and with more space,
Charlie and Frank would
have probably invited
everybody who ever came
into Rialto restaurant . . .
that's the kind of guys they
are . . . gradious, humble
and grateful.
The high quality of food
and good service coupled
with its low price reputa-
tion, are a combination hard
to beat ... but there is one
better at Rialto Restaurant
. . . the friendship of Charlie
and Frank Pappas.

IT'S NOT UNCOM-
MON to see a duck or two
waddling around . . . or per-
haps squirrel hoarding nuts
for a long winter ahead .. .
This is the atrium area of
Truffles Restaurant, Hag-
gerty Road, corner of Pon-
tiac Trail, which opened
June 1982 . . . and has ac-
quired a fine reputation for
its food and service in a very
intimate, cozy atmosphere.
The large, well-appointed
dining room with its heavy
beamed ceiling, glistening
chandeliers, large padded
arm chairs, four booth sur-
rounding center tables,
deerheads with antlers on
