Chef's de Cuisine
Good dinner — not overly expen-
sive — room overlooking the river
— brunch at the River Crab Sun-
day morning. Altogether, a highly
recommended trip. Bad news —
While having lunch at Mountain
Jacks in Troy, a roach joined us at
the table. I know that all restau-

MAIL DEPT . . . "We've trans-
fered from Oak Park and like it
here, weatherwise only, no snow,
hail or sleet. Sure we miss all our
wonderful friends in Michigan,
but that's life nowadays. Lots of
Detroiters here too.
"I have a small problem that
you may be able to help me with.
A few years ago, I was in a motion
picture with Bette Midler called,
A Story Never Untold that was
filmed in Bloomfield, Mich. by a
director named Pete McWilliams,
who lived in a suburb near Dear-
born. The movie was shown at the
Detroit Institute of Arts on
Woodward Ave. Thousands of
