One of Metropolitan Detroit's Most Beautiful
and Exciting Restaurant-Lounges

DANNY RASKIN

THREE YEARS AGO this
February, Tina and Nick Ristich
opened the doors of their little
Cozy Cafe in Plymouth . . . with
40 seats . . . It wasn't long before
another room and 45 more seats
had to be added . . . and still there
was trouble accommodating the
people who wanted to get in .. .
Imagine this little place out in
Plymouth open seven days a
week, serving a thousand people
every day.
There hag to be much wonder-
ment what the secret is . . . or if
Tina and Nick are giving away
gold coins . . . What they have
done is simply upgraded a concept
to their own way . . . and it has
proven highly successful .. . as
warranted by the numbers.
You won't find lavish dinners
here . . . or even fabulous lunch
entrees . . . The menu is pure and
simple . . . 11 quiches, 17 sand-
wiches, four salads, soups made
daily, what appears to be a plain.
breakfast menu, beverages and
desserts . . . That's it . . . and very
obviously enough.
The quiches arean't like your
ordinary quiche . . . not made with
'custard . . . We had one called
"South of The Border" . . . sea-
soned ground beef, Jalapeno pep-
pers, taco sauce and mozzarella
cheese . . . Desserts are not what
you can get anywhere . . . Ozark
apple pie, walnuts, sliced apples
in a pie shell . . . Black Bottom, a
layer of walnuts and chocolate
cream topped by another layer of
vanilla ice cream and smothered
with meringue . . . carrot cake .. .
three layers of freshly grated car-
rots, walnuts and pineapple .. .
walnut-raisin pie, raspberry pie, _
etc.
I had some bread pudding that
was difficult to believe people
made anymore . . . truly delicious.
Cozy Cafe has its own bake shop
upstairs . . . with full-time bakers
. . . and therein might lie some of
the success . . . You won't find the
walnut-raisin sweet rolls at too
many places . . . especially
home-made . . . and they'll even
make pies for you to take home.
Cozy. Cafe is just that . . . a cozy
place to eat . . . with informal in-
timacy a big thing as the Ristich's
treat customers like good friends.

owners of Gallery Restaurant on
10 Mile, west of Evergreen, be-
came new grandparents recently
. . . Call came to restaurant for
Lou . . . Waitress said it was Eric
on phone . . . That's also their
grandson's name ‘. . . "I knew he
was smart," said Sylvia, "but not
that much!" -

THERE'S A NEW LOOK ...

both inside and outside . . . at Al
Balooly's Topinka's . . . on Tele-
graph and Seven Mile Rd. . . Re-
cently closed for remodeling, To-
pinka's seating 200 in the main
dining room area now has an in-
timate look of comfortable ele-
gance . . . with ten four-seater
booths and five doubles to go
along with its tables.
Topinka's also boasts a new
menu at dinner and lunch .. .
with prices reduced but portions
as large as ever . . . It continues as
one of the finest places around to
dine . . . and for less now . . . Al-
ways fresh food, grinds its own

meat, cuts its own steaks, bakes
sourdough rolls, etc.
Sixteen fish and seafood dinner
selections from $8.95 to $11.95 .. .
including fresh lake perch filets
($9.95) . . . three Provimi veals:
Veal Escargot ($9.95), Veal
Scaloppini ($10.95), Veal Oscar
($11.95) . . . to three steaks from
$7,95 to $13.95 . . . to three lamb
dishes, $6.95 to $9.95 . . . to three
pastas, $7.95 to $9.50 . . . to three
poultries, $6.95 to $8.95, five
soups and six appetizers . . The
famous Topinka's roast prime rib
of beef is $13.95 . . . Dinners now
include house salad or tole slaw,
relish tray with dip, choice of
potato du jour or rice, fresh veget-
able and homemade bread.
People still forget about Topin-
ka's when thinking of a good place
to eat . . . After all these years it is
one of the best dinner bargains
around . . . and even more so now.

RECENT WEEKEND, people
couldn't get into the Chef Theo-
dore (former Darlin' Lilly's) on
Orchard Lake Rd. between 12 and
13 Mile . . . Those who waited,
though, knew what they were
doing and undoubtedly enjoyed a
fine dining experience . . . Chef
Theodore has taken off like
Gangbusters since opening Nov. 5
. . . proof of its good ness is the so
many people returning.
There's something you don't see
anymore . . . a singing chef .. .
who comes out of the kitchen, per-
haps carrying a birthday cake .. .
and vocalizing "Happy Birthday"
``' or "Ole Sole Mio" in operatic tones
. . Delighted customers listen in
joyous awe as Chef Theodore Mit-
ropoulos holds the last note for so
long.
The importance of an owner/
chef is evident here . . . with Chef
Theodore in the kitchen taking
pride in his presentations.
Service has also been upgraded
to a top degree . . . New general
manager, Frank Telegadas, is
known to many . . . 15 years at
Elmwood Casino as Al Siegal's
all-around man . . . beginning as a
