with Dino Valle and Jan Rae .. .
accompanied by Judy Johnson at
piano, World Book of Guiness Re-
cords breaker for most hours con-
tinuously tickling the keyboard
while at Mario's.
ERRATA . . . The name is
Billy Prince Trio now at Jakks .. .

CKLW-AM (800) . . . Also, this
time we'll get spelling correct of
Ruth Schecter, evening hostess at
Chef Theodore on Orchard Lake
IT LOO KS SO CLEAN and
pleasant that dining at Bernar-
di's, Applegate Square, North-
western Hwy., presents an at-
mosphere of total relaxation .. .
And nothing could go better with
this combination than good food
. . . which Bernardi's has.
There are cream-colored walls,
accents of raspberry and black pa-
tent leather on padded chair
seats, ceiling draped in color to
match walls, fresh flowers in bud
vases on each table, lamp shades
fashioned like French nun's hats,
waitresses and waiters dressed in
tuxedo shirts, black bowties and
large white butcher aprons.
Bernardi's, celebrating its sec-
ond anniversary this month, seats
80 people in a light and airy at-
mosphere . . . owned by a very de-
lightful couple . Cheryl is the
always pleasant and congenial
hostess . . . Hubby Bob is evening
chef . . . During the day, he man-
ages the executive dining room at
General Motors Building on
We were there for lunch re-
cently and enjoyed a fluffy
omelette made with Swiss and
American cheese . . . served by
smiling, efficient waitress Karen
Bernardi's has fashion shows
each Friday with garments from
Diane's Place, Jill's and Ray and
Ida . . . On Wednesdays, fashions
are by Robert Mann Furs . . . All
are at Applegate . . . and the
shows at 12 noon.
Bob and Cheryl are open six
days . . . Monday-Thursday,
11:30-9; Friday and Saturday,
While lunching there, it was in-
teresting to see guys and gals at
other tables enjoying salads, fresh
fish and other items they seem-
ingly know where to come for .. .
In the evening, Bob Bernardi's
specials have become a smash hit.
Bernardi's also serves cocktails
. . . and of the three operations
that have been at this locale .. .
Bob and Cheryl's is by far and
away the best . . . no contest.
BILL BONDS, WXYZ TV an-
chor man, and Jeffrey Bruce,
cosmetic maven, now have sand-
wiches named after them at Har-
riett and Jack Goldberg's Stage &
Co. on The Boardwalk, Orchard
Lake Rd. . . . They are frequent
diners (Bill lunches during mid-
day) . . . A Jeffrey Bruce is a tur-
key sandwich and a Bill Bonds is
anchovy and egg salad.

gadim and Hersh's . . . all on The
NEW SOUTHFIELD HIL-
TON (former Sheraton Southfield
on W. Nine Mile) is still part of the
Florida-based Servico chain
which operates four hotels in this
area . . . Michigan Inn, Northfield
Hilton and Troy Hilton.
The Southfield Hilton origi-
nally opened in 1975 as Shiawas-
see Hotel . . . Name was changed
to Sheraton Southfield in 1976 .. .
Servico began managing the hotel
in September 1981, and pur-
chased it in February.
The 400-room facility is under-
going a three-phase, $3 million re-
furbishing program . . . Phase two
has been completed.
IT'S AMAZING THE amount
of people who don't know that
there is a Buddy's Bar-B-Q on Or-
chard Lake Road . . . and equally
amazing the amount that do.
Over five years ago, Arlyn
Meyerson, one of the former own-
ers of Scotch & Sirloin and Trio
restaurants, continued the legend
of his dad, Buddy Meyerson of
12th and Clairmount bar-b-q
fame . . . and opened a Buddy's
Bar-B-Q in the West Bloomfield
Plaza . . . Where? . . . It's easy to
find if you know there are also
stores on the north side of the
shopping center . . . In other
words, go in, keep right on the
driveway, turn left at the other
The location-was a big obstacle,
but heck, Arlyn didn't let this lit-
tle thing bother him . . . he's gone
through life as a deaf mute . . . and
is sharper than most people.
Arlyn and wife Hester have
been married 24 years . . . and
opened their Buddy's Bar-B-Q
with a staff of six people and four
tables . . . Today, they employ
about 12 and seating is doubled
. . . Even the menu has increased
immensely . . . with five salads
(one is the Trio Salad), 15 sand-
wiches, ribs, chicken, pizzas,
shrimp . . . and even nine omelet-
tes for lunch.
Two of the dessert goodies are
made by Hester . . . One, the same
recipe pineapple cheesecake of
Arlyn's mother, Mary Meyerson,
now 83 and living in Phoenix,
Ariz. . . . The other is a chocolate
chip cookie that is a coveted Hes-
The bar-b-q ribs made by Arlyn
and his staff are even better than
those put out by Mary and Buddy
on 12th Street . . . especially those
small baby backs . . . A big key to
those ribs at Buddy's Bar-B-Q is
the lack of grease . . . Whether
basted with Mary's recipe from
12th Street or without, the ribs
are served very tender, juicy and
greaseless . . . Just say the word
and they'll be cut for you, too .. .
The cole slaw is that same
that was served at the original
They do a big carry-out busi-
Aryln Meyerson has per-
petuated the name of Mary and
his late father . . . with a good,
solid operation that does credit to
a one-time honorable institution
in Detroit . . . Buddy's Bar-B-Q
lives on very pridefully.
