"These self-appointed, holier-
than-thou characters visit a res-
Q taurant and order a meal. If it
isn't to their liking, they break

"Some, I understand, may even
go back two or three times. It
would be interesting to know
whether it ever occurred to them
to talk to the owner and/or the
( C manager and give them an oppor-
tunity to rectify whatever may

"Of course I have been served
meals that were not to my liking,
but I have the guts to send the
'meal back to the kitchen. Nine
times out of ten, whatever was
° wrong is corrected. I do not hesi-
tate to talk to the owner, espe-
cially when I receive letters com-
plaining about food or service.

staurateurs and their associa-
tions will get their acts together

"One final thought. It is just too
' bad that food critics do not realize
that we all have different palates,
which are affected by emotions,

THE MYSTERY MUNCHER
WRITES . . . "Things can defi-
nitely be better the second time
around. And another cliche, 'If at
first you don't succeed, try, try
again' is equally true. If you give
it a fair shot, you may be in for a
pleasant surprise on a repeat per-
"That's what happened on a re-
cent Saturday night when we
tried Chuck Joseph's restaurant
on Coolidge and 12 Mile after

visit a while back. This time we
Mound the atmosphere extremely
warm and pleasant. Genial host
'] Lou Miller greeted us with, 'Don't
think I'm being forward, but ha-
ven't I seen you someplace be-
fore?' Our bubbly waitress shot
'back, 'Hey, Miller, stop bothering
my customers,' The evening was
) off to a great start.
"We enjoyed the meatballs, raw
'veggies and olives (on the house)
served with cocktails as we lis-
tened to a talented pianist tickle
the ivories with oldies but
goodies. One of the guests sang in
Italian and Spanish which was a
real musical treat.
Our frog legs were small and
succulent with just the right tinge
of garlic butter, the salad was ex-
cellent and all in all Chuck
Joseph's was a winner the second
"We tried The Red Cedars on
Telegraph and Nine Mile the sec-
ond time around and it, too, was
better than we remembered it. We
like the warm dining room sur-
rounded by lots of wood and a
copper-hooded fireplace. The price
was reasonable, and dinner very
satisfactory. Our onion soup was
rich and hearty, the salad tasty
and the pan-fried baby beef liver
with sauteed onions was done
medium rare, the way we like it.
Also included were a baked potato
and freshly baked bread.
"Both return visits proved you
can't always judge a restaurant on
the first try. Things often change
and keep improving.
"One of our favorite luncheon
spots is the Good Earth in Tally
Hall on Orchard Lake Road and
14 Mile. Somehow you have that
healthy feeling when you get a
whiff of the [picy aroma and enjoy
the wheat bread, bountiful salad
or fresh fruit with yogurt. We love
the flavored coffee and our next
stop is for almoretta and vanilla
coffee beans, blackberry tea and
Good Earth Bakery banana
