EVER HAVE A CHINESE
Omelette? We had one at Rik-
shaw Inn while lunching recently
with Orchard Mall's Kathy Price
.. made for us by owner/chef
David Ltun ... pea pods, bean
sprouts, water chestnuts, mush-
rooms, bamboo shoots, Spanish

onion, eggs, salt and oyster sauce
on the side. . .. The delicious and
unusual concoction . . . with soft
garlic toast . . . was brought to us
by sweet Vicki Przywara, a smil-
ing, personable and highly effi-
cient waitress whose pleasant-
ness must be a tremendous asset
to the Rikshaw.
THREE OTHERS TRIED
and all failed ... Now the former
Bonaventure, Sidney's and Ko-
gy's will soon celebrate its second
anniversary as the highly suc-
cessful Nicky's in concourse at
Top of Troy Bldg., W. Big Beaver.
Owners John Reaser and Nick
Sorise have probably one of
Michigan's top spots when it
comes to food, fun, live'music and
dancing . . . in an atmosphere of
sheer delightfulness . . . so neat
. . . so comfortable . . . so pleasant.
And they're the kind of restau-
rant owners who employees like
to work for ... held in esteem be-
cause of the way they run their
business . . . and treat customers
. . . But that's not all . . . Both
John and Nick don't just stand
around and watch . . . When it
gets busy and the waitpersons
need assistance, the bosses are
there pitching in . . . John is one of
the nation's "best dressed bus-
boys" . . . wearing suits that cost
$750 to $1,000 and carrying trays
or cleaning tables . . . That's what
he was doing day we were there
recently for lunch.
The waitresses at Nicky's are
good ones ... Lisa Barker waited
on us . . . very pleasant and so effi-
cient . . . bringing Chef James
Lehane's delicious Sicilian bean
and pasta soup, chock full of soft
shells, chi-chi beans and vegeta-
bles . . . Also the excellent Sicilian
chicken, very lightly breaded...
served with green, yellow and
white fettucini . . . Such little
things yet so big . . . like coffee
served in tall glass cups . . . cream
in metal creamer.
Everybody is so pleasant at
Nicky's . . . Maryann Kale, gen-
eral manager now, started as a
hostess . . . coming to Nicky's a
month after it opened . . . and
helping John and Nick make their
place grow into the very popular
niche it now enjoys.
GOOD WAITRESS DEPT.
. Donna Ferns . . . evenings at
Remal's, W. Nine Mile east of
Coolidge . . . smiling, pleasant
and personable.
ALMOST ALL THOSE great
desserts made by Sylvia Lee are

Bloomfield University School in
Birmingham .. . Dad Harry
Greenberg, an Orthodox Jew,
came in and kashered her place of
business . . . non-dairy . . . sepa-
rate dishes . . . separate silver-
ware . . . separate ingredients.
Sylvia Lee has a special order
dessert company . . . and nothing
but loud raves for everything .. .
Even hubby, Dr. Larry Lee,
pitches in . .‘ by decorating the
cakes . . . But cakes are just a
small part of her dessert offerings
How about 14 chocolate
goodies, nut delights, 12 "cakey"
cake presentations, flans, mous-
ses, five cheesecakes, truffles,
tarts, turtles, French sandwiches
and so many more very interest-
