BEST OF EVERYTHING

DANNY RASKIN

HIDDEN AWAY IN little
North Ridge shopping center on
Long Lake Road at Livernois is
one of the most unlikely places
for gourmet dining you'll find
anywhere.
Nine years ago, Mediterra-
nean Kitchen was strictly a spe-
cialty store ... with wines,
champagnes and class foods ...
regulary supplying restaurants
with cheeses, spices, oils, vin-
egars and other needs.
Today, it is still that ... but a
restaurant as well ... quite a
fine one ... without outlandish
prices ... Just four months ago,
tables and chairs were added ...
and seating presently consists of
five tables and six counter seats.
Mediterranean Kitchen is in a
class all its own ... There are
no fancy decor frills ... atmos-
phere is like dining in some-
body's wine cellar or elaborate
kitchen in a homey surrounding.
However, every dish setting
costs owner George Gize $72 for
genuine Mikasa China ... and
the glasses are each $17 ... The
silverware, which is changed
with every course, whether used
or not, is Oneida stainless ...
The coffee cups are replaced, as
they should be, with every refill.
This all happens at
dinnertime ... Lunch, 10 to 2 is
the regular fare of dining ...
There is then no eating until
5:30 ... for when reservations
are strongly required becasue of
the very limited seating : .. It
becomes the difference of day
and night in much more than
time.
Chef Chris Le Mieux changes
the dinner menu weekly ... as
George assists in waiting on ta-
bles ... (He hasn't dropped a
Mikasa yet) ... No expense has
been spared ... There's
candlelight with flowers ...
cloth napkins and linen tablec-
loths.
Remember now, this is not an
expensive restaurant ... But
there are gourmet preparations
like ... filet of pickerel breaded
with ground pistachios and top-
ped by Hollandaise sauce ...
bay scallops a la Parisienne,
simmered in champagne ...
veal marsala aux morels made
with milk-fed provimi veal and
sauteed in a wine sauce ...
broiled spring lamb chops with
mint chutney ... boneless
breast of chicken Frangelico
sauteed with roasted hazelnuts,
sliced mushrooms, Frangelico
Liqueur and cream ... etc.
All dinners at the little
Mediterranean Kitchen are
served with homemade soup (on-
ion or of the day) ... it's won-
derful salad (romaine, endive
and spinach,) cooked fresh veg-
etable and choice of noodles or
redskin potatoes.
The pastries are all made at
Mediterranean Kitchen.
Being around restaurants so
much, Mike has become a stick-
ler on good food and service ...
That's why he also does just
about everything except Chef
Chuck Le Mieux' job ... Mike
knows what he wants ... and if
it can't be his way, he'll do the
work.
About the reasonable prices

for gourmet dining, George
understands costs ... and it's
always been his wish to give
people a great meal without the
high price.
Don't forget those five tables
and six counter seats facing a
window ... 31 in all ... and
play it safe by calling ahead for
your reservation.
Mediterranean Kitchen is one
place you won't believe actually
exists.
HAD BEEN OPENED A
MONTH ... but Dr. Alan
Dorfman and Dick Masuda held
grand opening of their beautiful
Jovan restaurant ... next to
Jacques in Bingham Office
Plaza on Telegraph.
Dr. Richard Lutz compares
the ambience and decor to that
of Annabelle's in London,
England ... He's partner with
Alan's brother Dr. Mike
Dorfman in their chiropractic
operation ... Was also birthday
celebration for Fran Rassler,
there with Rick, and Mike's
wife, Shelly Dorfman.
About 300 people made the
scene and had hors d'oeuvres ga-
lore ... Was to be 6 p.m. to 9
p.m. ... but no way ... it lasted
long after ... til 1:30 a.m. in
fact ... enjoyed also by Alan's
wife, Marcia; Dick's wife, Kay;
Alan's mother • and father,
Chuck and Joyce Dorfman; Dan
Hyatt, Jovan general manager;
Jim Allemon, general manager
for both Jovan and Jacques;
Carol Gold of Sacchi, Donna
Levine of Bardone's; Rhoda
Weiss of Rokiki; Arthur Klein;
,Bob Benson; Jac Le Goff; etc.,
etc., etc. etc.
Thanks ... to Doug Schubot
... for reminding me about it at
the Alzheimer's affair.
FIFTEEN YEARS AGO, a
group began its career at a place
called Duffy's Tavern in Union
Lake ... The leader was Danny
Jordan and his magnificent
singer, Marlene Hill, who has
been wooed by many biggies in
show biz ... She and Danny
were wed ... and Marlene was
more interested in raising a
family.
Now, Jan. 8 thru Feb. 11, The
Loving Cup will return in a sort
of reunion ... to the place they
started ... It's now called The
New Duffy's ... on Cooley Lake
Road ... and owned by Candy
Gotts.
DELICATESSEN WAITER
took his son to the zoo, where
the boy watched an attendant
toss a slab of raw meat into the
cage of a roaring tiger ...
"Papa," asked the boy, "why
didn't that man serve the meat
nicely like you do?" ... The wai-
ter whispered to his son, "Confi-
dentially, tigers are rotten tip-
pers."
MYSTERY
THE
MUNCHER WRITES
In an era of heavy metal
music, Madonna and other
screamers, there's still hope for
nostalgia buffs. The 1940s Radio
Hourat the Attic Theatre cap-
tures the spirit of that decade
and it is a visual and musical
treat. The setting is the Hotel
Astor's Algonquin Room studios
of radio station WOV.
