NEW FACES AMONG the
regulars keep popping up . . . and
this is a good sign that new res-
taurants enjoy because it proves
they are creating a sense of notor-
iety that bring people to see for
This is the case at E.G. Nick's
on Maple Road, a short way from
Orchard Lake Road.
There are cars galore as we
pull up . . . and the usual wait is
not long because E.G. Nick's em-
ployees are trained to seat people
as quickly as possible . . . Very
few people who know about E.G.
Nick's leave without waiting .. .
They know what's in store for
them when seated . . . And many
of those who didn't wait usually
The former Wyn Schuler's
locale in West Bloomfield is as
different as the sun and moon .. .
The intimate friendly atmos-
phere is highly conducive to in-
formal dining at its finest . . . and
very few leave without saying
hello to someone they know.
As usual, the short wait was
well worth it on our most recent
visit to E.G. Nick's . . . Our wait-
ress, Penny Brooks, was sweet,
smiling, efficient and most cor-
dial . . . not the rushing kind and
most certainly not the unatten-
If there is any fault at E.G.
Nick's it is that the portions are
too big . . . But then again, how
can this be a fault when persons
are not forced to eat every morsel
on their plates?
The fresh, crisp, cold salad is
more than plentiful . . . no skimp-
ing whatsoever . . . and the hot,
homemade, soft garlic sticks are
a real treat.
I had the lemon chicken . . . it
was wonderful . . . so tender and
tasteful . . . My campanion
enjoyed charbroiled salmon . . . I
tasted it and could see why the
expression told to me. "Best I've
You won't find any canned
vegetables at E.G. Nick's . . . and

E.G. Nick's gives much value
. . . It is owned by Elia Nicholas,
Tony Belli and Greg Nicholas .. .
Much of the credit for E.G. Nick's
great showing, besides good food, •
good service and reasonable
prices, is the very important fac-
tor of its owners always being
there . . . You'll never find a time
when one or the other or all of
them are not there.
Elia drives back and forth from
the Highland House . . . Greg
comes and goes from E.G. Nick's
of Lapeer . . . They also have
Guss's in Howell . . . And Tony
can always be found at E.G.
Nick's of West Bloomfield.
When you talk of cleanliness in
a restaurant, E.G. Nick's takes a
high number . . . Same goes for
the quality of food it serves.
It has been open since Feb-
ruary . . . and "The only time
we've been slow was during
Passover," says Elia.
This August (or maybe Sep-
tember) E.G. Nick's will also
have a separate carry-out store in
the strip center being built al-
most next door to the restaurant
. . . All foods will be cooked in the
E.G. Nick's kitchen . . . and
people wanting only carry-outs
can go to the private one desig-
nated for this purpose . . . Diners
will still be able to take carry-
outs directly from the restaurant.
E.G. Nick's goes from seven
salads to six sandwiches to six
pasta dishes to lemon chicken,
New York strip, bar b-q ribs,
bar-b-q chicken, chicken teriyaki,
greek lamb chops, liver and on-
ions, lamb shish kebob, etc. .. .
and seven gourmet pizzas (with
smoked chicken, with duck saus-
age, with shrimp, with lamb, etc.)
The wood burning gourmet
pizza oven, first of its. kind in
greater Detroit area, brings taste
of oak and fresh ingredients . . . A
rotisserie turns ribs and chicken
basted with family marinade.
No doubt about it . . . for infor-
mal dining, E.G. Nick's on Maple
Road stands out among the best.
WORD IS THAT A Greek-
town restaurant is looking for a
spot in the northwest area ..
Could it be Pegdsus?

ling Strings . . . with Randy Be-

Jerry Neely and Russell Green
. . . but the duo now at Jakk's
Chop House, Greenfield north of
Ten Mile, with their synthesizing
beat combining for a full sound,
are among unsung notables in
local musical circles.
Jerry's musical storehouse at
the piano is unlimited . . . and his
keyboard styling makes for much
listening and danceable music.
