GRAND
OPENING
heralded festive welcome to
Alia's Restaurant on Green-
field north of 11 Mile.
"The backbone of my life
and who the restaurant is
named after" said Jim Sage
as he put his arms around
wife Alia, in seventh month
of their second child.
The place has been entirely
changed ... hanging plants,
plants on ledges, slow whirl-
ing ceiling fans, canopy out-
side and inside, wide open
expanse now, pictures on
walls, goldfish tank, wicker
chairs, green-padded booths
outlined with wood, mirrored
walls ... intimate family din-
ing.
Chris Hatzilis, former Beef
'11 Bird boss on Southfield is
Jim's head chef ... and
turned down the lights .
rolling out a huge flaming
prime ribe of beef a la the
late Sammy Lieberman and
Raleigh House ... An accor-
dianist emcee led the cere-
monies ... and a troupe of
six exotic dancers individu-
ally shook to musical tapes.
People took pictures ...
especially of the dancers ...
as they did their movements.
Chris twirled his mustache,
son Louie carved the roast
beef ... hors d'oeuvres were
passed around ... and the
buffet had food that folks
enjoy ... Southfield was re-
presented by councilpersons
Vicki Goldbaum, Susan
Goldstein and Sid Lantz;
treasurer Roman Gronkowski
and code enforcement gent
Mort Stein ... Mayor Char-
lotte Rothstein represented
Oak Park, other side of
Greenfield ... where Jim and
Alia previously owned Re-
mal's.
Place was packed with
people happy for this fine
couple ... Ray Goldbaum and
daughter Yael; Willie Geer,
Marty Lesser, Cary Green-
berg, Bernie Stein dancing
with Mort; Blanche
Tuchman, etc.
NO MORE OLIVERIO'S
at Pine Lake Mall, Orchard
Lake Rd. ... with original
The Aristocrat owners, Dr.
Lina Laxa and Dr. Dony
Laxa taking it back.
ran
Fellow
who
Oliverio's,Artie Oliverio,
seems to have flown the coop.
As of Sept. 29, following
his return from Milan, Italy,
the very popular Jack
McCarthy takes over ... and
it will be called "Jack McCai
thy's Aristocrat" ... This is
good news, since Jack is
probably one of the finest
gentlemen in the reslaurant
business ... He still hosts the
"Friday Feast" show on
Channel 7, but will probably
give up his little 60-seater
restaurant on Cass Lake Rd.
in Keego Harbor.
Jack knows more about
Cajun cooking than most
folks ... having been born in
New Iberia, La., heart of
Cajun country ... Much of
what he'll serve at his Aris-

tocrat will probably be the
original New Orleans fare.
Jack's restaurant on Cass
Lake Rd. seats only about 60
for dining ... At his Aristo-
crat, he'll easily seat about
twice as much ... and serve
cocktails.
Big things presently for
Jack are his wonderful cater-
ing ... and teaching Cajun
cooking in homes.
Morris Margulies recently
purchased the Pine Lake
Mall ... and having Jack and
wife Carole is probably the
first biggest and best thing
that has happened to him
there.
HY HORENTSTEIN may
have retired from the delica-
tessen business ... but his
former place hasn't ... in
Dexter-Davison Plaza, Ten
Mile and Coolidge.
It is now called "Sara's
Deli" ... opened Sept. 10. ...
owned by Morris "Moishe"
Goodman ... and named
after his mother, Sara Tug-
man, who makes the stuffed
cabbage, gefilte fish, meat-
balls, goulash, etc.
Her picture as an 18-year-
old Sara Goodman is on the
wall when customers ' enter
... and on the cover of the
delicatessen menu.
Moishe started in the deli-
catessen business as a busboy
at Lou's on Six Mile when 15
years old ... In three years,
he was managing for the late
Shel Loewy ... and stayed
there 20 years.
His wife, Ruth, worked ten
years at Lou's and does ev-
erything he does ... plus
take care of their four-
month-old Jeremy and 13-
year-old David.
In the kitchen, Chef Mark
Levine makes the soups,
chopped liver and foods from
Sara's guarded recipes.
Moishe's sister, Eva Tug-
man, is his cashier.
It seats 58, has a counter
with four stools, is much
lighter than before ... com-
pletely cleaned and remod-
eled, has pictures on walls of
movie stars in their heydays
... Almost everything has
been replaced plus booths re-
covered and boxed.
Just about all the food at
Sara's Delicatessen is made
there ... The corned beef is
bought raw and cooked like
yesteryears in an old-
fashioned wet steamer ...
Roast beef and tongue also
... They make their own
potato salad and cole slaw,
dressings, potato latkes, luk-
shen (noodle) pudding,
double-baked bread cut by
hand, etc.
Moishe worked with
brother Marty Goodman the
20 years at Lou's and both
opened the old Stafford's
locale together on Seven Mile
and Evergreen ... Now he
has branched out by himself
... and wants to make Sara's
like the first Lou's on Six
Mile years ago.
His love is in the old-time
delicatessens ... as Moishe's

theme implies ... "Turn back
the hands of time — the old-
fashioned deli is back."
Sara Tugman's dream
(that's the title of a sandwich
named after her) has been for
Moishe to have his own deli-
catessen ... It is now a
reality.
THE WORD IS OFFI-
CIAL now ... didn't want to
say anything until I was cer-
tain ... Jakks Lounge on
Greenfield and Ten Mile has
been closed by owners Dick
and Aggie LaCombe.
Those who enjoyed going to
what some called "their sec-
ond home" are drawing own
conclusions as to why Jakks
was closed.
Hardly any doubt that it
will open again ... only
question is by whom.
For certain the place needs
a facelift ... and a change in
name wouldn't be too bad.
FOURTH LOU'S DELI-
CATESSEN,
owned by
Marty Goodman and Steve
Loewy, is another in fast food
deli chain they are building
... It is like a McDonald's or
Burger King would be ...
with 102 seats for people to
sit after going up and getting
their food.
Locale of Lou's number
four is at former Jan Drake
Greenfield Cafe on Greenfield
just south of Nine Mile.
Kelly Burgess writes ...
"The Sweet Sixteen" birthday
party that Dr. Marshall and
Dee Shapiro threw at
Ginopolis Restaurant, 12
Mile and Middlebelt, Far-
mington Hills, for their beau-
tiful dark-haired daughter,
Stacie, will long be remem-
bered by friends and relatives
(125), some of whom flew in
from Toledo, Ohio and from
Bangor, Maine for the won-
derful affair.
"Always congenial and sin-
cere, Dee and Marshall,
Stacie and their handsome
son, Mark, stationed them-
selves at the entrance to the
restaurant, greeting each
guest as if every one's
presence made the party
worth having and making
each guest feel personally
welcome.
"Underneath the splurge of
pink and silver spangled bal-
loons attached to the ceiling
of the dance floor, 65 teena-
gers and some adults brave
enough to try it, rocked and
rolled, dancing the night
away with more energy than
this writer has seen in a long
time.
"At lovely tables adorned
with tiny pink balloons in
charming black top hats,
other guests enjoyed delicious
Greek salads, chicken, ribs
and the famous Ginopolis
gyros stuffed into pita bread
(lamb, tomato, onion and let-
tuce) and drinks.
"During a sentimental and
touching ceremony by Dee
and Marshall, she presented
daughter Stacie with a lovely
bouquet of long-stemmed
American Beauty roses. Mar-
