CATERING FOR ALL OCCASIONS

BEST OF EVERYTHING

ONE END OF Pepper
Square, Grand River and
Haggerty, has a Coney Island
eatery called Mr. B's
Other End (northeast) is Mr.
P's Pasta ... The latter is
where a fastly being dis-
covered little restaurant is
located.
Mr. P's Pasta, owned by
Phil Petachenko, is what the
doctor ordered ... He has
been a chiropractic doctor 36
years ... and has his offices
down the street ... But Phil
knows the human body ...
and the kind of things that
- are good for it ... which is
why he opened his Mr. P's
Pasta ... for folks to eat the
healthier way.
Mind you now, this is not a
health food restaurant ...
but you won't find any chem-
icals or preservatives in your
food ... Even the water is fil-
tered of all chlorines ...
chemicals ... Pasta is made
every day from 100 percent
seminola flour ... Also made
daily are its own rolls, breads
and pastries.
Since no preservatives are
used, everything must be
prepared fresh . . . Nothing is
fried at Mr. P's Pasta ... and
herbs are used as much as
feasible in substitution for
sodium, which is kept as low
as possible.

o7.1

chickens are fresh, not frozen,
baked in a special Mr. P's
sauce ... The fish is also
baked ... Icelandic cod ...
and Phil's sandwiches, corned
beef, pastrami, turkey, roast
beef, etc., 95 percent fat free,
have all natural ingredients
and low sodium.
It's not a big place ... with
seating at tables for just 86
people ... but ever so clean,
bright and airy ... Phil
opened his Mr. P's Pasta in
July of this year ... and has
already been creating a mild
sensation.
After coming in with a
couple of friends, Free Press
columnist Bob Talbert intro-
duced himself to Phil and in
his pleasant southern drawl,
said, "Doc, I can tell that
sauce didn't come out of a
Chef Boy-Ar-Dee can."
Nothing pretentious by any
means ... just good, whole-
some, healthy, tasty food ...
Phil's wife Dee paints porce-
lain and has some of her
work on the walls ... The
kitchen is open for all to see
. . . ha hidden counters . . .
and prices are most reason-
able . . . At either lunch or
dinner, there is a small loaf
of fresh bread placed on the
table ... a nice touch I've al-
ways enjoyed ... Should any-
one want salt or pepper, Dr.
Petachenko isn't so stupid as
not to permit it ... He has
shakers for both on the ta-
bles.
This is the kind of eating
spot where decor is very sec-
ondary ... walls are plaster
with dining area wood-
covered at the bottom half.

Paper signs saying "Mr. P's
Pasta" are still in the win-
dows ... Something will un-
doubtedly be done about hav-
ing a permanent sign.
I had a wonderful lunch ...
It's called "Seafood Delite
Salad" ... with sea legs (a
pressed combination of fish
and crab, mostly fish), rotini
and a special dressing on bed
of crisp, shredded lettuce.
It is one of three salads at
Mr. P's Pasta . . . A lot of
folks rave about the chicken
cacciatore, baked till tender
in his own Italian sauce ...
served over a bed of
freshly-made spaghetti . . .
The sandwiches are huge ...
called "Super Stacked" and
well worth the name.
Dr. Philip Petachenko,
with his handsome goatee
and long suave mustache, is
practicing what he preaches
with Mr. P's Pasta ... keep-
ing people healthy.
JUDITH BLAZER, who
plays Eliza Doolittle (Julie
Andrews' role) in My Fair
Lady opening at Fisher Thea-
ter by Michigan Opera
Theatre, Nov. 14 - Dec. 7, is
the daughter of Cantor Wal-
ter Blazer; one of the cantors
at Temple Beth Miriam in
Elberon, New Jersey ... She
played the role of Ariel for
21/2 years on the television
soap, "As The World Turns".
FOUR YEARS AGO,
Bluma Ellman wrote a musi-
cal show for Temple Israel
• . but it had to be shelved
because money was needed
instead for a new youth room
• . There wasn't enough con-
fidence that it would draw a
large enough crowd.
- Finally, Rabbi M. Robert
Smye said, "Let's do it now!"
• . and with money from the
Michael J. Syme Scholarship
Fund, it was presented.
About 1,000 people saw
"HA-LE-LU-YAH (emphasis
on the HA!)" in two fun-filled
nights at Herman Hall of
Temple Israel . . . so much
more than expected that they
ran out of programs the sec-
ond night.
Bluma wrote it, produced
it, and co-directed the show
with Dr. Stuart LaKind
an entertaining musical com-
edy about the building of
Temple Beth Israel ... from
an apparent dream by Adam
and Eve Cohen (Marci and
Dr. Marvin Shulman).
The cast of 50 did an excel-
lent job of amateur presenta-
tion ... with even Rabbis
Syme, Harold Loss and Paul
Yedwab in a show-stealing
scene ... Rabbi Syme singing
a solo of "We Reached The
Ifnpossible Dream" ("Im-
possible Dream" music) . . .
and Cantor Harold Orbach,
with yarmulke and talesim,
vocalizing very clever "Some
Enchanted Shabbos" parody
on "Some Enchanted Eve-
ning."
One song and dance
number called "Walnut Lake
and Drake" to tune of "42nd

Street" was with three gen-
erations ... Grandmother
.Peggy Miller ... her son
Larry Miller ... his daughter
Nicole Miller ... Peggy is
just as good as she was as
Peggy Dermer at Greenbush
Inn years back.
The chorus gals were great
... and put the younger las-
sies to wide-eyed looksee with
their high kicks and symetric
unison ... Peggy, Estelle
Cantor among the nine.
Marci Shulman was superb
in her role as Eve Cohen ...
with a magnificent operatic
voice that is better than her
talented days as young Marci
Rose.
Overture at beginning
sounded so professional ... as
did musical background for
singing and dancing ... Lit-
tle wonder ... It was the
Fenby-Carr Quintet ... Gene
Fenby was show's musical di-
rector.
Each scene, songs and
dialogue had theme plots for
Temple Israel ... from first
building on Manderson Rd. in
Palmer Woods to youth group
to sisterhood to brotherhood
to couples club to new temple
on Walnut Lake Rd., etc. . . .
It was a fast-paced show
with many entertaining
facets ... In the audiences,
relatives and friends of per-
formers were slightly amazed

talc vale I4

v

knew about . especially - the
friends.
Bluma Ellman left no stone
unturned in her production
prowess ... In the lobby was
a cage with bunnies . . . for
reason ... As Adam and Eve
said, "Ane we multiplied" ...
Peggy Miller singing "Love
Will Keep Us Together" and
dance group of bunnies on
"Love Will Keep Us To-
gether" ... Such correlation
is with much merit.
So much happy hard work
must have gone into this
production ... No need for it
to end . . . Many segments
will make a lot of people
happy ... especially those at
homes for the aged.
Finale was Rabbi Paul
Yedwab playing guitar and
singing "Halelujah" in He-
brew ... and the entire cast
then joining in.
Too bad every person in the
Temple Israel show can't be
mentioned ... they were that
good . . . like Etta Mermell
doing "Second Hand Rose" or
Larry Bensman singing "De-
troit, Detroit" to "New York,
New York" tune or Norton
Stern as J.R. Dallason sing-
ing "This Land Is My Land"
and "This Land Is Your
Land" or Lillian Weisberg
doing her Mae West bit, and
so many others.
The cast of Temple Israel
. on stage ... and behind
the scenes ... did itself
proud.
