WHAT DO YOU LOOK
FOR the most before selecting

Friday, Sunday,
Wednesday & Thursday

a neighborhood restaurant?
. . . Cleanliness? . . . The food?
. . . The service? . . . Its ambi-
ence?
Whichever, all are impor-
tant facets to many . . . while
most will consider the first
three.
Alia's Family Restaurant,
owned by Jim and Alia Sage,
opened its doors July 17, 1986
. . . seating 165 . . . at Green-
field, north of 11 Mile Road,
former site of Irving's Delica-
tessen . . . now located at
LaMirage Mall on Northwest-
ern Hwy . . . and can boast of
all four customer look-for as-
pects.
The Oakland County Health
Department is tough . . . espe-
cially some of its inspectors .. .
Average grade hovers around
the 80s mark . . . Jim and Alia
received a 94 recently . . . The
menu is extremely diversified
. . . with six appetizers, six
salads, 26 sandwiches that in-
clude 15 cold on three types of
bread, six melts on grilled pita,
three hot and six burgers .. .
There are 14 entrees plus eight
seafood favorites, a children's
menu, seven "side dishes and
ten desserts (five homemade.)
A breakfast menu has nine
omelettes, nine pancakes and
blintzes (all made with or
without Eggbeaters), with six
specials . . . There are 13 lunch
specials, and six dinner spe-
cials that change daily.
The waitresses try as hard as
possible to create customer
pleasantness . . . and work
feverishly toward constant ef-
ficiency.
Remodeling at Alia's took
Jim and Alia six months .. .
Today, it has a large green
awning outside that seems to
set the pace for Alia's color
scheme inside.
Boxed mirrors are all about
. . . there's a service counter for
waitresses . . . with green and
striped white awning hovering
above.
The dining area is wide and
spacious . . . with all booths of
padded green leather seats and
green clothbacks . . . plus nine
tables . . . a large aquarium .. .
plants all about, etched glass,
framed pictures, ceiling fans,
recessed lighting, dark woods,
light woods, cloth on wood
panels separating booths.
When Jim and Alia sold Re-
mal's in Oak Park and took
over the former Irving's which
at that time was no longer
owned by the Guttman family
(Rose, Irving, etc. now at
LaMirage) the head chef im-
mediately became Chris Hat-
zilias, who used to own and op-
erate Beef 'n Bird on Southfield
Road.
Original intent was to also
sell corned beef and pastrami
. . . among other delicatessen
products . . . in conjunction
with their variety of foods .. .
However, since Jim and Chris

DANNY RASKIN

admit it is not their specialty
as Irving's, they disbanded the
sale of them to concentrate on
foods that they know best.
Jim and Alia make friends
easily . . . He is always at the
restaurant . . . and many cus-
tomers have followed him from
Remal's in Oak Park.
Remal's was their first full-
service restaurant . . . Jim and
Alia had it a year-and-a-half
. . . which time he calls his
"learning period".
Alia's is one of the few res-
taurants that have a Braille
menu available . . . The last
one was trascribed September
1986 by Ruth Kushner, Sister-
hood of Cong. Shaarey Zedek
. . . in sponsorship with the
Tri-County Braille Volunteers
. . . She will make a transcrip-
tion of the new menu.
It is open seven days . . .
Monday thru Friday, 7 a.m. to
10 p.m. . . . 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.
to 8 p.m.
Although many restaurants
would be very happy; a 94 per-
cent rating was a disappoint-
ment to Jim . . . He got a fine 98
percent at Remal's in Oak Park
. . . Cleanliness is a large
byword with Jim and Alia .. .
as one of the most important
points in their running of a res-
taurant.
What the Guttman's had
built up had been torn down by
its next owner . . . But Jim and
Alia Sage have brought it back
to life again . . . as Alia's Fam-
ily Restaurant.

CHICAGO-BASED Best's
Kosher Sausage Company has
developed a refrigerated roll of
corned beef hash which can be
used as a quick gourmet entree
or sliced, rewrapped and then
stored in the refrigerator. . . .
Best's own extra-lean corned
beef, made from choice beef, is
the prime ingredient . . . The
beef is cured, seasoned, cooked,
then sliced and blended with
Idaho potatoes and premium
onions.
