BEST OF EVERYTHING
IN SEPTEMBER, Nicky's
on W. Big Beaver, Top of Troy
Bldg. Concourse, will celebrate
its fourth anniversary . . . True
it is still three months away .. .
but very little doubt that this
will come about.
The amazing thing about
Nicky's celebration-to-be is that
because of this locale's previous
trackrecord, few people gave it
the chance to last so long.
It had formerly been
Bonaventure with four owners
and then three . . . Sydney's,
bossed by a booking agent and
former Elwood Casino emcee
. . . Kogy's, opened by Kogy
Aronson . . . and after his death
by Jack and Fred Bean, who
made a valiant attempt at
keeping it going.
When Nicky's opened in
September 1983, many said it
would follow the rest . . . They
didn't know owners Nick Sorise
and barrister John Reaser .. .
who wouldn't just be bossmen,
but do everything possible to
make it go . . . even bussing
tables and carrying trays .. .
which they are still doing.
Folks didn't know what an in-
terior transformation Nick and
John wuld make . . . with
seating for 256, including 55 in
a bar-lounge area . . . and
Class had come to this locale
. . . as Nicky's surrounded itself
with beautiful mirrors, live
greenery and lighting seldom if
ever seen at that time in any
restaurant hereabouts . . .
Laser beams cast their rays on-
to tables in glamorous, relaxing
and comfortable setting . . . If
more light were desired, it
could be sprayed onto the entire
table or booth.
Another added look of
elegance was the high-gloss
laminate in various parts of the
room . . . along with luscious
grays, burgundy and brown .. .
Even the chairs at Nicky's have
their own identity . . . padded
arm rests and chrome legs that
go almost around the entire
structure . . . 6,000 lineal feet
of brass was tastefully utilized
. . . on rails going down into the
slightly lower bar area . . . and
other regions .. . On the out-
side, where once the three
previous names stood, a big
brass "N" is majestically
highlighted by "Nicky's of
In the bar area, the complete
counter top and tops of floating
island tables are highly styled
with laser lights beaming soft-
ly down into small circles .. .
Etched glass illuminated by
blue neon surrounds the bar.
None of the other three places
had a dance floor . . . Nicky's
does . . . with full mirror in
back of the raised stage . . . and
around the sides.
The food at Nicky's has never
been better . . . as customers en-
joy a wide variety of dishes ex-
pertly prepared by executive
chef Jim Lehane.
Among the present favorites
is something Jim has scoured
all over for . . . and finally found
. . . a company in Indiana that
produces special range-fed
chickens who eat grass and
A year ago, Jim had what was
diagnosed as an unstable
angina heart condition . . .
Since then he has been wat-
ching his food intake . . . and
naturally that of his customers.
This Amish chicken is not
processed in slaughterhouse
machinery style . . . It is
prepared by hand . . . The
feeding of these chickens great-
ly reduces the chances of
salmonella ... which scare was
recently aired on a 60 Minutes
Nicky's Amish range-fed
chickens are breasts only .. .
and a new chicken dish is serv-
ed every evening . . . like lemon
and herb, heart smart in olive
oil, raspberry, etc. . . . Jim even
makes his own Teriyaki sauce
. . . marinating the chicken and
cooking it without skin . . .
Very few places cook their
chicken skinless which greatly
reduces the retention of fatty
substance . . . and not many are
as serious as Nicky's about its
methods of cooking for health
Our waitress, Margo
Silverberg, so very efficient,
gracious, smiling and pleasant
. . . brought us two types of
Amish chicken breasts . . .
Chicken California (red pep-
pers, green peppers, onions, zuc-
chini, fresh herbs, sherry wine,
olive oil and parsley) . . . and
Chicken Teriyaki marinated by
Jim Lehane has been at
Nicky's over three years . . . and
clearly a very popular favorite.
Nicky's is open Monday
through Friday, 11 a.m. to 2
a.m. . . . Saturday, 6 p.m. to 2
a.m. Appearing now for danc-
ing is Attractions until end of
May . . . Northern Lights comes
in June 2-27.
Nick Sorise and John Reaser
are not only lucky to have a
chef like Jim Lehane . . . but
also people like very per-
sonable, sweet and cooperative
Mary Ann Kale, general
manager . . . and that trick-a-
minute gent, John Cetrorw,
night manager (ask him to
make three balls out of the one
in his pocket).
People like Nicky's . . . Its
personnel, food and congenial
atmosphere are big pluses .. .
That long canopy by valet park-
ing outside is a very welcomed
IT WAS A DREAM to open
a fun ice cream parlor that pro-
mpted Dave and Wendy Yaffa to
build the Melanie Ice Cream
and Sandwich operation on Far-
mington Road just north of
