T

heir dream had come
true . . . they own one
of New York's most
highly-acclaimed restaurants
. . . with a four-star rating
from the New York Times .. .
regardless of its 40x8 foot
closet-sized kitchen.
But now, ex-Detroiters
Barry and Susan Wine can
put out their excellent four-
star meals in a 2,300-square-
foot, $400,000 kitchen . . . He
is the son of Iry and Lil Wine,
former owners of Barry's
Surplus.
They closed their controver-
sial Casual Quilted Giraffe in
the AT&T Building on
Madison Ave. and 56th Street
in New York . . . and moved
their original Quilted Giraffe
into the sleek 4,000-square-
foot street-level space.
The Casual Quilted Giraffe,
which opened last August,
served a profitable 200 meals
a day at an average tab of $50
per person . . . But Barry and
Susan expected to serve bet-
ween 400 and 500 meals a
day.
So why operate two
restaurants? . . . And what a
great opportunity to get out of
the cramped kitchen space at
their Quilted Giraffe on Se-
cond Avenue and 50th Street.
On the side, the consolida-
tion of the two restaurants is
related to a plan to license the
Quilted Giraffe name to a
Japanese restaurateur who
wants to open a branch in
Tokyo . . . The menu and
decor would be similar to that
of the Casual Quilted Giraffe.
"It's not that the Casual
Quilted Giraffe lost money. It
didn't, but it wasn't ap-
.preciated," says Barry. "Many
New Yorkers misunderstood
"casual" to mean "cheap," he
said, "and the industry
thinks of Houlihan's or Ben-
nigan's when it hears "casual
restaurant?'
Barry and Susan have not
changed the $75 fixed-price
dinner at their Quilted
Giraffe, a restaurant con-
sidered by most food profes-
sionals, restaurant critics and
New York gourmets as one of
the city's finest.
The former high-profile
Casual Quilted Giraffe was
never embraced by the New
York food establishment .. .
many of whom complained
that its prices were too high
and its black and stainless
steel decor too impersonal.
WHEN SELECTING car-
rots, look for those that are

firm and clean, with a smooth
texture and good color .. .
Deep orange carrots contain
more Vitamin A than paler
ones.
SOME FOLKS thought
Chuck Muer was sort of
"phasing out" of the
restaurant game to take it
easy . . . with recent sale of
his Charley's taverns and
Meriwether's on Telegraph
. . . But not the bow-tied. blue
eyed gent folks like so much.
New purchase by C.A. Muer
Corp. is that of Harrison's in
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., a
300-seat restaurant which
will be converted into a
Charley's Crab . . . and ex-
pected to open January 1988.
His other Florida opera-
tions are . . . Chuck & Harold
in Palm Beach; Charley's
Crab, Palm Beach; Charley's
Crab, Sarasota; and Charley's
Crab opening this year in
Jupiter . . . Another location
-will soon be under construc-
tion in Boynton.
Chuck still owns fine dining
restaurants in Michigan,
Ohio, Pennsylvania and
Washington.
BET YOU didn't know that
the apple seed doesn't
necessarily grow into a tree
producing the same type of
apple it came from.

REMEMBER
Chef
Theodore, site of the present
Armando's locale? . . . The jol-
ly restaurateur has opened
another Chef Theodore .. .
but not here.
Theodore Mitropoulos is
now sole owner of his own
spot in Philadelphia, Pa. . . .
seating 60 people . . . He is
cooking, hosting and singing
on 5th and Spruce, three
blocks south of Independence
Hall . . . in an almost all
historic area.
People liked Chef Theodore
here . . . and folks in the Phil-
ly region will, too . . .
especially when he comes to
their table and knocks off an
operatic aria or two.
ICE CREAM data . . . Tis
said that 98 percent of all
households in the U.S. are
consumers of ice cream .. .
and production last year
reached over a billion gallons.
IF UNCOOKED green
beans snap when broken in
two . . . they're fresh.
GOOD WAITRESS dept
. . . Donna Campbell . . . out-
side on patio deck of Norm's
Oyster Bar, Franklin Rd. off
Northwestern Hwy . . . per-
sonable, smiling and very
efficient.
The elevated outdoor deck
at Norm's seats 80 comfor-
tably . . . and many of the

waitpersons rotate both in-
side and outside.
RON CODEN Show isn't
taking any more chances .. .
after being smoked out of
closed Red Cedars on
Telegraph and Nine Mile
back in April . . . Ron has
booked his trio into Adam's
Landing on Highland Road,
inside the Pontiac Airport .. .
a smokeless nightclub . . .
Group starts tonight for five
weeks . . . Fridays and Satur-
days . . . with shows at 9:30
and 11:30 . . . Cover is $5 but
customers can stay for both
shows.
PEOPLE ask where they
can get Best's Kosher low fat
and low sodium salami and
hot dogs.
According
to
local
distributor, Larry Warsh of
Raskin Foods, they're
available west of Woodward
and north of Eight Mile .. .
A & P, Kroger's, Shopping
Center, Farmer Jack, Great
Scott and many
independents.
The low sodium and low fat
has a white label . . . others
are yellow or red . . . Any
questions, call Larry at
759-3113 . . . Chris Walsh,
Rosner & Liss Public Rela-
tions in Chicago, also has a
Best's toll-free Hot Dog Hot
Line, 1-800-621-2304.
WHILE most people find
August a great month to take
a vacation or just lay low from
the high heat and humidity,
traveling folksinger Judy
Goldstein will find herself in
Atlanta, Ga. . . . at the
Twelfth Annual CAJE Con-
ference,. Aug. 23-27.
CAJE (Conference on Alter-
natives in Jewish Education)
is billed as the largest gather-
ing of Jewish educators in the
Western world . . . drawing in-
terested professionals from all
over the states, Israel, South
America, Cuba, etc.
Judy will be more than
grateful for the promised air-
conditioned accommodations
as she prepares two concerts,
one for adults and one for
families . . . in addition, she
will give two workshops for
professionals . . . all this
while at the same time get-
ting ready for a busy 1987-88
season that already includes
New York and many local
engagements . . . Organiza-
tions everywhere are gearing
up for the celebration of
Israel's 40 anniversary.
