BEST OF EVERYTHING

Restaurants Galore

Continued from preceding page

knotty pine paneling and
hanging plants. You can still
get the great Big Wheel sand-
wich and the small but tasty
shrimp salad. But the menu
has been expanded to include
everything from steak to
scallopini of veal to a good
selection of fish and seafood
dishes.
"With
restaurants
sprouting in the suburbs, we
wonder what's going on
downtown. Benno's may be a
bit dated but we remember
frequenting this tiny spot,
with reservations, of course,
and dining in fine style on
elegant china. Benno's was
never an eat and run place.
Its trademark is leisurely din-
ner, continental fashion.
"We hear Carl's Chop
House is still going strong.
For decades, this popular
place has been buying the
best prime beef and lamb and
serving it in gargantuan por-
tions. We loved the relish tray,
cottage cheese and pickled
herring.
"The Caucus Club must be
as sophisticated as ever and
still serving wonderful Dover
sole and baby back ribs.
"Joe Muer's has always
been a favorite and a Detroit
institution for generations.
This restaurant never lets
you down with the freshest
seafood from both coasts as
well as Dover sole, Norwegian
salmon and whitefish. We lov-
ed the tole slaw, stewed
tomatoes and creamed
spinach.
"How about Little Harry's?
It was always a beauty to look
at and the food was
outstanding.
"Another elegant spot is
The Old Place in Grosse
Pointe where, we hear, women
still dress to the nines.
"In midtown Detroit, we
recently had dinner at Nor-
mandie Bar and Gril. The at-
mosphere is friendly and
noisy, shaking the glossy
showbiz photos on the wall.
Steak, seafood and the
widely-acclaimed burger are
favorites.
"We also reminisced at
Lelli's which was just bustl-
ing as we remember it. The
minestrone, salad, steak Lelli
and all the trimmings haven't
changed. It was like
revisiting an old friend.
"We can't forget Roma Cafe,
Detroit's oldest Italian
restaurant. When you dined
there, you didn't have to eat
again for a week.
"The chic London Chop
House is still rated as one of
Detroit's premiere
restaurants. It was the place
to see and be seen and the
food was first rate. It would be
fun to do some dining-spot-
hopping to bring back

memories, rediscover old
haunts and find out who's
munching there now.
"We've been to many
Italian restaurants but none
so far have held a candle to
the old Larco's in Detroit. The
salads are almost always dis-
appointing, veal choices are
slimmer and the great
minestrone and antipasto are
missing. The Larconame con-
tinues at 12 Mile and
Evergreen but we wonder if it
lives up to its reputation.
"We haven't tried it yet, but
it's definitely on our must
list. We've seen the menu and
note that the antipasto with
olives, cheeses, shrimp and
salami is $5. We remember
when it came with the meal
and the best part was dipping
crisp Italian breadsticks into
the wonderful shrimp sauce.
We also noticed some of the
old Larco's veal dishes, such
as veal parmesan, aren't
shown on the menu. But
eating is believing and it's
not fair to prejudge.
"If you get tickets for a
matinee at the Fisher, have
lunch at the Garden Cafe in
the Fisher Building. The set-
ting is delightful, a sunny cor-
ner of the Detroit Gallery of
Contemproary Crafts. You
can feast your eyes on pottery,
glassware and jewelry and en-
joy the most functional art of
all — the food.
"Salade nicoise, salmon
salad, big bran muffins, car-
rot cake and fruit plates are
favorites and the price is
right.
"One of the best Oriental
restaurants around is Moun-
tain King on Maple Road in
Birmingham. All the stan-
dard Szechuan and Mandarin
dishes are on the menu. The
food, which includes Can-
tonese, seems lighter and
more delicately prepared-
than in some other Chinese
dining spots.
"Pike Street Company on
Pike Street in Pontiac seems
to be an in place. Chef Brian
Polcyn is noted for simple but
tasteful presentations. Some
of the most popular are
shrimp sauteed with home-
made chorizo sausage, Mich-
igan brook trout stuffed with
shitake mushrooms and
sauteed veal chops with wild
Oregon mushrooms and onion
compote.
"It appears that the offer-
ings are more gourmet than-
simple or somewhere in the
middle. The chef makes his
own vinegars, stocks and
soups which don't add much
to the food. If it's true that the
chef makes the restaurant,
there's room for improvement
in the cuisine and the
selections."
