hile shoveling pa-
pers about in a
move at home that
never came about, I ran
across an interesting letter to
the editor at Nation's
Restaurant News, Feb. 18,
1985.
"I have been the restaurant
and night editor of the
Sacramento Union for the
past 24 years. I dine out about
five nights a week and then
give my impressions in "Nite
Life," which is a feature that
appears in the paper every
Friday morning.
"What prompts me to write
this letter is an item that ap-
peared in the Nov. 26 issue of
Nation's Restaurant News
concerning the Coach House
restaurant. According to the
owner, critic Marian Burros,
who writes for the New York
Times, all but caused the
restaurant to fold because of
her critique.
"I'm getting a little sick
and tired of these so-called
food critics trying to play God.
I would wager that many of
them couldn't even fry an egg.
"These self-appointed,
holier-than-thou characters
visit a restaurant and order a
meal. If it isn't to their liking,
they break their asses getting
back to the typewriter and
proceed to crucify the
restaurant.
"Some, I understand, may
even go back two or three
times. It would be interesting
to know whether it ever oc-
curred to them to talk to the
owner and/or manager and
give them an opportunity to
rectify whatever may have
been wrong.
"Of course I have been serv-
ed meals that were not to my
liking, but I have the guts to
send the meal back to the kit-
chen. Nine times out of 10,
whatever was wrong is cor-
rected. I do not hesitate to
talk to the owner, especially
when I receive letters com-
plaining about the food or
service.
"One of these days
restaurateurs and their
associations will get their
acts together and start suing
some of these so-called
experts.
"One final thought. It is
just too bad that food critics
do not realize that we all have
different palates, which are
affected by emotions,
alcoholic beverages, etc., and
they are by no means im-
mune."

(Written by Mike Dante,
"Nite Life' ' editor, Sacramen-
to Union, Sacramento, Calif.)

REPRESENTATIVES

from German estate wineries
will take part in a "German
Wine Tasting" 12:30 p.m. to
3:30 p.m. . . . This Sunday .. .
at Charley's Crab on Crooks
Road in the Northfield
Hilton, Troy.

"German wines are very
diverse and distinctive," says
Chuck Muer, president of
C.A. Muer Corp.
The wine tasting will be
held in the main dining room
. . . with hors d'oeuvres serv-
ed . . . Tickets are $15 at the
door . . . and can be used for
a $15 discount on dinner that
evening . . . Not a bad deal.

WHEN SULTAN'S

restaurant opened Sept. 1 last
year, people thought the
beautiful 96-seater would
become just another lovely
passing dining fancy.
But owner Walid Eid's ex-
cellent food and very per-
sonable staff made believers
out of many who continually
return for Lebanese dining at
its best.
To the many who still
haven't been there . . .
Sultan's is not the easiest
place to find . . . It's around
back in sector behind
Dunham's, north of I Browse
in Robin's Nest Shopping
Center on Orchard Lake Road
and 14 Mile . . . Good food and
service always win out,
though . . . and Walid has

them returning . . . plus new
faces every day.
His shish tawook, charbroil-
ed chicken breasts chunks, is
an outstanding dish . . . and
the vegetarian or regular
stuffed grape leaves and stuff-
ed cabbage leaves rank
among the best . . .
Everything at Sultan's is
made with the best olive oil
that can be purchased . . . a
big reason why so many doc-
tors eat there . . . It's extra
virgin olive oil . . . which can't
get any better.
If you like rice pudding, and
I'm trying it everywhere,
you'll love the one at Sultan's
. . . thick, no eggs, with
rosewater, cinnamon, chopped
walnuts and the expensive
mastica herb which many
places don't use because of its
expense ($50 per pound).
FREE JAZZ concert this
Sunday at Prudential lbwn
Center, Civic Center Drive in
Southfield, has Tom Saunders
jazz at 7 p.m.
GOOD WAITRESS Dept.
. . . Karen Blanchard . . . at
Alia's, Greenfield north of 11
Mile . . . personable, efficient,
smiling and pleasant.

TERRY DYE,
choreographer for the local
auto shows, and one of the
dancers in "Dance Fever," will
be with four other members of
his dance company . . . when
the "Join Us At Joey's On Jef-
ferson" has its evening of dan-
cing, fun and entertainment.
Jim Paramo, Nathan
Seskin and Jump Street will
also perform . . . along with
dance champs Mark and Pat-
ti Prock.
It's this Wednesday, 6:30
p.m. to 2:30 a.m. . . . corner of
Van Dyke.
Donation of $10 per person
includes hot and cold hors
d'oeuvres, dancing, frivolity,
etc. . . . with proceeds to
benefit Variety Club charity
for children.
WATER COMES in large
wine carafes and one of the
Owners or both are always
there to see that everything
goes smoothly . . . This is the
very popular E.G. Nick's
which was two years old in
February.
There's seating for 250 plus
50 private in the former
Schuler's locale on W. Maple
off Orchard Lake Road.
Its minestrone soup is with
oodles of vegetables and slic-
ed potato . . . The linguini
and clam sauce has three
pasta colors, green, beige and
white . . . The big seller,
lemon chicken, is outstanding
. . . Seems like I'm in a rut .. .
