VALID MONDAY THRU FRIDAY

rom the outside, it
looks like the kind of
place you'd normally
drive by . . . and once inside,
you might wonder why you
ever stopped.
But the very unprenten-
tious Bubble & Squeak on
Commerce Road between
Union Lake Road and Bogie
Lake Road is the kind of in-
formal place so many people
don't know even exists .. .
and is high on the ladder of
dining sleepers.
The former shot-and-a-beer
joint probably with billiard
table, darts, etc. of 13 years
ago, is today a 110-seater
English-style tavern with
open bar area, booths and
tables . . . owned by Lorraine
and Wayne Yeokum.
There were nine of us .. .
with most thinking we were
in for a "roughing-it" evening
. . . Instead, surprise of sur-
prises when the menu was
unfolded by folks at the table
. . . and even more shocking
was the food variety and
goodness.
Of the nine, eight enjoyed
their meals . . . I had the
salmon, which turned out to
be the evening's only disap-
pointment . . . heavy skin,
bones and chunky . . . not
flaky and tender like
Norwegian salmon . . . It
wasn't worth the chance to
have a bone stuck in my
palate.
The impressive menu is
very much on the English
side . . . and the restaurant is
patterned after the tradi-
tional taverns of London and
thereabouts.
Where did the name Bubble
& Squeak come from? . . .
Corned beef and cabbage
creates a bubble and squeak
sound as it simmers . . . As
the vegetables bubble, the
corned beef squeaks 'tis said.
Dr. Marshall Shapiro,
whom Barry Solomon has
dubbed as the guy who'll eat
anything, started off his meal
with onion pie and then went
to the conventional roast
duck with orange sauce .. .
Onion pie is an old English
favorite of cheddar cheese,
onions and potatoes . . . Dee
had the luscious-looking and
quite delicious crab legs .. .
Linda Solomon and Barbara
Moretsky were in a raving
mood over their breast of
chicken Chantilly with ar-
tichoke hearts, asparagus
spears, mushrooms and

cream . . . The dish was a
Channel 7 "Friday Feast"
feature.
Bubble & Squeak's menu is
extremely diversified . . .
centering much on English
dishes like shepherd's pie,
Yorkshire pudding, Scotch
eggs, English mixed grill
(lamb chops, duck sausage,
tenderloin), chicken pot pie
much like the meat pies
brought by the English to the
colonies, and so many more
British delights, including
Bubble & Squeak's big fish
and chips favorite. Filet
mignon with mushrooms dux-
elles and bearnaise is a
takeoff of the classic French
dish, fliet de boeuf
Charlemagne . . . Bubble &
Squeak grills it instead of
roasting, and tops the filet
with mushroom duxelles and
bernaise sauce.

You look at the place with
its whirling ceiling fan, little
green curtains between
booths, high ceiling in center
and lower at each end, fram-
ed posters in booths of Music
Man, Oklahoma and others
and slowly realize it's kind of
cute.
The prices are quite
reasonable . . . and Bubble &
Squeak can be said to give a
truly honest drink.
Joe DeLuca had blackened
tuna and didn't leave enough
to nibble on . . . Our hostess,
Tammy Howald, was pleasant
and gracious . . . Mike Ab-
dullah, who waited on us, was
fast and efficient.
When Bubble & Squeak
gets busy, which is becoming
quite often, owner Wayne
Yeokum helps out in the kit-
chen . . . It's nice to know that
a restaurant is owned by so-
meone who knows food and
cares about how it is served
. . . a very big reflection on
culinary acceptance.
All makes of cars im-
aginable . . . plenty of park-
ing . . . porch with awning
and a small sign . . . If you
stop, chances are high for
return visits . . . The clean
Bubble & Squeak could well
become near the top on your
list of places to go.
WALLS ARE now going up
for the much-touted new
Garden Room at Cafe Cor-
tina, considered by many
among the area's finest
Italian restaurants . . . 10
Mile Road east of Orchard
Lake Road.
The Garden Room, like a
new toy for Adriano Tonon,
owner with wife Rina, is ex-
pected to open first part of

December, holding from 45 to
60 people . . . It will be main-
ly a party room, but open dur-
ing the busy weekends also,
when not being used for
affairs.
Cafe Cortina's large outdoor
herb gardens have drawn
raves from national
restaurant publications .. .
It's food and service are con-
sidered standouts.
DINNER WAS good . . .
but excellent second feast for
the eyes and ears an excep-
tional standout . . . at recent
"The Great Gala" black tie
preview opening of Les
Miserables by Michigan

The impressive
menu is patterned
after the
traditional taverns
of London.

Opera Theater at Fisher
Theater.
Patrons dined at the Recess
Club, Hotel St. Regis or
Pegasus In The Fisher, with
cocktails served in the Fisher
Building lobby from 5:15 to
6 p.m. . . . Our dinner at Hotel
St. Regis was very well
prepared and presented.
Grand drape of the
2,100-seat Fisher Theater
rose at 8 p.m. for the first-ever
performance of the interna-
tionally highly acclaimed Les
Miserables . . . a superb
musical production with ex-
cellent casting and eye-
opening stage settings.
Afterglow in New Center
One Atrium had Governor
Jim Blanchard greeting well-
wishers but looking around to
see why Les Miz's cast hadn't
shown up . . . Shelly and
Peter Cooper, Dave Pollack,
Norma Petix, Peggy Phillips
and Van Dyan, Lou Sherman,
Bob "Hoosier Slim" and wife
Margaret Allesee (Allison),
Barbara Goldman, Rita
Fushman, Barry Keller,
Phyllis and Frank Mara,
Marvin Frenkel, Mary Lou
and Mort Zieve, Vic Ben-
jamin, Hilda Ettenheimer .. .
and so many more were there.

THERE'LL BE much new
decor with change of owner-
ship at Plaza Deli in Franklin
Shopping Plaza on North-
western and 12 Mile . . . Also
a lot of updating in equip-
ment so proper cooking can
take place . . . like homemade
foods, including soups.
