Great Dogs and Cleanliness
Make A Name For New Coney

DANNY RASKIN

Local Columnist

W

hat makes one
Coney Island opera-
tion different from
another? . . . Cleanliness for
sure . . . and homemade for
certain rather than frozen
foods . . . Topping off the com-
bination is experience . . . A
good Coney Island spot will
have this latter ingredient as
a very important asset that
customers can quickly
recognize.
Tinos' Coney Island, open-
ed only about two months, is
not easy to find the first time
. . . But then again, neither
was Sultan's, the fine
Mideastern restaurant to
which it is next door around
the side of Robin's Next Plaza,
Orchard Lake Rd. and North-
western Hwy.
Just like shortly after
Sultan's opened, people are
also finding Tinos' Coney
Island . . . In both instances
they each have something to
offer . . . the combination of
cleanliness, homemade
freshness and experience.
Experience abounds at
Tinos', seating 60 including a
counter with six seats . . . The
three owners who know the
true workings of a good Con-
ey Island restaurant are
always there at some period
or another.
Jimmy Lenbesis, formerly
14 years at Lafayette Coney
Island downtown, is at Tinos'
all seven days of the week .. .
He is the son of Demos
Lenbesis, a Lafayette Coney
Island fixture for 30 years .- . .
and still calling 'em out with
gusto.
Nick Capsocolis, also one of
the two owners at Hellenic
Coney Island on Evergreen
and 12 Mile, is there Tuesday,
Saturday and Sunday . . .
Andy Rekoumis, owner of
Plato's Coney Island in
Garden City, works the Tinos'
crowds Wednesday, Thursday,
Friday and Sunday . . . These
are plus other days Nick and
Andy are there.
Also still there is Bill
Raspoptsis, preparing the
homemade soups as he did at
the former Coney Island
operation on the West Bloom-
field site.
Here is a Coney Island with
pride . . . another very impor-
tant ingredient . . . and it
spills over onto the customer
. . . A good Coney Island has
to have this . . . there's too
much riding on its food .. .
The fellows know this . . . like

grinding their own fresh
hamburger daily, and slicing
and making French fries and
hash browns . . . Tinos' Greek
salads are becoming of note,
as is its chili . . . plus Greek
tacos and Greek pizza.
But don't discount other
foods there . . . like grilled
chicken breast on pita bread
. . . and the highly popular,
low-priced breakfast specials
all seven days a week .. .
There's even a kiddie menu,
too.
Tino's is open Monday
through Friday 7 a.m. to
8 p.m., Saturday 7 a.m. to
5 p.m., and Sunday 9 a.m. to
3 p.m.
Where did the name Tinos'
come from? . . . It's a Greek
resort island about five or six
hours by ship from Athens .. .
which is hours by plane from
New York, birthplace of the
first Coney Island hot dog .. .
Where was the second one?
. . . Right here in Detroit on
Lafayette.
TERI BOCK, wife of bar-
rister Steve Bock, is best
known as a devout chocoholic
. . . "If it isn't chocolate, how
can it be good?" . . . But golf
has a spot in her heart, too
. . . Ask Thri to tell you latest
golf story . . . For safety sake,
don't ask Teri to give you any
of her chocolate!

MAURICE CHEVALIER

sang about little girls getting
bigger every day as the
"Thank Heaven for Little
Girls" recorded- music wafted
through the Adat Shalom
Synagogue social hall.
It was the annual Women's
American ORT fashion show
. . . and about 300 gals watch-
ed the wondrous weavings of
Leah Marks as she displayed
still another highly successful
production.
This was a very adroitly
done segment with the late
Chevalier singing . . . Leah's
models walked the long run-
way in mock pregnancy wear-
ing clothes from Maternite
Corner of La Mirage Mall .. .
as a leather buggy was wheel-
ed by one of the fair lassies
. . . and cleverly ended with
baby crying while the model
hurriedly whisked the car-
riage off stage.
The fashion shows produced
by Leah Marks are not the
outlandish types of disco-
mania sorts that so many
think they must have for the
beat . . . or those utterly bor-
ing shows where the models
walk and leave as if they had
a hot date waiting for them to
get finished.

Her shows are true profes-
sionalism . . . productions
throughout . . . and this one
for Women's American ORT
drew three photographers
and fashion writers from four
newspapers.
Thirty models put on a
45-minute presentation of
lavish entertainment
thoroughly enjoyed by the
attendees.
The ORT fashion show
opened with a lighted
background as five models
displayed glamorous dresses
from Salley's Designs . . .
while dancing lights rolled
along the large runway sides
"now those are pearls of
wisdom," said Steve Tapper as
the girls wore long pearls
from Tapper's Jewelry that

Cleanliness,
freshness and
experience are
helping Tinos' in
West Bloomfield.

were accentuated against the
black dresses.
Much applause for the girls
showing dresses from Elaine
B's . . . and getting a lot of the
audience talking about the
fashions for larger-sized gals
. . .Another interesting sight
was Elaine B's showing
larger models wearing
elegant clothes . . . and then
smaller-shaped ones wearing
the same things . . . This is
one of the Elaine B's hidden
traits . . . being able to make
small-sized dresses when, one
sees a large model.
The dreary thought that
winter will soon be here came
with the first sight of snow at
Adat Shalom Synagogue .. .
It sprinkled the models wear-
ing skins of Roth Furs in
Rochester . . . Even inside, the
snow didn't look inviting, but
the furs did.
Models wearing swimwear
from Beach Bound caused
Bill Roth Hellman to remark,
"Isn't it awful when you look
at things like this and can
think only about furs?"
Then came the young set
. . . following dancer Andrew
Crawford in his clown-face
makeup . . . The little show-
stealers wearing clothes from
Kiddly Winks were cute as
buttons.
The luncheon by Jeff
Rosenberg at Adat Shalom
was good as usual . . . His
kosher food has to be among
the tops . . . Didn't get the
waiter's name, but good to
hear him ask if we would like
