FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1990

magine a restaurant deco-
rating its walls with the
present menus of com-
petitors! . . . That's almost
like saying, "Try the others,
too" . . . And would you
believe, it's just about what
Matt Prentice is conveying at
his new Morels Restaurant on
Telegraph Road in Bingham
Farms.
He may be a fine
restaurateur, but Matt can
also be considered one of the
top publicists in the Michigan
restaurant industry . . .
especially when it comes to
food, dining spots and their
chefs.
About those framed menus
at Morels, people who attend-
ed the recent grand opening
were slightly amazed that in
this day and age with such
dog-eat-dog goings on in the
business world, let alone the
restaurant game, such a sight
as competitors' menus would
be decoration pieces at a
newly-opened dining
establishment.
Martin Scot Kosins has
one night off at Sebastian's,
flagship of the Unique
Restaurant chain which
operates Morels among its
eight dining spots . . . Sun-
days . . . and here he and his
trio were for the grand open-
ing . . . Three years ago, Mar-
ty came to tickle the ivories
at Sebastian's for one night
and has been there ever
since .. .
Leo Knight remembered
taking pictures at the former
Jacques, Morels site
predecessor The
bridegroom was trapped in
the men's room and the
hinges had to be taken off the
doors to get him out . . . Leo
got his wedding pictures and
the bride and groom lived
happily ever after.
Bob Golding and wife, Dr.
Leslie Miller, discussing hot
tubs with Sweet Lorraine's
Gary and Lorraine Platman
. . . Bob and Leslie have one
and Gary and Lorraine need-
ed tips on the tub they're get-
ting . . . Mandell Berman
with a sharp-looking striped
shirt; John Bloom (of course),
Sheila and Dick Sloan, Ed
and Suzie Radner, Gorman's
Bernie and Muriel Moray.
A reunion for Mita Pa-
jewski, professor at Tel Aviv
University, here visiting on-
cologist son Dr. Bar-Lev Pa-
jewski of Henry Ford
Hospital, and friend of 43

years, Mira Linder; Norman
and Mildred Patler, Matt's in-
laws and wife Alicia's
parents; Mr. B's Rob Jackier,
Leo and Sue Knight, Doug
and Barb Wartel — Doug
bucks the women's lib thing
by being a divorce attorney
only for men.
Michigan is one of the most
unsung states in the country
when it comes to cuisine, says
Matt . . . It has six master
chefs, and two of the five on
the United States Culinary
Olympics team of 1988 in
Frankfort, Germany (Jeff
Gabriel and Dan Hugelier),
are Michiganders . . . In 1992,
Skyline Club's Michael
Russell will be captain .. .
Michigan gets hardly any
recognition for its chefs and
food, says Matt.
Morels executive chef is
Tim Cikra, sous chef is Mar-
tin Falk, and Matt's manag-
ing partner there is Theresa
McWilliams.
Jon and Addie Greenberg
. . . 10 years ago, when Matt
opened Deli Unique on
Greenfield in Oak Park, he
wanted to renovate the place
he bought from Dave Rabin,
but didn't have the money .. .
Jon Greenberg & Associates
did it for him without charge
. . . and he is credited as one
of the persons who helped get
Matt started.

Grand opening time was
not only festive but also will
bring cheer to a lot of needy
folks . . . All proceeds from a
silent auction for restaurant
booths at Morels, over $3,500,
went to the Capuchin Soup
Kitchen in Detroit, which
provides meals, clothes, toys
and help for substance
abusers . . . Winning bidders
also received an American
Dining Card for use at all
Unique Restaurant Corp.
restaurants.
Many remember when
Matt Prentice started out .. .
and so greatly appreciated
the helping hands given to
him . . . He still does . . . only
today as president of the
highly respected Unique
Restaurant chain.
MIGHTY GLAD to see
that Carl "Cubby' Bayer and
Henry "Honey" Berris will be
inducted into the Michigan
Jewish Sports Hall of Fame,
Nov. 5, at Congregation
Shaarey Zedek . . . Both are
gone but rememberred for
their superior athletic
abilities and being a couple of
really swell guys.
Ben Bagdade will also be
"Bo"
inducted
and

Schembechler will receive the
Al Foon Memorial Award .. .
Sportscaster Don Shane will
emcee . . . For more info and
banquet tickets, call Mark
Unger at the Jewish Com-
munity Center, 661-1000.
CONGRATS . . .
to
Seymour Iwrey . . . on his
60th birthday . . . Party with
100 attendees was at
Dionysos Taverna in
Renaissance Center.
AMONG THE items in the
silent auction at Variety, The
Children's Charity "Lights,
Camera, Auction" preglow,
auction and sneak preview,
Nov. 14 at Northland Theatre,

Morels was
impressive at its
fine grand opening.

BLACK TIE dinner dance

Chapter of Metropolitan

teams and winning bidders

pro/am squads playing the
next day at Franklin Racquet
Club on Northwestern . . . For
info, call the Foundation,

WHILE GOING to Nor-
thern High, Sylvia Watnick
was called "Sutch" . . . Today
it's Mrs. Martin Altshuler
and she's been away from
these parts 45 years, now liv-
ing in Lauderhill, Fla. .
Sylvia writes that it's getting
close to her 1942 Northern
High class reunion and she's
trying to track down some of
her old classmates . . . Sylvia
can be reached at 5850 NW
44th St., Lauderhill, Fla.
33319.
LIGHTS GALORE went
flashing like mad! . . .
Cameras began clicking! .. .
Robin Orechkin must have
thought the Excalibur Hotel
in Las Vegas was being robb-
ed or something . . . Fact is
somebody did take some loot
from the place . . . Robin .. .
The nine bucks she invested
in the dollar slots brought her
and husband Mark not the
$1,000 Robin thought she had
won, but a whopping $10,000.
OPERA NIGHT is every
Wednesday evening at De
