Modern Delicatessen, 25290
Greenfield, Oak Park, 968-8000.
Some say it opened in 1926 but
most agree that Modern Deli-
catessen unlocked its doors in
1936. Whatever the year, it is
one of Detroit's oldest names
in the restaurant business. Mod-
em's second location, on Green-
field just south of 1-696, still
serves the same homemade tra-
ditional Jewish foods for which
it has been known, only in a
much more modernistic at-
mosphere. Tray catering? Of
course. (I)



Chick-N Ribs, 118 S. Wood-
ward, Royal Oak, 544-1211.
Much has been said about this
dine in and carry-out restaurant
whose specialties of broasted
or bar-b-q chicken and bar-b-
q ribs have received much at-
tention, but as regular
customers say, the proof is in
the tasting. It's open seven
days, Sun.-Thurs. 11-10, Fri. &
Sat. 11-11. (0



Alia's, 27167 Greenfield,
Southfield, 559-8222. A good
family restaurant serving Amer-
ican and Lebanese cuisine, Alia's
owners Dania and Ed Farah are
proud of their homemade spe-
cialties prepared from natural
ingredients. It is open 7 days
a week serving breakfast, lunch
and dinner. Carry-out of its en-
tire menu is available as is off-
premise catering. (I)

Embassy Suites, 28100
Franklin Rd., Southfield 350-
2000. There is much to say
about Executive Chef John P.
Vogelmeier. Being a graduate
of the Culinary Institute of
America, a member of the
Michigan Chefs de Cuisine and
teacher of private cooking class-
es. (0

Excalibur, 28875 Franklin Rd.,
Southfield, 358-3355. When for-
mer owner Pat Archer passed
on, people said Excalibur would
also go. However, they didn't
reckon with Marty Wilk, own-
er/chef who has made it one of
Metropolitan Detroit's marked-
ly popular dining and dancing
spots. It's Frank Sinatra's fa-
vorite while in the local area.
Entertainment is Tues. thru Sat.
and complete catering at Ex-
calibur plus homes, halls, etc. (I)

Gateway Deli, 21 754 W. 11
Mile, Harvard Row, Southfield,
352-4940. A delicatessen man
from years back is bossman at
Gateway Deli, Lenny Fidler, giv-
ing customers a lot of confi-
dence in the enjoyment of its
traditional homemade Jewish
dishes. Gateway serves break-
fast, lunch and dinner and is like
a meeting place for its clientele.
A big specialty is party trays
with Sunday a day of rest from
much hard work. 0)

Gold Coin, 24480 W. 10 Mile
in Tel-Ex Plaza, Southfield, 353-
'878. The Gold Coin features

tonese dining with complete

by Howard Lew, whose Ming
Palace of Northland years back
provided him with the needed
experience for complete cus-
tomer satisfaction. It is open
seven days. (0

Southfield Marriott, 27033
Northwestern Hwy., Southfield.
356-7400. The Garden Court
restaurant is an area favorite
with its wide open expanse and
fresh look within an intimate at-
mosphere. Daily buffets and
daily specials are prepared by
Southfield Marriott's fine chefs.
Early bird "Super Savers" are
available daily 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Jane's Place, 25851 Lahser,
Southfield, 354-3640. One of
those little spots people hear
about with good home cooking
and all-around homey atmos-
phere for lunch and dinner with
a wide variety. Seating is in-
doors or on the outdoor patio
overlooking a garden with farm-
like motif planted and arranged
by Owner Jane Kladzyk.

rateurs in the point of service
owns and operates McVee's.

experience to promote what
every customer wants, quality
and satisfaction. Moderately-
priced lunches and dinners in-

graph, Southfield, 358-1310.

seafood plus menu items of tra-
ditional English food has been
a favorite for over 11 years. It
is open seven days a week with
birthday discounts and Fre-
quent Dining Friends Program
among its special features. (0

Star Deli, 24555 W. 12 Mile
Rd., Southfield, 352-7377. This
is one of Michigan's largest del-
icatessen carry-out operations,
but you wouldn't know it from
the size. And everything is
homemade, tole slaw, potato
salad, chicken salad, tuna sal-
ad, egg salad and much more.
Star cooks its own corned beef
and pastrami, and the 7-day op-
eration includes a major spe-
cialty— beautiful tray catering. 0)



Charley's Crab, 5498 Crooks
Rd., Troy, 879-2060. Its dining
room was once the beautiful
great room of an auto baron's
Grosse Pointe mansion, sheer
elegance, and the true concept
of Chuck Muer seafood cuisine
is highly exemplified here. But
don t think for a moment that
this is all, just seafood. Charley's
Crab's menu, although highly
fish oriented, also includes dish-
es to delight other palates. (0

Mountain Jack's, 26855
Greenfield Rd., Southfield, 557-
0570. Noted for serving excel-

Franco's Cafe, 3614 Rochester
Road, Troy, 528-0153. This is
another of those "sleeper' types
of Italian restaurants you hear
about, as authentic as its own-
er, Sicilian-born Franco Gior-
lando. Wife, Anna Maria, can
prepare most of the items Fran-
co makes but concentrates on
the restaurant's banquets and
party catering. His innovative
ways of cooking are also a rev-
elation, but authenticity is the
keyword of success for an Ital-
ian dining spot that has been
"discovered." (0

New Seoul Garden, 27566
Northwestern, Southfield, 827-
1600. Authentic Korean and
Japanese dishes are the theme
foods at this restaurant with a
sister Seoul Garden in Sterling
Heights. Authenticity is brought
to the table where favorites
such as beef, chicken and
shrimp are prepared on a bar-
beque grill in front of cus-
tomers. Floor seating and a
sushi bar also add to its appeal. (13)

Mon Jin Lau, 1515 E. Maple,
Troy, 689-2332. Enjoy unique
dishes with Thai and Indone-
sian influences as well as clas-

ern Hwy. at 11 Mile between
Lahser and Telegraph, South-

selections offer customers a va-
riety of ways in which to dine.

Radisson Plaza Hotel, 1500
Town Center, Southfield, 827-
4000. The two stylish restau-
rants at popular Radisson Plaza

vidual goodness. Bouquets is

go's Cocktail Lounge features
a bistro atmosphere with en-
tertainment for dancing Thurs-
day through Saturday. The
entire hotel has been rated four
diamonds by MA for the many
services it offers. (i)



Andiamo Italia, 7096 E. 14
Mile Road, Warren, 268-3200...
One of the East Side's most pop-
ular Italian restaurants, Andi-
amo and owner Joe Vicar' are
proud of an ability to bring tru-
ly fine dining with legendary
Chef Aldo Ottaviani. Surround-
ings of the beautiful Andiami

folks who have discovered that

arates them from a true culinary
jewel. 0)
