House in Southfield's Towne
Square Building, David Neault,
is remembered by many as a
waiter for Les Gruber at Lon-

there 1980 to 1986 . . . David
opened the Whitney as a wait-

til his present post was general
manager at the Rattlesnake
Club from 1988 to 1993.
Also at Morton's, its day
manager, Penny Zywick, has
been there since it opened just
over a year ago ... She was bar-
maid 31/2 years at Ritz-Carlton
Dearborn's the Grill Restau-
rant.
If you think that meat is all
Morton's serves, try the salmon
and pasta dishes and be pre-
pared for a pleasant surprise.
AT ONE TIME, there were
many evenings when a lot of
people came but couldn't be
seen . . . They were hidden in

Tavern, former Lemon Peel, on
Woodward.
People like to see each other

and the place is beyond recog-
nition.

Windsor to taste the famous

They are being marketed na-
