in Pontiac presents

of ribs and large Greek salad,
$18.95.
New dessert items vary week-
ly ... like Heath Bar pie crunch
with soft center, Reese's peanut
butter pie, cookie & cream ice
cream pie, Big Blitz Snickers pie,
and caramel apple Granny ... As
before, Bob still makes the fine
rice pudding at Brass Pointe.
The prices may be low and the
quality high, but portions at
Brass Pointe are far from skimpy
... There's almost always enough
food people can take home for an-
other meal.
Bob came to America from Yu-
goslavia in 1967 ... Danny arrived
in 1979 ... Their hard work at
pleasing customers has paid off
in a big way ... and it is wonder-
ful to see that rather than sit on
their laurels, they have pumped
in about half-million dollars to
remodel Brass Pointe in a ges-
ture somewhat like saying
thanks ... while giving customers
an even better place to dine.
The booths are print-covered
padding with subtle dark green
print and inlaid tables sur-
rounded by mahogany... There's
mahogany between the padded
booth back and padded seat ... no
more losing things or sitting
where it can't be cleaned ... The
wide open and airy surrounding
is due to one side where a full-
wall used to be ... It is now lined
with booths topped by squared
wall columns ... the other side a
nice and cozy smoking area (not
one that starts at the next table!)
to give privacy in dining ... Slant-
ed blinds cover large picture win-
dows alongside the western
section of the room facing Or-
char4 Lake Road.
Brass Pointe is open Mon.-
Thurs. 11 to 11; Fri. & Sat. 11 to
12; Sun. 12 to 10 ... Also with a
fine wine list for choice vino by
the glass, half carafe, full carafe
or bottle.
On all seven days, either Bob
or Danny and one of their wives
are always there ... No absentee
ownership at Brass Pointe ... No
having others greet customers
who have become like friends ...
Both Rita and Bernice are hos-
tesses, changing off daily but
there together on Friday, Satur-
day and Sunday.
Family members all pitch in to
help ... Bob and Rita's 22-year-
old daughter, Violet, is hostess;
their 17-year-old son, Kosta, as-
sists as a cook when needed,
mostly on Fri., Sat. and Sun.
weekends; Danny and Bernice's
13-year-old daughter, Olivera,
helps in the carry-out depart-
ment and does whatever is
needed.
The smiling, fast and efficient
service at Brass Pointe is exem-
plified by waitresses like Lori
Miller, a bio-chemistry major at
Wayne State University; and An-
drea Gervasi, both of whom have
been at Brass Pointe five years

... Lori is a dinner waitress and
Andrea works lunch and dinner,
plus being the head waitress
training Brass Pointe gals on
what and what not to do.
This is a restaurant with a lot
going for it ... good food, good ser-
vice, wonderful atmosphere ...
and that hidden essential ... char-
acter.
Put them all together for an
unbeatable combination and
you've got Brass Pointe, a fami-
ly restaurant that satisfies in
every way ... Customers can ask
for nothing more.
CONGRATS ... to Norma and
Phillip Layne, wed on D-Day
(June 6, 1944) ... on their 50th an-
niversary ... Reception this Sat-
urday by children Renee and Joe
Stillman, Michael Layne, Heidi
and Jeffrey Baill and Mindy and
Joe Young, for relatives and close
friends, will be at Temple Israel
to celebrate the golden years.
AVID CRITICS are her own
grandchildren ... Birmingham
artist Carole Masters lets them
paint on canvas with brushes and
real acrylic paint ... Then Ali,
Harry, Avery and Ethan compare
their work with hers and wonder
why they can't paint like "Nana".
Carole will be at the Art Birm-
ingham '94 exhibition and art
fair, June 18, 9 a.m. to dusk and
June 19, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with
food and drinks from area mer-
chants ... No admission charge,
and artists recognized by their
white shirts and black ties.
WHEN MILT Markovitz
throws a party, he tosses a doozie!
... Well, okay, so the 1500 or more
people didn't come because it was
his birthday ... And he didn't have
to shell out the big bundle this
party must have cost ... But the
large throng was there shindig-
ing a good time at the recent
opening of the unbelievable Mac
& Ray's on Lake St. Clair.
Open bar, food everywhere,
even the kitchen, music, danc-
ing...People were awe-struck at
the new harbor restaurant on
North River Drive whose interior
looks like a cruise ship.
It was Milt's party, too, be-
cause he and Roland Beurer of
R L B Design, created and sup-
plied the spacious 3,000 square
foot kitchen, bar and service bar
areas, oyster bar, etc., that Ex-
ecutive Chef Jeff Baldwin and his
large crew really appreciate.
Norm LePage is chief consul-
tant for the huge restaurant op-
eration, and Roger Petri, general
manager ... Both are longtime
Northwest area favorites.
CONGRATS ... to Jerry Davis
... on his 75th birthday ... cele-
brated with wife Lillian, their
children and grandchildren at the
MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas
... to 6-year-old Brittany Alison
Kramer ... on her birthday ...
Young Brittany recently gradu-
ated kindergarten at Temple
Emanu-El.
