JEWISH ENSEMBLE THEATRE

A private banquet room seats
225 ... with a divider making it
into two rooms of 75 and 150 if
needed ... It is the site of many
bar and bat mitzvahs, showers,
etc. ... Another five to 20 people
can be accommodated for an in-
teresting private meeting or
small party in the wine cellar.
The wine cellar, by the way, is
a reason why Pike Street restau-
rant has been honored the past
four years by Wine Spectator
magazine ... It has an inventory
of about 2,000 bottles of wine
with 260 different brands.
In the main dining room with
its huge walls, brown print cloth
padded booths, servers are all in
tuxedo garb, full or without jack-
et ... The relaxed atmosphere of
this excellent restaurant has the
look of the '30s and '40s, with
framed wall hangings, white
linen tablecloths and white linen
napkins.
Everything is made from
scratch at Pike Street restaurant;
nothing bought pre-packaged ...
Soups and sauces are made only
from natural stock ... natural
chicken or veal reductions ...
Anything made by Derin and his
staff is done by them on the site
at Pike Street ... no outside pur-
chasing ... It does its own
butchering, and smokes the fish
it prepares.
Since opening 11 years ago,
two waitpersons, Ann Oliver and

Pike Street
has been
on top
for 11 years.

Tracy Jacques, have gone about
their efficient and gracious ways
with much customer satisfaction
... Also a big favorite at Pike
Street is pianist Greg Nichols, at
the keyboard Thursday, Friday
and Saturday, 7 p.m. to mid-
night.
Every person in the kitchen
working under Derin. Moore is a
culinary student or graduate ...
They come from Culinary Insti-
tute of America, Oakland Com-
munity College and Schoolcraft
College ... Since Derin has such
an investment with the offering
of his knowledge, each must as-
sure him that they will be with
Derin for awhile.
Plus being a member of Team
USA of the Culinary Olympics,
he is a member of the American
Culinary Federation, Michigan
Chefs du Cuisine, and winner of
a gold medal, six silver medals
and a bronze medal in stiff local
competition which, we may boast,
has some of the best chefs in
America.
Pike Street restaurant is proud
of its lofty perch in the world of
culinary excellence.
Having people like Nino and

Derin has presented a further en-
hancement of this pride.
Customers return because
they feel it, too.
CONGRATS ... to Michael
Schonberger ... on his special
13th birthday.
IT REM'S getting bigger each
year ... A wonderful problem to
have wondering where to put all
the people who attend ... Over
1,000 were at the recent ninth
annual Chocolate Jubilee by
Alzheimer's Association, Detroit
area chapter, at Ritz-Carlton
Dearborn.
Wonderful jobs done by Exec-
utive Director Dian Wilkins and
her helpers ... Marlene Borman,
Doreen Hermelin, Bluma Siegal,
John Bloom, Renee Mahler, Jack
Gold, Dede Feldman, Diane
Scholnick, Gale Burstein and so
many others.
This year's chocolate heaven-
ly event brought in a record
$150,000, with over 90 percent of
it going directly to support pa-
tient and family services.
Amyre Makupson, Channel
50's excellent news anchor, was
this year's chairperson and along
with Dian can have much radi-
ant pride ... No better talent any-
where than on the local
personality dias with Amyre
Sherry Margolis, Ruth Spencer,
Ray Lane, Rick Fisher, Harry
Hairston, Bob Allison, Cheryl
Chodun, Molly Abraham and
more.
American Gourmet furnished
Lady Godiva bags for the huge
throng but still many came with
large ones to fill up ... "Nothing
doing," said "policewoman" Mar-
lene Borman, who graciously
took the sacks away ... Ernie
Solomon admits that when it
comes to being a chocoholic, he
doesn't know when to stop ...
Sure doesn't look it ... Florin
Mark, head of Weight Watchers,
won't touch the stuff, but noth-
ing to halt hubby Dr. Bill Ross ...
Photog Bob Benyas said, "Look
at the photographer'' as he point-
ed to his tie with "the photogra-
pher" emblazoned in big letters
... Most unusual display was the
large chocolate mousse subma-
rine sandwiches by cateress
Annabel Cohen that were raffled
off ... The cheese and lettuce
were both white chocolate with
fruit dye, and the filling chocolate
mousse with raspberry sauce ...
Samples of the filling were given
out in little cups.
NO FUNNY STUFF when he
does his public relations work for
Ford Motor, but doing standup
comedy is Bill Carroll's hobby ...
He'll put it together with pianist
Fedora Horowitz in a night of
mirth and music at Congregation
Shaarey Zedek Men's Club's an-
nual paid-up membership din-
ner, Dec. 14 ... It'll be at the
synagogue's B'nai Israel Center
on Walnut Lake Road in West
Bloomfield ... For more info, call
Larry Jonas, 352-4010.0
