jalapeno pepper sauce and grilled
poblano pepper with tamale stuff-
ing and tomato salsa.
A goodly number of the choic-
es on City Grill's menu are also
available in half-portions at half-
price plus one dollar.
With preparations of Ed Janos
served by persons like Mark Pau-
tuk, probably one of the finest in
this region, a meal at City Grill
can be nothing but outstanding...
Mark is among an excellent serv-
er team assemblage ... His easy-
going dexterity in telling just
about everything on the menu
without so much as a note, and
answering questions in a very
knowledgeable and most sincere
way, is truly a fine dining art.
And many will remember gen-
eral manager Ray Hanson,
whose 10 years as London Chop
House manager were most en-
joyable ones to all.
The former Sly Fox's Sally.ls_
Saloon, named after Sally San- -
ford, one of the West Coast's most
popular madams, who served as
mayor of Sausilito, would have
no place in today's City Grill ...
Gone, too, in the former Sally's
Saloon, is the large painting by
noted artist Robert Thom that
highlighted the piano wall, and

Both the food and
building changed.

the tasteful nudes in large gilt
frames that decorated other
walls.
Its dark wood ambiance of a
classy city bar is still there, ac-
companied now by a unique met-
al grillwork along the top of the
bar area and a giant oval light
fixture ... Replacing Robert
Thom's painting is a full-length
mural on the back wall that was
painted by Janisse Larsson, wife
of designer Dennis Larsson.
Diners at City Grill are given
an intimate, homey feeling with
the use of dark wood and rich col-
ors that present a modern and
traditional look ... The green
marble lobby brings back mem-
ories of a more elegant era, but
the subtle zebra-stripped chairs
ease folks into the next century
with a crisply modern yet pol-
ished look.
The over all design and change
from Sly Fox to City Grill is al-
most as exciting as the food.
Hours of operation are seven
days ... Lunch, Monday through
Friday,-11 a.m. to 3 p.m; dinner,
Monday through Thursday, 5
p.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Sat-
urday; 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Sunday,
4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
A downstairs area wine cellar
is very popular ... It is one of four
banquet rooms, each holding 30
people ... The wine cellar; .with
its wine racks, own bar, rich ma-
hogany, stone wall, stained glass

and fireplace, is a great setting
for cocktail receptions as well.
Machus is one of the very few
companies locally to have had
two master chefs ... In fact, I
can't think of another outside
Schoolcraft College ... Leopold
Schaeli, retired but a Schoolcraft
instructor, at Red Fox, and now
Ed Janos at City Grill ... Both
possess outstanding respect
among chefs everywhere, as well
they should.
There are many amenities
that make City Grill an out-
standing restaurant, not the least
of which is the master chef char-
acteristic of everything being
homemade ... and presented
with colorful array ... Having its
own pastry and bakery shop on
the premises is important ... The
desserts, like white chocolate
cheesecake with chocolate crust,
warm apple -anti-spice bread
sandwich with cider saboyon,
grand marnier-ginger creme
brulee, warm chocolate hazelnut
cake with housemade caramel ice
cream, etc. are pieces of culinary
art ... and the breads that come
to tables before dining — four-
grain hearth, sourdough and
croissant breadsticks — are in
baskets that are refilled with ra-
pidity.
The combination of casual el-
egance, Ed Janos, Bob Machus,
and prices well within reason, is
no small factor why it has tak-
en off and is maintaining a steady
pace of quality goodness.
City Grill has received much
acclaim, but none more than for
its ableness to weather a contin-
uous consumer onslaught.
It has done what was to be ex-
pected when a master chef like
Ed Janos and superior restaura-
teur such as Bob Machus
come together ... produce a win-
ner.
A LOT OF familiar names in
a 1936 copy of a program from
the Jewish Community Center
which opened in the early 1930s
on Woodward and Holbrook.
Earl Draimin, editor of the
original Center News, sends the
copy from North Hills, Calif. ...
It was for a show called "Com-
munity Center Capers," with
dances arranged by Edith
Muskin, Earl writing lyrics and
music to a couple of songs, or-
chestra directed by Hy Goldman
(Hal Gordon) ... Rube Zissman
was in the cast of characters and
Al Betz did a_tango ... A lot of
nafrms..._ A lot of memories.
