MEYER JEWELERS 75TH ANNIVERSARY

backward to keep a full- service
restaurant."
The shuttering of the eatery
\_,) leaves a hole in the community
since there will be no replace-
ment. Many businesspeople of-
ten entertain clients in the
restaurant; study groups squeeze
in a quick lunch- time session
over roast beef sandwiches and
coffee.
Rabbi David Nelson of Con-
gregation Beth Shalom feels it is
"a great shame" that the com-
munity has not been able to sus-
tain one or more kosher
restaurants.
"I recently returned from At-
lanta where I ate in three kosher
restaurants and none of them
was on the verge of closing," he
said. 'We should have enough
choices out there that this should
not happen."
Shirlee Bloom, the owner of
\- 2 Bloom's Catering, which lost its
kosher supervision last fall, said
Detroit is a tough area in which
to operate a kosher eating estab-
lishment.
"The public doesn't support a
kosher restaurant or the carry-
out places," she said. "Most of our
people will eat out but they won't
bring it home."
Other kosher carry-out estab-
lishments expect business to pick
up slightly after Sara's closes.
Rita Jerome, owner of Unique
Kosher Catering, said she is not
interested in taking over a
restaurant but may make some
changes to attract some of Sara's
clientele.
"We are doing a good job with
this. We like what we are doing
here," she said. "I don't see this
• becoming a restaurant.
"The question we are asking
ourselves now is: Would these
people who go there to eat come
and eat here? I don't know," she
said.
Leo Mertz was less optimistic
that his business would increase.
A dairy carry-out food service that
features tables for eating but no
\ table service, his eatery, New
• York Pizza World, has no plans
for expanding. He anticipates
only a marginal increase in traf-
fic.
"I wouldn't know, but I assume
we'll see a little more," he said.
Being a dairy eatery "may have
an effect on how much more we
see."
Meanwhile, Mr. Goodman re-
• cently suffered another setback.
'Downed power lines from last
week's storms not only caused the
restaurant to be closed Friday,
but the loss of some perishable
goods, as well.
Mr. Goodman plans to sell as
much of his stock as possible be-
fore July 31. The remainder will
be sold to his brother's chain of
restaurants, Lou's Deli, where
`)Mr. Goodman will be employed.
• "It is sad," he said. "A town like
this should have a kosher restau-
rant." El
