No Rocky Road
For Two Fine Restaurants

DANNY RASKIN LOCAL COLUMNIST

T

he guy asked him how
much weight he had lost ...
Chef Chuck "Rocky' Rach-
witz smiled graciously and
replied, "about 50 pounds."
But it wasn't until the guy was
walking out that he realized the
big difference in Rocky's looks
wasn't only his loss of weight.
A picture of the former C.A.
Muer corporate chef on a promo-
tion piece for his restaurant
showed Rocky wearing a goatee
and mustache ... They're both
gone now.
Neither the loss of weight or
facial foliage have taken away
from Rocky's fine cooking and
presentation abilities.
He is the chef/owner at Rocky's
of Brighton, where on this Sat-
urday night it would serve over
450 dinners from a much small-
er kitchen than the one at his
hocicy's of Northville.
In Brighton, the cooks work on
a line 12 feet long ... In
Northville, it is 36 feet long.
It opened May 3, after Rocky
had purchased The Roadhouse
at Oak Pointe, located at the Oak
Pointe Golf Course on Brighton
Road five months earlier (Jan. 1)
... and a full-scale top-to-bottom
remodeling program was begun.
Seating is for 100 in the main
dining room, 60 on a porch, 50 up-
stairs and 60 in the bar lounge
area.
The building is a classic coun-
try-style home with many win-
dows, fireplace, patio for outdoor
dining and quaint little nooks
that separate the dining sectors.
Its decor is similar to his
Rocky's of Northville, with earth-
tone colors, wildlife prints of elks,
wolves, birds and hand-carved
duck decoys.
White linen tablecloths and
burgundy linen napkins set off
the menu that includes many fa-
vorites ... Specialties like Rocky's
signature dish, potato encrusted
whitefish, salmon en papillote
(baked in parchment paper), and
roasted 1/2 duck with wild cher-
ries and natural sauce.
The seven or more fresh fish
items are heavy sellers at Rocky's
of Brighton ...from broiled white-
fish to rainbow trout to pickerel
to grilled Atlantic salmon ...
There are always at least 11
seafood and meat entrees ...
Grilled skinless chicken breast,
braised lamb shank, Gulf shrimp
casino, Maryland lump crab-
cakes, broiled lamb chops, bar-b-
q ribs, etc ... Also six pastas.
For the less hungry or diet
watchers, Rocky's of Brighton has

five salads and Angus burgers (5-
or 8-ounce). •
Of course there is the fish and
conch chowder full of chunky veg-
etables and tomato sauce, and a
crock of baked French onion soup
topped with gruyere and moz-
zarella cheese.
Rocky's of Brighton is open
seven days a week ... Lunch is
Monday through Saturday, 11:30
to 4; dinner Monday through
Thursday, 4 to 10; Friday and
Saturday to 11; Sundays, 1 to 9.
Just about everything is home-
made ... breads, sauces, desserts,
etc.
Rocky Rachwitz is blessed with
excellent help ... and you know
what a plus this is in the restau-
rant game ... His general man-
ager in Brighton, Jim Murray,
spent the last two years manag-

Karmanos Institute...Number
one is the big annual dinner ...
So exciting to see the dedication
of these youthful folks toward the
furtherance of health care and
education.
Some 460 attended its recent
Partners Ball at the Athenum
Hotel ... and over 250 at the
group's golf outing three days ear-
lier ... More than $300,000 was
raised by the two affairs, topping
the $250,000 in its first efforts
last year.
Stan Krandall, chairman of the
Partners executive committee,
couldn't have been happier with
the turnout as he welcomed folks
to the event that recognized the
late Geraldine Rissman, Jean
and Sam Frankel, Pat and Jan
Hartmann and Miriam and Dr.
Jeffrey Forman ... Stan's wife,

Chef Rocky Rachwitz

ing all four restaurants at the
Culinary Institute of America in
Hyde Park ... to go with his six
months of training at the
Northville location.
Rocky divides time equally be-
tween his two operations and is
one of the major reasons for his
two successful restaurants ...
Rocky's thorough know-how is
a wonderful asset ... and his em-
ployees appreciate it.
But not more than his cus-
tomers.
THE NEWLY named Bar-
bara Ann Karmanos Cancer In-
stitute (formerly Michigan
Cancer Foundation) has a lot to
look forward to in excellent re-
search for a prevention and cure
of the dreaded disease.
It was shown by the Partners
Group ... young guys and gals
who, in just two years, have
vaulted their annual golf and
black-tie dinner dance into the
second largest fund-raiser by

Connie, was mighty proud of her
husband.
So many people with such
pride in tomorrow's leaders ...
Norma and Dr. Donald Gold-
en looking great; their son
Richard Golden and wife Shelly,
Dave and Beverly Winston, John
Bloom, Vicki Churchill-Fingeroot,
last year's overall co-chairperson;
Marie and Mary Kramer, Stan
Bershad, Eunice and Milton
Ring, Flora Schwartz, Seymour
and Dolores Brode, Harry and
Ann Korman, Helen Zuckerman
also reminding folks about the
MCF black-tie Angels Ball bene-
fit for the Karmanos Cancer In-
stitute, Oct. 14, at the
Ritz-Carlton, Dearborn... So
many more having such a good
time for so great a cause.
TOGETHER AGAIN could
be the theme for Shecky Greene's
appearance at Arriva Italia, East
12 Mile between Mound and Van
Dyke ... Oct. 24-28.
