modern new setting.
One of those little touches that seemed
to set Trio apart was a wine tasting
alcove, adjacent to the entrance of the
Brown Bear ... Twin racks, bulging with
bottles of fine wines, surrounded a tast-
ing booth offering samples of a spectrum
of bouquets ... Folks were encouraged to
try a variety of vintages and select the
one mostappealing to the palate.
No detail was overlooked ... The expe-
rience of the Meyersons, the basic train-
ing and principles instilled by their father
and mother, Buddy and Mary Meyerson,
the careful planning and consultations
and the insistence of quality ... all went
into the creation of Trio at Franklin.
Trio revealed an integrated complex of
dining facilities, offering a wide variety
of food and atmosphere ... Set at differ-
ent levels which could be viewed from
the massive lobby, the three rooms each
presented something different for varied
The circular drive isn't there anymore
... But the 400-car parking lot still wraps
around the modern designed glass-front
structure that, following the Trio, was
known as the FTD Building.
The Trio at Franklin is fondly remem-
bered by many ... and now as the new
home of the Jewish News ... it rekindles
memories that will never die.
MAIL DEPT ... From George H.
Duchin, of Coconut Creek, Florida ...
"It was of great interest to read about
restaurants in the 1930s and 1940s.
"My father, Bert Duschinsky, along
with my mother, opened the first and
original Hungarian Village in 1932 at
8140 W. Jefferson in the Delray section
of Detroit. The previous owner ran it as
a beer garden. Prohibition was out. It
was now more of a nightclub.
"The dance floors were crowded to
the Gypsy music of Ziggy Bela. There
were other Gypsy band leaders that pre-
ceded him like Broncos and Kerakas
who were well known in the small
downriver Hungarian community.
"The great cuisine like chicken
paprikas, stuffed cabbage and seven-layer
cakes (dobos torte) were cooked and
baked with unforgettable flavor.
Businessmen's lunches, known as blue-
plate specials, were 35 cents and includ-
ed soup, entree, coffee and dessert."
NEXT FRIDAY, Feb. 14, will be
Valentine's Day ... and Vineyards on
Northwestern in Farmington Hills is cel-
ebrating it by having Elvis impersonator
Max Pelicano, now appearing at Casino
Windsor ... and opening at Andiamo
Italia in March.
Beginning at 1 p.m., he'll sing Elvis
Presley hits ... and a long-stemmed
Maggie's chocolate-covered strawberry
