Indicative of the service at Boodles,
even with a crowded room and several
stations to attend, was the waiter on one
of our visits ... Anthony Shultz ... for
seven years a sort of "Tony Everything"
... bus person, prep cook, waiter, etc. ...
His congenial, efficient and caring ways
were highly appreciated ... as was the
second coffee brought by him in a fresh
Boodles has long stopped being a
secret ... out there hiding in Madison
Heights ... It's menu tells you that "the
best deal" is an 8-ounce Black Angus
New York steak sandwich served on
toasted French bread with hand-cut
fries, thin, crispy fried onions and a red
wine demi-glace ... And at $13.95 it
truly is quite a bargain.
But an even better all-around good
deal might be more apparent ... Boodles
THE MESS AT Orchard Mall on
Orchard Lake Road and 15 Mile in
West Bloomfield undergoing an outer
renovation of the stores may look like
an atomic aftermath, but until it is fin-
ished, there still might be a bright spot
for many people dining out.
One of the restaurants at next door's
Sugar Tree, Angelo's Bistro, where the
former Paparazzi was located, is com-
pensating people for driving through
the remodeling maze that has carried
over onto Sugar Tree, by starting a daily
Construction Special Monday-Friday,
Nine favorite dinner items have been
taken from the menu ... with six priced
at $8.95 (chicken piccata, chicken stir-
fry, chicken "Big Mama", rigatoni di
polo, fettuccine Alfredo, lamb Regana-

fish, two lamb chops, veal parmigiana).
All include peas and rice and rice

Angelo's Bistro is well worth the slight
MAIL DEPT ... "I happened to drive
by Orleans Grill on a recent Saturday
night and the lot was empty. Has that
death-trap location on Orchard Lake
Road claimed another victim?" ...
Norman Miller, Farmington Hills.
(Yes, Norm, seems that Bruce
Cameron's Meating Place was the only
one to make it there ... The others,
Treats, Buster's Bay and Jake's on the
Lake, were open longer than Orleans
Grill but also short-lived.)

FORMER LOCALITE Bud
Gottesman, and wife, Elaine, daughter
of Jimmy and Sally Katz, owners of the
former Katz's Delicatessen in Oak Park,
have been living in Jupiter, Fla., more
than 20 years ... with Bud recently hav-
ing his first book, The Reluctant Sailor,
The book humorously recounts his
experiences as a sailor during World
War II ... and he has wasted no time
starting on book number two ... Bud
says it will probably be called Zack's
Promise ... "I have a wonderful grandson
named Zack who promised to protect
my violin. It was my great-grandfather's
fiddle and given as a wedding gift to my
grandparents. As far as we know, it is
not a Stradivarius as once thought, but
still a beautiful instrument with amaz-
ing sound. The violin is one of extreme-
ly few possessions that escaped Russia
with my grandparents.
"My second book will trace my family
through its generations and detail life in
Russia, the flight to America, farm years
in the Catskills, Detroit, Arizona and
now Florida. I loved the stories my par-
ents and grandparents told me as they
are very interesting as well as historical."
