Palate
pleasers
ANGELO'S LUNCH (1100 Catherine)
- For the best carbohydrate fix in
town, experience Angelo's raisin toast.
Homemade during the after-lunch
hours that Angelo's is closed, the
massive slabs of bread and really good
coffee are worth the walk to the hospital
complex. If bread isn't your idea of a
meal, the breakfast and lunch specials,
featuring omlettes and hamburger
plates, are good, but somewhat high
priced. Go to Angelo's early on a rainy
morning before an exam and console
yourself.
THE BAGEL FACTORY (1306 S.
University) - The home of Ann Arbor's
finest bagels, this shop also bakes some
of the strangest flavored ones in town.
Try oatmeal or pumpernickel, or the
renowned Fragel, a raisin bagel topped
with cinnamon and sugar. They make
great Sunday morning snacks. In ad-
dition to bagels, the restaurant also
boasts a lunch counter and serves san-
dwiches. Reasonable prices.
BICYCLE JIM'S (1301 S. University)
- a popular place to escape dorm food
for Sunday dinner. Bicycle Jim's has a
wide variety of appetizers, sandwiches
(including vegetarian), burgers, and a
special Mexican buffet. If you still have
room for more after that, they have a
whole showcase of homemade cakes,
pies, and tortes.
BROWN JUG (1204 S. University) -
This is where all the dorm types go for
Sunday dinner and study snacks, and
where the alumni hang out on football
Saturdays. It's usually packed, so don't
drop by for a quick meal. The Jug is
known for its pizza - both the deep dish
and regular kind - but also serves a
variety of burgers and sandwiches.
When you want to eat out close to home
without spending a lot of money try the
Jug.
SEVA (314 E. Liberty) - With
classical music, flourishing greenery,
and liquor license, Seva is an oasis
among its fast-food neighbors. Try just
about anything - homemade soups,
enormour salads, omlettes, san-
dwiches, or some of the hot specials
such as stir-fry veggies and tofu, or
Mexican dishes. All are filling, fresh,
and delicious. Also, ask one of the artsy-
looking waitresses for a loaf of the
banana-nut bread, and linger over your
meal.
THE COUNT OF ANTIPASTO (1140
S. University) - The Count is con-
veniently located above one of Ann Ar-
bor's more popular campus bars, Good
Time Charley's. As the name may have
suggested the restaurant features
Italian food. The Count is best known
for its fast food pizza, sold by the slice,
and salad bar. It is a great place to go
with the gang from the dorm for dinner
on Sunday, or to just hang out and
gossip with a few close friends. Prices
are average.

something less traditional, it also
serves Japanese sushi and eggrolls.
PIZZA BOB'S (814 S. State, 618 Church)
- Pizza Bob's is great for the late night
feast - delivered to your room or as a
quick stop on the way home from the
library. Chipatis, a pita bread sandwich
stuffed with lettuce, mushrooms,
cheese, onions, and spicy sauce have
become as popular among many
college women as designer jeans. From
the subs to the super-thin pizza,
everything at Pizza Bob's starts out
from the same dough so after several
visits many items begin to taste the
same.
THANO'S LAMPLIGHTER. (412 E.
Liberty) - Some say Thano's has the
best pizza in town. Their deep dish is an
experience that should be required for
graduation. Greek, Italian, and
American entrees are also available,
but go for the pizza. Moderately priced.

PIZZERIA UNO'S (1321 S. Univer-
sity) - If you are homesick for Chicago
style food, Uno's is the closest sub-
stitute, but Chicagoans are not the only
ones who will enjoy this haunt of deep
dish pizza lovers. Rated by many as
Ann Arbor's best pizza, the Chicago
style deep dish istdelicious, filling, and
reasonably priced. The large size is
enough to feed three, but in a contest
last year Uno's gave them out free to
anyone who ate one alone. Rumor has it
that even some of Bo's boys lost out on
this gourmandish challenge. The
Chicago cheese cake, although it's
really made in Detroit, is excellent too.
THE PRETZEL BELL (120 E. Liber-
ty) - The P-Bell used to be the top beer
chugging place on campus; today its
one of the classier restaurants in town.
If you believe in the wholesomeness of
fresh vegetables or have exotic tastes
in jello, the Pretzel Bell is your
restaurant. It may have the best salad

The Michigan Daily - Thur
bar in Ann Arbor. The P-Bell is a good
name to drop when your parents offer
to take you out to dinner.
RABBI GUIDO'S (211 S. State) -
One never knows what will come of a
meal at Rabbi Guido's, Ann Arbor's
newesttdeli. Inconsistancy seems the
rule here, where the mood of the san-
dwich maker, not the ingredients,
makes your meal. The Italian and
Jewish; specialties, such as lasagne,
noodle kugel,'and antipasto salads are
homemade and great remedy for
gastral homesickness. Guido's, though,
has made its name for unbelievable
desserts. The chocolate cheesecake and
real Italian cappicino make the
depressingly tack decor and sometimes
disappointing sandwiches worth it.
WHIFFLETREE (208 W. Huron) - A
good place to take the parents, par-
ticularly if they're picking up the tab.
The menu is split between traditional

Zingerman's Deli: Corned beef and chicken soup, an instant cure for homesick students.

COTTAGE INN (512 E. William)-One of
the better pizza places in town. You pay
for the quality though, as prices tend to
be a bit high. Italian dishes such as
lasagna, mostaccoli and spaghetti and
excellent hamburgers are also a
speciality. Speedy delivery, but search
for coupons to get free drinks.
DRAKE'S SANDWICH SHOP (709 N. Univer-
sity)-The prices are the only things
that have changed since Drake's San-
dwich Shop opened more than 50 years
ago. John and Mildred Tibbals still own
one of Ann Abor's best restaurants.
From the menu and hard wooden
booths to the shelves stacked to the
ceiling with candy, Drakes is much the
same as when it first opened. You still
have to write your own order to get one
of a harried waitress crew to make a
phenomenal peanut butter sandwich,
a glass of limeade or even a cup of
Jasmine flower tea. Best selection of
jelly beans in town.
FLEETWOOD DINER (200S. Ashley)-
of all the pseudo diners in Ann
Arbor, only the Fleetwood Diner is faithful to
the cracked coffe mugs and bacon-and-
egg specials that true greasy spoons
are made of. Hamburgers, fries and
all the usual diner fare dwells within
this tiny haven of good, cheap food.
Open just about all the time, Fleetwood
is a great place to excape collegeville
and hobnob with some real Arborites.
THE FULL MOON (207 S. Main)-For
unique atmosphere, make sure you stop
by The Full Moon. Along with a fairly
wide selection of imported beer, the bar
and restaurant serves an average
selection of burgers and sandwiches.
The nachos are good. But what it lacks
in food menu variety, it makes up in
captivating surroundings. The
restaurant's decor is reminiscent of
prohibition-era Chicago, complete with
streetlamps and an old fashioned bar.
THE GANDY DANCER (407 Depot)-
Considered by manty to be the place to take
mom and dad, the Gandy Dancer
draws much of its charm and

historical character from the old stone
railroad station it occupies and from
the Amtrack station next door. It
specializes in seafood but also offers
beef and salad dishes. Definitely one of
Ann Arbor's most interesting
restaurants, it is, however, also one of
its most expensive.
KRAZY JIM'S (551 S.
Division) -Strategically located near
South and West quads, Krazy Jim's has
made the golf-ball sized blimpy burger
an Ann Arbor legend. Hamburgers are
made to order, so be ready for lots of
decisions. There are 245,760 com-
binations of burgers, rolls, cheeses and
trimmings. They also offer deep-fried
mushrooms, zucchini, cauliflour,
onions, and potatoes.
MOVEABLE FEAST (326 W. Liber-
ty) - For exquisite French cuisine,
head for Moveable Feast. Although it
concentrates mainly on catering par-
ties, the restaurant is open for lunch,
and features items not found at most
lunch spots, including Chocolate
Mousse, and fruit kabob. The
restaurant is operated by the wives of
three University professors, who
received their culinary training from
some of the great chefs of Europe.
Prices are moderately expensive.
MAUDE'S (314 S. 4th Ave.) - It's
Sunday night, the dorm isn't serving
food, you have some extra bucks and
you want a good meal at one of the local
restaurants here in Ann Arbor. Fear
not, young freshman, there is Maude's,
a quaint little Victorian-style
restaurant waiting to delite your
palate. Maude's offers good salads and
moderate prices. Yes, it even has a bar,
but remember kids, you must be 21 to
dring in Michigan.
MILLER FARMS (1227 S. Univer-
sity) - A cookie and ice cream san-
dwich, topped with chocolate jimmies
or a double dip of chocolate-chocolate
chip Haagen-Daaz; at Miller's Ice
Cream you get the biggest scoop per
dollar. A single, which is two scoops of
your favorite flavor is only 80 cents

compared to a scrawny one scoop at
Baskin Robbins for 60 cents.
The next cone size, a betweener mat-
ches a double at other Ann Arbor
parlor's and a Miller's tripple won't
even fit on a cone. The service is quick
and friendly. A large menu and
remodeled dining room, filled with
hanging plants makes Millers a
pleasant place to have lunch or dinner.
Good hamburgers and excellent
homemade soup made fresh everyday.
THE OLD GERMAN (120 W.
Washington) - Old German is an apt
name for this restaurant, which not
only features authentic German style
food, but a rustic decor that creates the
atmosphere of an old German Inn. For
those not particularly fond of German
food, the restaurant offers a selection of
steaks and seafood. The Old German is
open for lunch through dinner except on
Thursdays, when it is closed. The
prices are very reasonable, and the
food very good.
PANTREE (330 E. Liberty)- Open
24 hours, Pantree is the spot for after-
,the-party attacks of the munchies. It
specializes in vegetarian and Mexican
dishes - their quiches and nachos are
among the best in town. Huge helpings
of most dishes, so bring a friend to help
eat.
PARTHENON GYROS (226S. Main)
-, For gyros sandwiches, this is
probably the best place to go, although
it's a long walk. Piped in Greek music,
huge racks of lamb broiling on
rotiseries, outstanding baklava, and
large servings make it worth the above
average prices.
PICO DELI (1106 S. University) -
The sandwiches at Pico Deli are a little
smaller than most deli sandwiches, but
that's only fitting because the Deli is a-
lot smaller than most. In fact, it's only
about eight feet wide and sort of resem-
bles a closet. It offers standard deli fare
such as turkey, ham and cheese, roast
beef, corned beef on rye, potato salad,
cole slaw, and dill pickles for a
reasonable price. Or, if you want

Thirst quenchers

THE BLIND PIG (208 S. First)-If
night wandering takes you away from
the campus area, down to the older sec-
tions of Ann Arbor, take a peek into the
Blind Pig. The worn, brick building
may seem deserted, but once you step
inside there are definite signs of life in
the laid-back style. Lush foliage, an all
glass porch, glass tables, and French
wine subtly remind one of a European
cafe. On Mondays, Fridays, and Satur-
days take a trip to the Pig's basement
where blues, jazz, and an occasional
rock band add to the cool nightclub at-
mosphere.
DOMINICK'S (812 Monroe) -
Dominick's is literally a breath of fresh
air in Ann Arbor's summer bar scene.
For relaxation, not much beats a
pleasant drink on Dominick's front por-
ch, looking out on to the gothic buildings
of the law quad. The atmosphere
doesn't come cheap, however;
Dominick's prices tend to be a bit high.
The regular crowd is a bit older than at
most bars, with a lot of law students
escaping long hours of study.
DOOLEY'S (310 Maynard) - One of,
the campus' most popular watering
holes, Dooley's manages to fill the
house with its weekday drink specials.
Mondays beer is only 10 cents a
cup-after a $3.00 cover that is. Wed-
nesday is ladies night and Tuesday is
Greek night. For entertainment the bar

pipes in popular music, and shows spor-
ting events on a big screen TV. Don't
plan on staying late, however; last call
comes shortly after 1:15 a.m. and the
glaring houselights come on around
1:35 a.m.
GOOD TIME CHARLEY'S BAR and
GRILL (1140 S. University) - The pin
nacle of preppy bar-life, Charley's is
the gateway to the fraternity and
soriority world. Greeks and other prep-
sters pack the bar almost every night.
It's a shame the place is usually so full
that breathing is difficult because
Charley's is one of the most attractive
bars in town. Crowds tend to obscure
the lovely glass mirrors, lush plants,
and round, brass railed bar that give
the nightspot character. The first thing
most people learn about Charley's is
that a lot of students stock their dorm
shelves with a complete collection of
fancy drink glasses from the bar.
JOE'S STAR LOUNGE (109 N.
Main)-A bar with "atmosphere," a
sense of history, and another miniscule
dance floor. Owner Joe Tiboni took the
old Star Lounge, changed the decor a
little, brought in some challenging out-
of-town bands, and created one of Ann
Arbor's most interesting music places.
CRUISIN' ANN ARBOR, last year's local
music compilation, was recorded at
Joe's; the four-night fest attracted

large crowds to the steamy casbah. In
general, decent cover and bar prices,
ambivalent acoustics, diversified clien-
tele. (grad students, East Quaddies,
town ies, an occasional adult, and a good
time),
MR. FLOOD'S PARTY (120 W. Liber-
ty, make up the odd couple of Ann Ar-
nightspots in town. Top local bands
don't seem to mind being shoved on to a
tiny stage in the front corner of the bar,
and dancers that don't fit on the floor
just spill out into the street and keep
dancing. The bar's exotic interior gives
it a different look than other campus
bars. Drinks are cheap. The clientele is
older than at the average college bar.
OLD TOWN (122 W. Liberty)-Old
Town is one .of the few great bars in
town to just go to and talk. If Old Town
and its boistrous neighbor, Flood's Par-
ty, make up the odd couple of Ann Ar-
bor's bars, Old Town is where Felix
Unger would go. It's neat and clean yet
not sterile, has cozy candlelit tables,
and plays soft jazz and classical tapes
on a nice sound system. Drinks are
moderately priced, and it serves pret-
zels and peanuts. For those who get
really hungry, they usually let clients
bring in burgers from the Fleetwood
Diner across the street.
