28 January 2016 - 08:17 AMAnother example. Aspen restaurant on Hall rd. advertises "lake perch special" on Mondays for 9.99. The chef there told me it was "zander perch". Translation--perch size zander. No such fish as zander perch. They do however have "yellow bellied lake perch" on the regular menu for 17.99. One might look at the menu and surmise that mondays perch is truely a special of real lake perch. Very deceptive and fraudulent.
If anyone has gone to a Ram's Horn restaurant they used to list walleye on the menu. It was zander. Got reported. Last I heard their menu now says "zander (or maybe European pike perch can't remember) cousin of the great lake walleye. They had to change the menu franchise wide a few years back.
27 January 2016 - 01:21 PMComplaints are taken on a case by case basis. They can abide by the health dept. order but then weeks later change back because health dept. doesn't do follow ups unless notified. A hefty fine or other punishment is what is needed.
That's BS, the lake perch special was just on their sign yesterday! Obviously the health dept doesn't care!
Many would argue that they are serving perch because they are serving European pike-perch (aka zander) and perch is in the name. Although a totally different from perch. Even if serving "white perch", its not a perch but a memmber of the bass family. Only similarities is perch is in the name. All in the name of profits.

27 January 2016 - 08:36 AMAnd what gets me is that it is illegal. I have reported no less than 10 places and all had to change their menu to reflect what they are serving. Its called fraud.Im a chef and 95 percent of places in metro detroit sell zander as perch..fact
Culvers does sell walleye mostly during lent. Very moderate price too.
