    I was wondering if it was mislabeled, based on the interior. If you ate there, I will take your word for it (I never did).

    I learned how to peel shrimp at the silver fox. Back in the early 60’s.

    The original name for this resturant was Milano’s and it was owned by Mr. Dick Muti who was also to become the mayor.

    When the Community Lunch, run by the Milano/Muti family closed on Main Street, they opened more upscale Milano’s. This Later became the Silver Fox sometime in the sixties. It featured live entertainment in the form of a one man band named “Wild Bill.” Also country singers Shorty Warren and Dottie West appeared there. It then became the Seven Seas, featuring the best seafood around. Brian Lloyd and several partners turned it into the Spruce Street Grill for several years before it became an Asian Restaurant for a brief time. Its latest incarnation is Varka.

    I remember the Silver Fox very well, spent many a Friday and or Saturday night there in the mid sixties while Wild Bill Moses was playing. As soon as I’d walk in, usually in my Navy uniform, he would break into “Anchors Aweigh” After Billleft for Arizona my then fiance (now wife) and a girlfriend of hers sang one late night with Smokey Warren and the Mountain Dew Boys. They asked guitar player Jerry Hatton if he could play lower, so he sat on the floor!!

    My in laws, the Papenhausens from Upper Saddle River, NJ owned the Silver Fox and it became the Seven Seas after they sold it in the sixties. Boy, what memories.

    My grandparents, the Papenhausens, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at my uncle’s restaurant, The Silver Fox. Nice memory
