(From www.ajc.com) I started thinking about the ten things I’d like restaurateurs to know. Here’s my list: 1. The bathroom is part of your restaurant. Pay someone to keep it clean. Always. 2. Servers should know how to pronounce everything on your menu. “Gestapo” for “gazpacho” doesn’t cut it. 3. Servers should know what everything on your menu tastes like. The worst answer to the question, “how’s the coconut milk soup?’ is “I don’t know, I’ve never tasted it.” 4. Never think that #2 and #3, above, don’t happen. They do. They have. 5. Terms like “vine-ripened” and “organic” are only worth using if your ingredients actually are. 6. “Made-from-scratch” does not mean the same thing as opening a box and adding eggs and water. 7. The customer is always right. Really. 8. There is no place for smoking in a restaurant, including you, smoking at the back door on your break. 9. Sure, Anthony Bourdain is cool. You are not Anthony Bourdain, no matter how cool you think you are. Be yourself. 10. “Award winning” means that you have actually won an award. It’s not a catch phrase. So, what would your list include?
