Of course, people will still need to eat, they will not always want to cook for themselves, and the restaurant will survive. But in what form?
"There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
"The last several contracts have featured lump sum bonuses most years, leaving wage rates stagnant for most classifications. Drapeaux-Stewart said he’s only gotten a 77-cent increase over the last 12 years."
The thing I miss most about the before times is the feeling of being "taken care of" by restaurant staff. I was welcomed and wanted from the minute I walked in until after I paid my check. My meal was as much about ambience as superb food, and the staff treated me like a guest in their home. Lately I feel like a bother. Choices are limited, and no one wants to answer questions about the menu. I have to ask for condiments two and three times before they're grudgingly dropped off without a word. There's always a wait, even with a reservation, and no one is sorry about any mistakes. Do you think the old style of being pampered when dining out will ever come back?
