Tips for Restaurant Staff

Consider this an appropriate addendum to my last post. It's a list from the N.Y. Times' You're the Boss blog.

Here are a few samples from Part 2 of the list of "100 Things Restaurant Staffers Should Never Do":

  • Do not bring judgment with the ketchup. Or mustard. Or hot sauce. Or whatever condiment is requested.
  • Specials, spoken and printed, should always have prices.
  • Do not ask if someone is finished when others are still eating that course.
  • Do not ask, "Are you still working on that?" Dining is not work -- until questions like this are asked.
  • Do not ask if a guest needs change. Just bring the change.
