I Hate It When a Diner at My Restaurant…
likes better what the other person at the table got and tries to find something wrong with his dish or lies to the server about what he ordered. Just tell me you prefer what the other person ordered; I’ll get it out to you as soon as I can.

What Diners Don’t Know but Should…
Although a reluctant hostess told you the kitchen would be open for a few more minutes, it can take up to one hour to close down a restaurant kitchen.

I Never Cook with…
peanut oil. Although it can make anything crisp up, there are too many allergies associated with it.

Favorite Fish…
Halibut. There is no better taste.

Least Favorite Fish…
Bluefish. Way too oily.

Favorite Pain Reliever…
Advil, chased with a glass of wine.
