Anatomy of a S#*t Show

Anatomy of a S#*t Show

July 20, 2021

In a climate of restaurants being short staffed, mix in a set of uncommon circumstances, we identify the anatomy of a s#*t show. Sometimes things go sideways on a shift making it a “Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”. Maybe it happens often at some places. Still hot after the worst brunch ever, we invite Omar back to the show to discuss ways in which we can survive a S#*t Show. Excuse the language but things get hot.

Mispronunciations

Mispronunciations

June 29, 2021

Mispronunciations are very pervasive in the restaurant. Many names of ingredients have foreign language origins which raises the bar further when it comes to knowing how things are pronounces. How so we handle ordering that menu item when a name is botched? We handle it by not handling it. However we can certainly have fun with it. We have all had the challenge but it is not that serious.

Help Wanted Pt. 2: A continuation of last week’s restaurant podcast. Jason Raymond of Seed Kitchen, Stem Wine Bar and Drift Oyster Bar in Atlanta has a bone to pick with us right at the top of the show. We do not see eye to eye on going to restaurants on busy holidays and we have “healthy conflict” on the topic. Fresh from the trauma of Mother’s day and the anticipation of Father’s Day which are the final markers of the big restaurant days till later in the year. How do you make a busy night positive and memorable? Jason recommends communication and staying within you scope of your capabilities. I say easier said than done…

Help Wanted

Help Wanted. While the majority of owners sweep the lack of employees under the rug of unemployment benefits and stimulus checks, we know it is not that simple. Specifically restaurant employees struggle with finding what is best for them. We lift the rug of lazy oversimplification and start the conversation attempting to answer why is there a dearth of applicants for restaurant job openings. Joining us in this week’s restaurant podcast is Jason Raymond of Seed Kitchen, Stem Wine Bar and Drift Oyster Bar in Atlanta. Jason gives us his management perspective on the subject and we all are curious to see what is next.
