Culinary no-no #258

Culinary no-no's



It’s New Year’s Day. Here are, in no particular order, my culinary resolutions for 2012:

In restaurant booths, could we please not put our feet up on the seats.

When you’ve finished dining and paid the bill, could you please get up and get the hell out so someone else who’s been waiting can have a seat.

People sitting at barstools, when there’s one empty spot and two people standing, how about getting up and moving one spot down so the others can sit as well.

When wait staff does something good or nice, can we at least make eye contact and say “Thank you?”

Tip properly, at least 15-20%, more for exemplary service. That includes bar service.

Don’t make a visit to a restaurant a track meet for your server. If someone else at your table orders a drink, put in your drink order at the same time.
If you have a restaurant reservation and you’re going to be late, call and inform the restaurant.

Call if you’re not going to show for a restaurant reservation.

Fast food patrons, know what you’re going to order before you get to the front of the line.

Fast food drive thru workers, would it kill you to put a few napkins in the bag.

Fast food workers, don’t ask me if I want to try a triple-whipped fruit smoothie. If I want a triple-whipped fruit smoothie, I’ll order it.

Fast food joints, stop trying to go healthy!

At a nice restaurant, I should never have to beg for a glass of water.

Don’t walk into a popular restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night without a reservation and develop an attitude when informed you’ll have to wait.

I’m not sure what happens in the women’s restrooms, but guys, c’mon, you’ve got to wash your hands.

Guys, dress up when dining out. Do you have any idea how ridiculous you look in your t-shirt and jeans when your date is all gussied up?



They're the most obnoxious chefs...of the year!

I'm not so sure about some of these.
