Casey Thompson, are you sure you have your facts straight? She lives in Napa Valley but is executive chef at The Inn of Ranch Santa Fe in San Diego.????
That sucks. I remember when that place was LaLa Lucci's or however it was spelled.
A burger with fries for $8 while still ridiculous is well below the downtown market rate.
Ultimately it comes down to this: why aren't Charlestonians making un-fancy, reasonably-priced pub food a good business choice for restaurateurs? Volume begets deals.
gourmet prices I'm sure. So long cheap liquor drinks
nice look, nice menu, but that makes it not the Blind Tiger
"gourmet bar" - check the link and read the menu. it's as "gourmet" as Juanita's and Andolinis.
Equality = Equal Opportunity not equal results. You have to earn it. And YES gender bias is discrimination!
It's not discrimination. It's support and education.
Do we really need more discrimination ? How about a FAB conference for everyone. We don't need a Black Job Fair or a Female FAB conference.
The parking issue that WJH mentioned is nothing to scoff at. As a musician, I get to talk to the FOH and BOH staff after closing and the financial burden of parking costs, citations for expired meters, and the like cuts into wages very significantly. For workers that arrive at 4pm when the city is still full of day staff and leave at 10:30 all the way out to 3:00am, there isn't even a public option. The city absolutely must recognize that if it is going to balance the economy on server's trays, it needs to take some of the burden off their backs.
So many young ones heading off to NYC and larger cities (just had a few over for Thanksgiving in our NY place - great excuse for me to make cornbread and pork sausage stuffing), where they can make good money and have a chance to spread their wings and possibly advance. Restaurant owners here need to learn the old pay more - get more - stay longer - cheaper in the long run rule. A few of the better places know this and seem to have great success because their people stay. All those F & B kids in NYC like it here, many grew up here, but just can not afford to live here and have any kind of life. I really have to give props to One80 and Turning Leaf, both great programs and also to Mickey and Scott for stepping up. If they ran background checks when I started, 90 percent of the BOH would of been out of a job, myself included.
