^^They already do that. High prices, small portions. Case in point, any of Reitz's restaurants...
It's time to go to the tip-free model. Restaurant owners should charge enough to pay a living wage to all staffers instead of forcing guests to cough up a 20% add-on to support the geisha/gigolo system of table service.
Wow, that sounds fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shouldnt' that be Iman Oldman?
gonna be real competitive in that neighborhood with $15 lunch salads and a $21 burger, hope you're on an expense account
Yes I know it is the antithesis of a craft beer, Lew, but as for your line," but if the beer's not good, the brewery won't survive", how do you explain the raging popularity among hipsters of PBR? This isn't about quality at all, it's about fads and trends. Sure, real beer aficionados will understand the distinctions, but they make up a small piece of the market.
For those of us who live far away, would you consider sharing your recipe for the heirloom tomato and peach salad?
No, actually, that's not at all what I'm saying. Some of it's about exclusivity, but if the beer's not good, the brewery won't survive. Slagging off on hipsters doesn't help, either...and it's pretty three years ago.
I've been going to D'Allesandro's since 2006. It's not as good as it used to be. I believe the ownership has changed. It's still the same wood fire oven. Much is the same. But it's not quite as good as it used to be. But don't get me wrong. It's still probably my favorite.
When is Oriental Garden re-opening is my question!?!?
This Bryson fella couldn't be any more right. The "craft" thing is a marketing tool used to lure in stupid hipsters. They don't care if the beer tastes good, as long as it is made by castrated monks singing a Ray Charles/Adele medley in a small pot that has been used since it was discovered at Goodwill. The "craft" moniker is to give the product the "exclusivity" that the hipster craves.
I mean, just ask Scott Shor. He makes a killing doing this at Charleston's biggest d-bag magnet.
i agree with follymusic...JI pizza...love andolinis but gotta pick one.
What sort of list is this without EVO? Savages.
I don't get why servers get cash and BOH gets booze. They need to buy groceries and gas, not drive home drunk! I totally agree that the house should not make money on this deal. This sounds like a move to assuage the guilt of the owners while allowing them to profit. Nice try, but how about paying your workers a living wage instead?
What's really missing on the list is EVO
Pizzeria di Giovanni in the Rainbow Market. Beats Gilroy's by a mile.
Food wasn't that good there.
Small businesses are not being crushed by regulation, they are being crushed by their own inability for whatever reason for not providing a product that enough people are willing to pay for to maintain profitability.
I find it funny when free business advocates blame the government for their own failure. Successful business is simple - understand your costs and liabilities going in, then find a product or service to sell that people want badly enough to pay your price. If you aren't selling enough to cover expenses, than you were wrong. Simple as that.
ncspartan - Roget's Thesaurus: kitchen love = fair pay from management
It seems the question might have been asked if the landlord refused to renew or if the tenant refused a rent hike. If a rent hike had been proposed (after all this is a business with 13 successful years, rent hikes usually come more frequently than that) and tenant refused, the story is entirely different than presented. But oh yeah, paragraph 4 - another attempt at Chris Haire smartassery - way to keep the spirit alive Kinsey.
