Re: “The search for solutions to the restaurant staffing crisis continues

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.

Re: “The search for solutions to the restaurant staffing crisis continues

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.

Re: “The search for solutions to the restaurant staffing crisis continues

Given the pay offered, weak transit system and high rents, Charleston won'the ever have the workers it needs. How does keep pay low help this. It costs 20 dollars a day to park downtown. Rent for a one room apartment is 1500 a month. No trained businessperson would accept those numbers.

Re: “The search for solutions to the restaurant staffing crisis continues

I started in this business when I was 12 and went to culinary school at 18 and owned my own restaurant in Charleston by the time I was 23. I sold it in 2010 seeing what was coming and it was the best decision I've made.. I now drive a truck for a major purveyor in town and still have contacts in town and the talent pool is atrocious, you have major names in the chef business coming here but not the line cooks to back them up... why? Most cooks can go anywhere else and make 20-30% more. Start paying staff the money they are worth and they will come running.

I always believed that America had more migration periods as this great article was released to the public. If sea faring people can find Hawaii, Easter Island, New Zealand, etc, How could paleo migrants not bump into a entire , big as hell continent???? . Just my thoughts, DC Happy Turkey day

There's a staffing problem. Wild Wings just closed so there are some unemployed restaurant people right there.

Great. Another restaurant on the Market shuts down to make way for a hotel. Does anyone remember the Gourmaticery? That was where the French Quarter Inn is now.

Re: “McCrady's Tavern has plenty of hits and some unique B-sides too

Had lunch at the Tavern last Saturday and enjoyed the food very much. The only caveat was when I asked for a merlot, was told they did not have one by the glass, so I changed to a Malbec and was served a Malbec/merlot blend . . . what the ??? But most disturbing was the fact that the wine was ice cold, colder than the water we were served and I was told when I mentioned it, that it was the proper temp for red wines . . . . ?? really. S.
