Fuck yes!!! good food made for the community. can't wait for the opening. i volunteer to moon that Lewis aberration after I have some real Q.
Big shoes to fill in that hallowed location, but this is a good start.
Walked past it the other day and had many good memories, glad it's reopening.
Also included in the special: a wheelbarrow for carting your liberty buddy back to the ship.
Great bar, fantastic food, bringing back East Bay Street one customer at a time...
It's no wonder there are staffing issues in Charleston. Owners want to work you like slaves and pay $9.00/hr. Charleston has the WORST pay I've ever seen and to top it all off...look at how many restaurants have been fined for labor violations.
And by that, I mean they already charge enough to do that. This is definitely an exciting article though. Less of these crappy restaurants that pay for reviews, the better.
And by that, I mean they already charge enough to do that
^^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
When is Oriental Garden re-opening is my question!?!?
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?
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.
Bummer. Can I feel nostalgic for something that I saw birthed even if it isn't that old? Who am I kidding? I still miss Sharkey's!
