It’s all about how you recover, and tonight was a testament to how strongly our staff recovered coming off a more challenging evening last night. Whereas Tuesday was all about learning and problem solving, Wednesday was reassuringly smooth and still a big night.
SG’s: John McDaniel, wine director of Accanto. Mark Lindsay, sales rep for Jose Pastor Wine Selections. Mike Kriessel, our Cream Spirits and Wine rep, dining with South American wine importer / exporter. Saul and Brenda. Marchelo D, somm at Swift and Sons. Carlos Saba, owner of Marca Negra Mezcal. Stacey Dixon and friends.
Mood Scale: Felipe had two different tables ask him to describe their dishes in Spanish: table 76 party of 3 on the first turn and Carlos Saba of Marca Negra at the bar on the second turn. Being bilingual as well as having a large and creative vocabulary were 2 skills that moved the needle on our guests mood scale.
Shout out: Lynnea (and the entire team) delivered a top notch Lena experience for Phil Vettel and his friends on Tuesday night – so much so that Phil personally thanked her and said she did an awesome job. That was visit number 3!
MVP: Jeff for his great class on “back pocket recommendation” mezcals – they were all very interesting to learn about and looking forward to having fun talking about some of these with guests.
Tom Skilling says… storms likely as steamy air mass approaches.
