Big Friday filling up around 6PM and receiving much of the “love from the other mother side” with guests loving what we do while they waited for their reserved tables to be ready. Awesome to feel that buzz in the air and momentum, hopefully it’s our guests’ excitement for our fantastic beer program specifically and the spring season generally and not just because they are amped up to drink green beer tomorrow.
True Champions: We have been blessed with awesome staff. Tonight we had the golden triangle of Dave greeting, Momo on cashier and Frankie bussing. When large parties entered the line, Dave was able to call for Franky using eye contact, or more often, Franky would have already rotated over to help because he was already using his eyes to look out for his teammates on the floor. The guys were too together as a unit to separate out an individual: F, D, and D are today’s three headed True Champion.
SG’s: Regulars from the East Coast Grill in Boston. Guest with her nephew who had previously dined at 5 Rabanitos. Miguel (RIP), Gustavo and Maria.
