ULC Logbook, Saturday, October 9th, 2021:
At lunch, we started with approx. 70, welcomed several parties of walk-in’s, and finished with 86, with two orders for takeout. One order was for BA Berri N.; we were joined at lunch by BA Nicholas N. (party of 4, tbl. 78); and BA Jane D. (party of 4, started at table 62, moved inside to table 12 due to very light, quickly passing, precipitation.)
At dinner, we started with approx. 240: there were many changes of party size, and we did our best to equalize for several cancellations with a handful of walk-in parties. We finished at 216 covers.
For BA’s, we were joined by John K. (party of 2, tbl. 20); Judith R. (party of 3, tbl. 62); Judy H. / Mr. S. (party of 2, tbl. 122); Carl P. (party of 3, tbl. 14); William F. (party of 2, tbl. 4); and S. W. / Yale President P. S. (party of 9, tbl. 65).
We were also joined by several Yalies and their parents.
Robert e D. M. Jr. joined us for lunch, his first time back with us since the pandemic: Mr. M. said his bavette entree was perfect, he is so happy we are open for lunches on the weekends, and he sends his greetings and love to JM and Chef JP.
Many parents, on their way out, expressed their desire to join us again soon!
At lunch, J. was 10 minutes late; P. (support) was 15 minutes late; N. was 20 minutes late.
The weather held throughout service (again approx. 6% chance of a passing shower had been forecast) which facilitated a full first seating of the patio, and a slightly lesser second seating as it started to get chilly outside.
