Taste at the Seattle Art Museum is one of Seattle’s hidden
treasures. Open for Sunday brunch, weekly lunch, happy hour and dinner, they
feature almost exclusively local foods, highlight neighboring breweries and
wineries, and have a mean cocktail/spirit program to boot!
They were crazy enough to bring me on board as extra help
during the Gauguin exhibit that runs through April 29th
, 2012. Please consider coming down to see this
amazing show: http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/
I have missed the front lines and to be surrounded by
patient guests and a humble team feels amazing.
My training is drawing to an end and while I feel comfortable on the
floor, it is clear that I have been out of practice and my rusty joints needed
a little movement.
The workings of a restaurant are no different than a big
Broadway play. There are countless
things happening before the doors ever open.
When they do, you have the team behind the curtain, the actors on stage,
the musicians, etc. Seen, hidden, they are
all crucial components to the bigger picture.
It is pretty magical to see it work well.
Come in, request my section or heckle me from a far. It is always great to see familiar faces when
I am getting my ass handed to me on a platter.
