When Ed and I want to eat a meal, and celebrate an event, or something that has been finished, we go to the little restaurant. Ed says that I call it little, but really it is bigger than I think. I looked again at it the other day when we were there. It is cozy, and everything has been mapped out in this restaurant. I don’t think any space was wasted.
We go there because they serve good food. If we ask for Salmon, it is hot, and cooked just right for our tastes. The staff is friendly, and they aren’t friendly just because we came through the door. We have been coming to this restaurant for years, on special occasions, because they care about their presentation, and their customers.
Everything is clean at this place. I walk into the restroom, and most of the time it is not messy. Maybe I come right after someone has cleaned it. To me, clean floors, and servers who are friendly is wonderful. They aren’t so friendly that they are flirty, but the men know how to cook, and the ladies are serving us speedily. I haven’t heard any arguments going on with the staff. I believe everyone works in unity for one purpose: to serve good food, in a quiet, refreshing way.
I won’t tell the name of the restaurant. My mom used to say, “If the bathrooms are messy, and dirty, the kitchen should be also. “
I guess she wanted to emphasize that it isn’t always just about serving food. The conduct of the waitresses is important, as well as the cooks. I won’t say where this is, but I live in the South, and it is in a, larger, city that seems to be growing.
I believe atmosphere is so, important. You can have one, noisy, customer and the place is hard to sit through until you eat.
You can ask for the vegetable to be steamed twice, and if it is tough, you know they didn’t steam it twice. Broccoli often needs to be steamed two, times. There are some of us with eye problems, and I often go to this restaurant with Ed after I have had a, painful, eye treatment. The medication they put in the eye to keep away the pain wares off soon, and I begin to hurt
Ice cream helps any pain, and they serve it speedily. I believe when the staff is happy, the customers will be. I believe when people are paid right for their work, they are not concerned about paying bills, as much as enjoying the company that comes to see them.
I am writing this, because when I say, “Let’s go to the little, restaurant, ” Ed takes me there in minutes. It is out of the way, but it is a, favorite, because we have come to know certain people who have been waiting on us for over a, year.
We came too, early last time, and the waitress who knows us wasn’t there. She came when we were leaving. The next waitress was young, and didn’t have the same caring that the first, waitress has. I guess she will learn. People go by first, impressions. I believe when you are warmly greeted, seated in a, reasonable amount of time, and served a delicious meal, it is work on everyone’s part. The team should be thanked.
