New York restaurants merge the low-margin world of food businesses like grocery stores with taste-predicting industries like Hollywood browse around here.

The money quote:
The two decent young men who opened the restaurant remained decent throughout, if numbed by how hard it has been to support their families with a business that has grossed, consistently, two million dollars per year.
This was written by someone who had the money as opposed to the cooks and waitstaff who worked there. Where is their interview? While I’m sure they’ll find to survive in the city the fact remains that they will have to find ways to temporarily cope with their reduced incomes.
As an outsider to the entire scene in NYC, it’s easy to say that if you’re looking to do more than feed elitist economical minorities you need to leave the big cities and head elsewhere.
Came back out of retirement to post this. I still have one or two more things to say, I guess.
It’s been a while, yeah. Turns out you can’t have a site like this when all your perspective is coming from the kitchen.
I’m still cooking but hopefully I’ll be able to post a bit more often now.
Should you have to dress sexy to keep your job? Many women working at some of Canada’s popular restaurant chains say they do, which some experts argue is discriminatory.

That’s Spanish for “I only come here for the busy time”
As a fellow cook it’s not something I can say I’m glad to hear. While working during the busy hours makes the time go by that much faster, it also means that you consider anything else beneath your attention, including cleaning up, restocking your station, and letting people know what else should be prepped so there aren’t any nasty surprises for someone else to find.
Cooking in a kitchen is a team effort; you come in, you do your thing, you do it well. But it also means that a certain standard is kept up by everyone in there. If they’re weeded, you help; if you’re weeded, they help you project management team.
When a cook is leaving the kitchen it is a manager’s responsibility to make sure that the cook has stayed up to the standards in that kitchen. Maybe it takes more work, maybe it takes less work, but it’s not just announcing that you’re leaving and then just… leaving, no matter what station’s condition is. The cook has to be held responsible for it.
For myself it is also a question of personal pride. Not just that nobody else will find fault with my work, but also knowing for myself that I did a good job and I can look someone in the eye when I talk about my job.
Deviled is the lowest form of egg hop over to this web-site.
If everyone quits their bullshit corporate jobs and follows their dreams, who will buy all this artisan toast?
I wish I knew how to jazz up my oatmeal.

You know what you do when it’s slow?
Then you clean some more.
Then you clean the little crevices with a toothpick to get all the gunk out.
Then you wipe everything down with a clean towel and sanitizer and spray the stainless with polish to make it look all nice and pretty.
This is a time where the real cooks prove their mettle. Cooking is not just about how good your food tastes or how delicious it looks. It is also about how clean you keep your station.
Don’t forget to cook those tickets that do come in though.
Ugh, it looks so delicious, I cannot take it. The editing on this is awesome and makes it look even tastier, starting with the chef sharpening the knives.
Excuse me, I have to go eat something now.

Funny how it works, right? One would stand to reason that most foodie internet publications are made by caucasian people who have finished college and have surrounded themselves with people like them.
Silicon Valley demographics applied to food.
It is late at night, we’re all more than drunk, and it is proving rather hard to sleep.
Don’t forget about brunch, later today.
I just hope by the time all of you make it to work in the morning there is already a nice big pot of coffee ready to go.
Why are coffee geeks nerding out over nitro coffee?

They are getting excited now, but they will quickly denounce it when Starbucks brings its own version to market, thereby killing all excitement surrounding the drink.
We’ll all switch to beer then.
I wanted to start the first official post here with something nice, but alas, it was not to be.
I misplaced my tablet at work and someone took it.
