A temporary sign announcing the opening of Eddie V’s Prime Seafood has been up at the building next to Equinox on Oak Lawn Avenue for a few months. However today there is an ad for a “tremendous opportunity to those looking to make hospitality their career” on Craigslist. Lord, how many steak and seafood or seafood and steak places can this city handle?
The ad goes on to say they “are looking for team members that have a high understanding of guest service, culinary arts and restauranteurship [sic].” I’ve been to several of the newest restaurants in town, you know the ones that the “top” waiters jump to for the opening buzz and hop off when the next big deal opens, and I haven’t seen much “high understanding” lately.
Too many top end restaurants? Too many servers with a bad attitude? Oh, some of you restaurant servers are giving me tired head. I wish some of you would consider hospitality as a career, not a quick buck.
