Let’s raise our gold-plated Imperial flutes in a toast to server Nick Kotecki and sommelier Clint Day of Bijoux. These two provided stellar service during the madness of KRLD Restaurant Week. The dedicated Disher reports:
I have a picture of the server, Nick Kotecki, and the sommelier Clint Day, for you. We had professional, friendly and overall wonderful service. We loved the wine parings, the pork belly appetizer was fantastic as were the gnocchi, everyone was happy with their entrees and we all had the cheese course which was amazing! Thanks for recognizing great servers!
No, thank you for taking the time to point them out.
I would like to nominate Peter from Stephan Pyles for RW server of the week.Peter along with management team, bread man, and others orchestrated the timing perfectly and made sure each time everything is satisfactory and asked if we had any questions. In the rain, even valet service was outstanding. I was impressed with the creativity of every dish with Texas/southwest in mind. Manager Michael Bracher said they always use local ingredients. Really different level of experience.
The 2011 KRLD Restaurant Week has come to an end but we have one last bit of business. Francisco at The French Room is our server of the week. Thanks to Laurie for submitting Francisco at The French Room’s picture and a small description of his service.
He was entertaining in a theatrical way, making the meal more memorable. When he poured some Champagne for my friend, he also topped off mine with a little flourish. When we asked to make some substitutions, Francisco was gracious about it, and all the orders came out correct. We felt taken care of by him and his assistant (not sure what that man’s title is). The only negative was that he was a wee bit condescending after we tried to give him the 4th course certificate. He scoffed, and said a little haughtily, “not here.”
Well, really Laurie. You should have ordered another bottle of Champagne. Life is short.2 Comments »
