I do not make the decision of what stays on the menu, and what goes on it.
I don't understand why guests feel it will make a difference to tell me what used to be on the menu.
"You know....you used to have this shrimp dish. It was served with this bread and it was grilled, and I don't remember..."
Yeah. That's great.
"You know, there used to be this cake...I don't see it on the menu. It has berries. Do you still have it?"
No. If it's not on the menu, we don't have it. So weird how that works.
"You know, your portions used to be different."
Uh huh. They changed.
It's nice to know the guests think I have such an impact.
