Remember to set
Your clocks back before bedtime
Yay for morning light!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend a lecture by Tony Foreman, restaurateur extraordinaire in Baltimore, along with his wife, Chef Cindy Wolf. They own Pazo, Charleston, Cinghiale, Petit Louis, Bin 604 and Bin 201. That is A LOT of stuff to take care of, but he seems to thrive on being busy. It was so interesting to hear him talk about his early life and the business of owning a restaurant.
One thing that really stood out to me was his emphasis on treating customers well. He is aware that his restaurants, most notably, Charleston, are expensive, so he believes that the staff should treat the guests like they are pleased they are there. I actually agree that when Dan and I went to Petit Louis, our waiter did exactly that.
Anyway, now I am VERY intrigued about going to Charleston, but we'll have to save up for a couple of months for that treat. Has anyone been there - what do you think about it? Any comments about Foreman and Wolf's other restaurants?
