Looks like there's a Blogger outage in ten minutes, so quickly -
Oh, my god The Grillroom is another world! Busy lunch shifts, sparkling dining room, decent hours (they close at 10:00 p.m. every night!), a very professional staff and an even tighter team than at Nick and Tony's, according to my colleague, Mike. Mike and I are both Nick and Tony's refugees, but he has more seniority than I do, so he's been working at The Grillroom for three weeks. I love Mike so I'm very glad that if I get to work with one person from my old job, it's him.
Maybe it's best that it worked out this way. I loved Nick and Tony's so much and was so mad when it folded, I'm sure I would have snubbed any job I worked at next. But after the Bar Louie experience I am primed to LOVE The Grillroom.
