Blah, blah, blah â€¦ Le Cordon Bleu, blah, blah, blah â€¦ everyone knows nothing about food except me, blah, blah, blah â€¦ you are all a bunch of ignorant simpletons who eat nothing but dead cow and couldnâ€™t tell the difference between an apple and a potato if it rolled off your trailer trash and onto your paper plate.
Dear Mr. Gourmet (â€œCut Shawn some slack,â€? Letters, Dec. 2-9), your arrogance is amazing. You have no idea what my background in food is or where in the world I have eaten. Do you even know who Kathy Hardesty is? You donâ€™t sound like a New Times reader. We feel Kathy is the best regularly published food critic in the county.
Come on, Shawn put you up to this didnâ€™t he? You both have that same attitude. What is your point? Are you saying that just because you own a restaurant you can treat people â€œcold and hardâ€? because nobody understands the business?
Didnâ€™t Restaurant Management 101 teach you how to:
1) Balance the front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house operations because both have a strong impact on quality?
2) Provide service to the customer that will make them want to return?
Maybe they only teach this at the University of Hard Knocks!
