    Congrats. It is always nice to work in a nice even tempo and even tempered kitchen. Best of luck on the new venture.

    I looked up the links - My kind of place! Can't afford to go there but hey, what's that got to do with it......

    Short of not having to work, a good job that you like puts you ahead of most.

    How are the "politics"? In a CC, you have a hierarchy of management so obese that it hinders performance. The top dogs are often completely out of touch with the day to days, yet they can make changes that affect you on a whim. It can be difficult to create a bubble and stay focused only on your job.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

I've never been employed at a hotel, so it's nice to get my foot in the proverbial door after 20+ years in the glamorous foodservice industry.
    I'm working the line at the restaurant http://www.gallery-restaurant.com/ check it out.
    It sucks being the FNG, but I'm really happy to be here. The crew of guys are very welcoming and encouraging. They try hard to help me out through service and lift me up instead of letting me fall down on my station. It's nice to be somewhere that people aren't trying to throw you under the bus from day one. There's no insane yelling no matter how busy, it seems to keep a pretty even tempo.
    I've never worked in a kitchen like this before. No egos, just people doing their jobs well. I'm digging the food as well too. We are able to (for real) use local ingredients and don't have to be tied to any giant foodservice company.
    For the 1st time ever I'm offered benefits, 401k, life and health insurance, and a BIGGIE -short term disability. This means I could get the surgery for my Carpal Tunnel and take the necessary time off for recovery.
    Damn it feels good to be a line cook.
    Congrats man, I too am looking at getting into a hotel, courtesy of Panda. Get that surgery before its too late, and now you are close to home the saving in gas money will be insane.
