We've all been in crazy situations, and I want to know how you handle entertaining fiascoes and bad restaurant behavior. I'll present a situation and you tell me what you would do. Here's this week's scenario:
You're the renowned chef and owner of a super popular restaurant in a big city. An important food critic is sitting at a table tonight with his friends. When his order is about to be sent out you realize one of the dishes is completely wrong. What would you do?
To see what I would do in this situation — true story, it happens to Gordon Ramsay all the time! —
Since I would not want to send out an incomplete order to such a significant customer, I would ask the line cooks to remake the entire order. Knowing this takes time, I would quickly throw together an amuse-bouche or appetizer. I would ask my best waiter to send it out to the table and tell them the food was compliments of the chef. The critic would never know there was a crisis in the kitchen.
