RE: What Makes A Memorable Dining Experience for YOU?
Great food and atmosphere of course. But as a person who dines alone often I like a wait staff that is comfortable with that. It actually makes some servers nervous and they feel they have to over compensate by having a conversation with you. Now if their interesting people I have know problem with that, but most of them aren’t great conversationalists on the fly. I was being seated at a table last year on vacation and just happened to sit facing the wall, not even thinking about it. After comments from several of the staff and a bartender who could see me from the next room I felt obliged to turn around! I wasn’t offended in anyway, but thought it was an interesting study in human nature.
