THE PODIUM IN PICTURES
Masterfully depicted as only Restaurant Gal Daughter’s Barbie collection can tell the tale.

Hi everyone! Restaurant Gal and Restaurant Gal Daughter welcome you to lunch!
We’re ready for the rush by 11:01 a.m. every weekday. It’s true, the guys on the host staff are allowed to go barefoot and dress as if they are going to the beach.
A personal favorite: The backhanded “Table for Two” gesture from a scary-looking customer.
Happily seated customers. Or are they? The customer on the left likes the table. Her friend wants a booth. The customer on the left is telling her friend to deal with the table. The friend is telling the customer on the left it’s not so easy to deal with the table and she should try fitting HER legs under the table. The customer on the left asks her friend if she wants to switch tables. The friend is telling the customer on the left it doesn’t matter. The customer on the left tells her friend she wants her to be comfortable. The friend is telling the customer on the left it didn’t seem like she cared so much about her comfort a second ago. Restaurant Gal is patiently waiting to tell both of them they better stay put or be prepared for an hour wait.
Here’s the wacky night crew, ready for work an hour or so after their start time.
The night crew likes to take a break. Couple of updates to note, however. One girl has been fired, one had her baby, and one hostess and one of the chefs are still an item.
When you’re a hostess in love, you can sneak a kiss with the chef at the podium.
Restaurant Gal and Restaurant Gal daughter face the Friday frenzy at 12:15 p.m.
Contest questions for my readers after they carefully scrutinize this image:
1) How long is the wait for a table?
2) Who was there first?
3) Who claims to know the owner?
4) Who will say they have a reservation when they don’t?
5) Which three customers are regulars?
Hope you enjoyed this fun foray into THE PODIUM IN PICTURES!
