I don’t know which question slammed me more:
“Why are you applying for the host job and not the assistant manager position?”
“Am I talking to Restaurant Gal?”
Yeah, no contest.
Am I really ready to be a manager?
Ha Ha. Only kidding.
What I mean is, am I ready to work for someone who knows I am The Gal?
Ha Ha. Kidding again.
What I really mean is, am I ready to be an assistant manager to a GM who knows I am The Gal?
All kidding aside.
Am I ready to make this move?
Not that it has been formally offered to me. But I am hopeful it will be.
In the words of one of the best “old-school” waiters in my city when he found out I was going to be a maitre d’ last year: “How the hell you gonna do that?”
