Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Part memoir, part social commentary, part guide to how to behave when dining out, Debra Ginsberg's book takes readers on her twent-year journey as a waitress at a soap-operatic Italian restaurant, an exclusive five-star dining club, the dingiest of diners, and more. While chronicling her evolution as a writer, Ginsberg takes a behind-the-scenes look at restaurant life--revealing that yes, when pushed, a server will spit in food, and, no, that's not really decaf you're getting--and how most people in this business are in a constant state of waiting to do something else" — back cover.

Synopsis:

An intimate, funny portrait of life behind the swinging tin-plated doors of a restaurant explores the diners, Italian family eateries, and five-star restaurants that employed the author over her twenty years as a waitress. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.
