Every restaurant I’ve ever worked in does this little trick. I don’t know how it started, but I do know that it works….oddly enough:
*Whenever a guest overstays their welcome at a restaurant, (especially when the next reservation has arrived and is waiting for that table), we sprinkle salt around the table. Someone just grabs a tiny handful of salt and walks around the table while discreetly sprinkling salt on the floor. Without fail, that table leaves within minutes.
I told you, restaurants are live theatre; and sometimes, very wacky theatre at that.
Have a great weekend.
