So glad I found this place... My father is a European immigrant and started working in restaurants the moment he stepped on American land. I grew up in the restaurant business, am now 25, and have been working for ten years in the industry. I've been running a small mom and pop style cafe for a little over 4 years now. It's a seven day a week place with a lot of competition around, and a forced low price menu to keep the people coming in the doors.
I'm looking at renting a steakhouse with my wife (possibly in the next few weeks signing a lease). A little worried because I'm not very experienced in the steakhouse aspect of restaurants but I've got to learn sometime. A bit tired of the family style restaurant busy idiot work that goes with it. So I'm hoping I can pull in as much advice as I can through everyone's experiences... and offer some if I can myself as well.
