organizing grill colours

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What is the traditional method of organizing colours on the pass? I've always arranged least to most cooked. Logic being that I don't want carry over cooking to affect the least cooked item.

The last sous arranged his plates opposite, which I gather is the "proper" way to do it. The manager and I got into a discussion the other day, his logic being that if we keep the organization the same, his servers don't need to communicate re: colors.

My argument is that they should always be asking for colours anyways especially since they often run tables in teams - how does the second guy know whats already been taken out?

I agree with this. Less is more when it comes conversation between kitchen and front of house. I used to put the more rare item of a group on the servers right and progressing through degrees of donesss to the left as I plated. Rare to the Right, easy to remember.

Less is more when it comes conversation between kitchen and front of house. First guy crosses off items, that he carries, on the dupe so that second guy knows what has gone.

Head down, plating the next dupe, server starts asking about temps.

Without looking up you say "Rare to the right."

Interestingly enough, that works out to be the same as my method with our pass.
