I survived it! NYE actually went pretty damn smoothly, right up til the last table- that one was a bit rough. Obviously you know New Year's Eve will be busy, that's a given. But I wasn't prepared for how many steaks I would sell. I cut meat today and figured I had enough to get me to at least Saturday. But the last table of the night was 15 steaks; tops, NY strips, filets and ribeyes. Unfortunately I had to clean and cut three of the four! That part sucked! Put us a little behind.
But overall I can't complain! Sales were fantastic and everything except the last table went extremely well. I planned to count everything after closing but when I hit the 13 hour mark I realized I'd probably be going in early to do it tomorrow instead.
To those of you still bangin' it out in restaurant kitchens, how did your NYE go?
