Saturday will be my last day at the restaurant (and Sous Chef J’s as well). I wish it were the last day for everyone but it seems that the closing date keeps dragging on (no doubt in an effort to continue making money on this place before the other restaurant officially opens). We are all feeling incredibly burnt out. It’s funny though because while tension has been high and more arguments have broken out lately, they’ve also dissipated quickly because what’s the point.
On the bright side, I am very much looking forward to spending time with Honey Bunny during my week-long staycation and I am excited for the new adventure ahead. News spread like wildfire after I told Chef last week. On Tuesday, Front of House Owner shook my hand, told me it was “fantastic news,” and congratulated me on getting the job. Others have had nothing but good things to say about this new restaurant and perhaps more notably, about my ability to secure a position there.
Just two more days!
