Meet your waiter

Posted By on Sun, Jul 20, 2008 at 12:20 PM

Obviously, if you are reading this blog, you love food. You think about it, you read about it, you probably even dream about it. As foodies, we care deeply about our food and where it comes from. We wonder about the farms that produce what we eat. We wonder about the chefs that can create dishes that we only wish we could make ourselves. But how often do we wonder about who is serving our food?  Well, Meet Your Waiter hopes to change all that. Here, we will highlight those unsung heroes of the restaurant biz, without which your food would never get from that brilliant chef in the kitchen all the way to your table. Some things you learn about them may surprise you. Other things you may have had pegged the minute you laid on eyes on them. Either way, meet your waiter this week:

Name: John Green, bartender

Age: 32

Where he works: Vermillion Water Grille

Favorite dish he serves: John is a vegan, so his favorite dishes are the Grilled Artichoke and Olive Bruschetta appetizer and the Vegan Leek Tostada.

Best part about waiting tables: John likes working downtown because he meets all kinds of people from all over the map. “There is a whole side of Little Rock that I never knew existed”, he says. “There are lots of people from all over the world that come to Little Rock on business or just to visit.”

What you may not know: John is a grad from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. 

His future plans: Right now, John is busy planning his October 2009 wedding. He met the blushing bride while on the job at Vermillion two and half years ago. 


 If you want your favorite waiter profiled here, leave a comment and let me know where they work and why they are awesome.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
