Meet Your Waiter

Posted By on Thu, Aug 7, 2008 at 8:45 AM

Meet your waiter.

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: Haley Pipkins

Age: 27

Where she works: Loca Luna, bartender and hostess

Favorite dish she serves: The Fillet Mignon, cooked medium rare, served with garlic-mashed potatoes, and the “vegetable medley” (sautéed green beans, squash, and red bell pepper).

Best part about waiting tables: “I love all the people that I work with. People who work at restaurants are…quirky.”

What you may not know: Haley is known as “The Cat Lady”. She has three cats but says that she would own 15 if she could.

Her future plans: Haley is 6 ½ months pregnant. She would love to run a day care out of her home someday, so that she can stay home with her own child and still earn a little money on the side. 

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