Meet Your Waiter

Posted By on Sun, Sep 7, 2008 at 9:51 AM

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: Abby Myers

Age: 24

Where she works: Flying Saucer

Favorite dish she serves: The Buffalo Chicken Wrap. It’s fried chicken, wing sauce, blue cheese dressing, carrots, and celery in a tomato-basil wrap. She washes it down with a New Belgium Mothership Wit Beer.

Best part about waiting tables: Getting away from school, which is where she is if she’s not at work.

What you may not know: Abby is a Art History major at UCA. She says that she stands out in her classes as the “square one”. “Most of the other students are pretty eccentric”, she says. “I’m very plain Jane.”

Her future plans: Abby’s dream job is to be the curator of corporate collections for a major company. (Wow, that is square!) (Just kidding, Abby).

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