Last Service Before Christmas
Tonight was or last service in the restaurant before Christmas and it was busy - with 69 covers - basically our maximum capacity. We had eight tasting menus booked, 24 tables of two, three tables of four, a table of one, a few important customers, and a few special dietary requirements. But for the most part, service went very smoothly, at least on the pastry side of things. We didn't have to do too much prep work, since it had been quiet the past few nights and we would be closed for a while after tonight, which gave us plenty of time to focus on afternoon tea prep for tomorrow. It was a late night with lots of extra cleaning to do.
