The mind of a restaurant professional is a curious thing. Those who thrive in this profession are, first and foremost, manic about multitasking. You also must possess the ability to trust your co-workers, and in turn, read their minds like you would your spouse’s. You have a way of being available when a co-worker needs your help, and you be able to help with out speaking more than a sentence. You must trust that someone can do the same for you in return. You brain must work like a sponge to absorb massive amounts of information and retain it- menu retention, stories about wine, and at Passionfish this also includes a self-taught, mini degree in all things sustainable and ocean-related. Perhaps the most important quality a truly successful server or manager must have is not only the ability to thrive under moderate to high levels of stress but to actually must crave it.
