At the beginning I was in survival mode, which was a rush, but when that wore off I started to feel the stress of it. I was raising my kids and I didn't have partners or managers. It was hard until I realized that I could view things from another angle: that I was the one in charge of fixing the problems, and that that was my job. Eventually I got my stride. Once I surrendered to what my role was, things became easier to manage.
There are certain key things that direct my decision-making. I focus on keeping the morale up and keeping the concept going and above all, I have to stay true to my story my original intentions for the business. My vision at its roots was about people, conviviality and good humor.
The waiting staff are one big happy group. With their sense of humor and kindness really puts a smile on your face. They all are wonderful individuals who take care of each other.
