What can you learn by working in the restaurant business? Plenty

For many, working in a restaurant is a first job. Usually it’s as a dishwasher, busser or host. Then you move up or get out. I think I’ve spoken to half the chefs in town who started out washing dishes, got bitten by the restaurant bug and could never really leave. Many of you reading this probably worked in a restaurant at some point and didn’t have the interest or passion to stay with it, though you probably miss aspects of that work.
