Here’s a quick tale of a restaurant that got it so right.
Had a business meeting on Wednesday and as they both knew about the allergic girl sitch they asked me to suggest an AG friendly spot midtown. I chose Dos Caminos Third Avenue as back in my publishing days I’d take both authors and agents to the Dos Caminos Park Avenue outpost and they were usually pretty decent about allergies. [PS I didn't call ahead and I didn't talk with management when I arrived.]
Either the B.R. Guest Restaurant Group has stepped up the allergy love or this chef took it upon himself to step it up.
After explaining my needs and the server checking with the kitchen our dishes arrived. My dish had a sticker on it that said “Allergy” in bold red letters. (What?! Yay!!)
The busser took off the sticker and handed me my allergy-free dish. I’ve never seen that used before and I loved it!
As we started our meal, the floor manager made himself known to us just to check in specifically with my needs and my dish. Love, love, love that!
This is how it should be folks. Don’t expect anything less. Seriously.
Thank you Dos Caminos, you have my patronage!
