I’ve heard this twice. In the space of two weeks. From two different restaurant general managers.
Once was at Slice Perfect in the West Village while sampling their menu. The other time was at Hearth, while talking to GM about whether they could handle food allergies; I have yet to dine there.
This declaration of my lack of fault-ness was in a direct reference to talking to the GMs about food allergies and how some people may not want to bother the chef with their requests or the kitchen or feel shy about their allergies. To which those food service professionals said, “It’s not your fault that you have allergies”.
Two GMs saying this isn’t a trend but it was worth noting. Is there a shift going on? What do you think?
