Description

In the bestselling tradition of Restaurant Man and Setting the Table, Front of the House is a revealing and wryly humorous behind-the-scenes look at the gracious art of great restaurant service.

Great restaurant service is a gracious art that's been studied, practiced and polished by Jeff Benjamin, two-time James Beard Award nominee and managing partner of Philadelphia's acclaimed Vetri family of restaurants. Sagacious and observant, he beckons us behind the scenes for an insider's look at reserving a table, what your server thinks of you, what it takes to get ejected from a fine restaurant and a host of other revelations.

The author

Jeff Benjamin first joined forces with chef Marc Vetri in 1998 to create Vetri, one of the country's most influential Italian restaurants. The Vetri Family of restaurants now includes six establishments in Philadelphia and New Jersey.
