A few tips if dining out is your choice…
Let restaurants know ahead of time of any food allergies or dietary preferences.
If headcounts or plans change, call ahead so restaurant staff can make adjustments to your table. Planning ahead always makes for a more pleasant experience.
Also, remember to tip service staff with the knowledge that servers also tip out the bartender, bussers and food runners.
Mother’s Day is traditionally one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants. Bon Appétit.
