For some fun weekend reading I’ve put together a list of popular restaurant blogs, including one from Waiter Rant by Steve Dublanica, who turned his blog into a NY Times best seller, called, appropriately enough Waiter Rant: Thanks for the Tip – Confessions of a Cynical Waiter. I thought all waiters were cynical? And waitresses even more so? Maybe that’s just me.
Political correctness stops here. Restaurant language sprinkled with a good dose of vulgarity is found in most of these blogs, so consider yourself warned.
• The Insane Waiter – A lengthy blog that goes back to 2005.
• The Bitter Waitress – Along with a handy list of bad tippers, the Bitter Waitress offers up a bevy of advice, including how to dress for a job interview.
• The Well Done Filet – Good Things Come to Those Who Wait – Includes a whole section of blogs dedicated to “before you dine.”
• Barmaid Blog – Manhattan 20-somethings writes about her experiences tending bar in the Big Apple.
