In Italy, Portofino life makes eating out a part of daily living by putting restaurants at the center of surrounding townhouses. “People go outside and sit around the fountain to feed pigeons. Then they head to dinner like they are in their backyard,” says Harlan Publick owner/cook Stephen Lewandowski. And that’s exactly what he was looking for in being situated in the thick of SoNo’s current surge in development and housing. The pigeons not withstanding.
Starting a restaurant business is no easy feat and there are numerous stats to prove how difficult it is to open one and keep it afloat, let alone to make it successful. However, there are thousands of restaurants in the world that managed to rise above the competition and offer some something absolutely unique to the public.
It’s no secret that small businesses have it rough, regardless of the industry they're active in. They are barely starting out, are typically run by families or plain, ordinary individuals with a modest capital to invest, and are permanently under threat of being crushed by the more powerful chains out there.
On June 12 at approximately 5:20 PM, I leave my grandmother’s Central Park West apartment and meet John at the corner of 86th and Broadway. Holding hands, we head down into the subway, which is packed with rush-hour commuters, and make our way downtown.
With the warmer weather soon on its way, the last thing anyone wants to look forward to is coming home after a long day at the office, only to slave in front of a hot stove to prepare dinner. Eventually, pasta and garden salads lose their appeal and the novelty of eating different salads every day wears off very quickly. Especially if you have kids. Then you may just decide to skip the dishes and take the family out for a cheeseburger and french fries. When you are exhausted from the daily grind at the office and the kids are constantly arguing about what to do to keep busy during the summer months, the last thing on your mind when you pull up to the drive-through window is to show proper etiquette. It may not seem significant at the time, but take a minute to collect yourself before you place an order at any drive-though window. Trust me, you will be glad you did. Keep in mind that the people who work for fast food chains are human beings just like you and I. They may not have a fancy job title but they have to make sure their own kids are provided for. They also probably have a ton of bills to pay and on top of everything else, they are also dealing with the ups and downs of life just like everyone else. So when you feel like yelling or cussing at the person hidden from behind the drive-through window because you are having a bad day; refer back to what I mentioned earlier in this post. Take a deep breath and chill. The cheeseburger and french fries will thank you for your kindness and patience. Not to mention, your insides.
