Front of the HouseRestaurant Manners, Misbehaviors & Secrets


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. Observant, sagacious and wryly humorous, 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.
