    Rules for the Unruly? Kids and restaurants!

    in Current Events

    Stephanie Speaks will discuss the topic of kids & restaurants! Some time ago a restaurant decided that no kids would be allowed after a certain time to allow people to have a nice quiet dinner. Some were in a an uproar.  Another one decided that no kids were allowed. Again people were in the uproar! The latest situation was where a child threw food on a customer and the parent was asked to leave. The parent was upset and said had the restaurant not taken so long with her food then the kids wouldn't have been unruly. I could tell that she really just wanted to sit and eat her meal but sometimes you can't do that with little ones. How do you feel about the restaurant asking her to leave. The customer pitched a fit about having food thrown on him. Now she claimed that the waitress said something about coming back when the kids were older and under more control. The mom had alot of supporterts but I had mixed feelings about this. Let's talk about it!

    Event Jeannie's 2015 Winter series; Restaurants, Private rooms & Catering too!

    in Lifestyle

    We are back and more excited than ever to kick off our winter 2015 show series, which will examine restaurants that have catering arms too. It’s a growing segment of the industry and one that has not been properly explored – how to create a great relationship with a restaurant (for smaller private parties) that also has a catering arm for the larger ones.


    “Restaurants, Private Rooms and Catering too!” will cover the small but burgeoning market of restauranteurs that do it all and well.  Tune in on Wednesday, January 14th at noon as BOTH the Director of Catering Sales, Sarah Weisman, and in-house Director of Private Events, Jodi Lynn, for Epicurean Events join us.  Wondering if you should host your next dinner in a private room or at home? We will answer that question, explore cost structures and private space possibilities in the Epiucrean group, which also owns four restaurants in New York: dell’anima, L’Artusi, L’Apicio and Anfora. The Italian inspired cuisine is driven by seasonal products and high caliber service that focuses on being friendly rather than formal; the Italian seeking guests are driven by the amazing tastes, homemade burrata and exceptional customer service.


    After covering everything you ever wanted to know about liquor in our last series, it is time to discover where to find the best food to pair with those cocktails you now know all about!

    Eat Out for FREE by Rating Restaurants' Food Safety!

    in Food

    Do you love to eat out as much as we do?  Have you ever gotten sick after eating out?  Did you know people are hospitalized and some die every day from food poisoning?
    In this episode, we discuss with Dr. Harlan Stueven, a Medical Doctor specializing in Emergency Medicine and Medical Toxicology and Founder of DiningGrades.com, the issue of food poisoning and specific steps you can take to avoid it when eating out.
    For those who eat out regularly, we also share how you can become a part of the solution through rating the restaurants you patronize, and in doing so, how you could sometimes eat out for free!
    Visit our blog here for the two clips we had to cut from the interview, in the interest of time.
    At the beginning of the show, I referenced a previous show about how healthy foods sometimes make us sick if we have food sensitivities.  You can listen to the replay of that episode here!
