The new menu went live today.
We weren’t entirely ready. But what else is new? Launching a new menu, opening a bar, tweaking an existing menu, getting a promotion, birth… with all of these things, when are you totally ready?
I am excited about the food. We have brought two things in from my previous bar… marinara and chili. I love these menu items. Hearts and souls were poured into these items at their creation. These items are like the painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel… but not made from paint. But I remember years ago when my chef touched his curled finger to the chili and gave life to it.
While I was proud of the menu at opening, I am even more proud of the tweaks we made. Sustainability is part of my focus… and a menu that costs more to make than it can be sold for is not sustainable.
So there will be more tweaking and things that need to be addressed, a finely tuned machine still needs oil, but I am looking forward to selling some food and seeing the people smile with satisfaction from their meal.
And now, I am about to start my shift an see how things are going.
