Concord Restaurants-or lack of!

Hi there,

Just had to share an experience with everyone.
Myself and a friend of mine (an executive chef) went to 55 Degrees on Main Street in Concord last Friday night. I had been there one time before and found everything to be a bit overpriced, but the food was great. Being in the business, had also heard that the owner was difficult to get along-Well...saw that first hand. We entered the restaurant and proceeded to go to the bar in the back of the restaurant. The bartender was new, but was personable none-the-less and apologetic for his lack of knowledge about the martini menu. The owner stood at the end of the bar and stared at him and questioned his every move-right in front of us!! THE GUESTS! Talk about micro-managing. Very demeaning to everyone she came in contact with (her staff). We were really put off because this is a small restaurant and we come from the old belief that restaurant owners should mingle with their guests. To stand at the end of the bar and not acknowledge guests who are spending very good money-is VERY bad in my taste. Needless to say, we will not return to this restaurant based on these actions. The food was a little sub-par this visit as well. I encourage all small restaurant owners to welcome your guests and thank them for their patronage! It really goes a long way...
