…. I Think I’ll Stick to Interning

SERVICE INCLUDED, a new foodie  favorite,  goes behind the scenes of one of the top restaurants in the country. Phoebe, the waitress and author of the book “Service Included”, worked under Thomas Keller at Per Se in the Times Warner Building.

Although the book lacked any real plot and or realistic romantic relationships, I think it was an easy read and helpful for those who wish to embark on waitressing. It’s definitely an honest book and held no bars. Other than specific names of celebrities and high-clientele, every detail was included.

The strongest part of the book was definitely her gradual progression towards becoming a foodie. She went from being unable to cook or understand any food related lingo, to becoming New York Times Food Writer Frank Bruni’s confidante within Per Se. I wouldn’t recommend this book to people who don’t enjoy fine dining; it’s clearly meant to be read by those who have either worked behind the scenes or those whom enjoy the dining experience.
