During this inaugural couple of weeks help out in the dining room as well. Help with the expediting of service , table check with guests on how they are enjoying their dining experience. Never stop doing table checks. I believe in the hands on approach rather than the delegating approach. Even if it is doing something as simple as getting bread for a table or delivering some drinks to help a waiter who is in the weeds. Remember if a waiter gets swamped for a minute it is the guest who suffers. Put your ego aside and muck in and help.
Linen and Accessories: Â When you coordinate the table linen to thecolors that you have chosen for the dining area, remember that matching is farmore difficult than contrasting. In any case, too much matching of colors amongall the elements of a dining room may not even look that attractive; acontrasting palette may look more interesting and attractive on the whole. Soif you have beige on the walls, consider wine colored table cloth and beigecolored table napkins. Or contrast the color of the china and serving dishes tothe color of the table cloth to get a dramatic and attractive look.
So you can create a great dining atmosphereby mixing and matching to create a reflection of your personality rather thanfollowing structure rigidly.To be an effective Dining Room Manager there are certain attributes you should have to run an efficient food and beverage operation each meal service. There are a lot of managers out there who are great at doing the paperwork as in making the schedules and calculating the food cost but if they do not know how to lead and build a team in the Dining Room they will soon find themselves unemployed very quickly.
Another downfall that occurs which causes failure is the human need to be one of the buddies. A lot of managers want to be liked rather than respected. To achieve respect do not socialize with your service personnel. If you want something done the next day and you have been socializing with that person you need to talk to , do not expect a good result. After all , last night you put yourself in a compromising position saying how great a person they are. You may get away with it once but do yourself a favour and keep your distance in a nice way. Your main concern is getting everyone to work together. Do not show favourites either or the others will see it and you are doomed to failure.
