Restaurant servers have all the answers. What’s in it? What does it come with? What does it pair well with?
The best question to ask a server, however, is not factual. It’s their opinion.
“What do you like here?”
Get their opinion. Lower their guard. Start a conversation.
It’s usually fun. And, since it’s not merely the server regurgitating what they memorized during training, it usually uncovers the best stuff on the menu.
