How to Become a Regular

Isn’t it great to be a regular of a restaurant and treat like a VIP there – having benefits that no one usually has – like discounts, warmly respected by staff, immediate seating arrargement etc? Well you can now with a guide by Grey Cerveny on how to become a regular. He has more than 20 tips on making you a regular on any restaurant you want. It seems mostly about good manners and don’t take their service as granted because you pay for it:

Restaurant
    • Visit the same restaurant three times in the first month, then once a month ongoing. These are minimums, visit more if you like.
    • Use your name and theirs. Hi [server], my name is [me]…
    • Use the restaurant for a party, catering, or other service.
    • Bring new friends (customers) and introduce them. Use this as an opportunity to stay in touch friends.
    • Tip 20% on the total bill (tax, drinks, everything) and round up to the nearest dollar.
    • Tip the same percentage, don’t over tip unless you plan to do it every time. (Over tipping is not necessary. )
    • Tip on free benefits, or you won’t receive them anymore.
    • Treat servers as if they have more knowledge of the menu items than you , because they do.
    • Work with the same knowledge set as the restaurant. (Know what sushi is hip and what is pop, what dishes are authentic and which are americanized)
    • Inquire about and order house/chef specialties.
    • Don’t ask for the owner if you don’t know him.
