We walk on air when we get letters like this

By |March 11th, 2015|Behind the Curtain|0 Comments

(Republished with permission; names changed for son’s privacy) Hi Mr. Omer, My name is Mary and my 16 yr old son John has autism. He is having a very rough transition freshman year into high school. John had many turn away from him because of his behaviors this year, which has led to further poor choices on his part, too. We have struggled many tough situations, so I have been trying to find things to [...]

Inadvertently Insulting the Power Couple

By |September 8th, 2014|Behind the Curtain|0 Comments

Hell’s Kitchen recently received a note that stopped us in our tracks. A gentleman criticized us for not treating “power couples” as VIPs, explaining that “most customers at restaurants are generally pieces of xxxx,” and that we should “ignore most of them but swallow our pride” when we interact with people who are “worthy of special treatment.” We honestly aren’t sure how seriously to take his attack—a quick online search hinted that he’s most likely [...]

“How in the hell did you get Corporate to agree with THIS idea?”

By |January 21st, 2012|Behind the Curtain|0 Comments

Whether you live in New York or New Prague, you might like this behind-the-scenes peek proving it’s not always about the money: On Friday Jan 4, we dropped our jaws when we heard that Embarrass MN, up by the Canadian border, was facing a day that would actually be colder than Mars, according to NASA’s one-ton, nuclear powered robotic rover Curiosity. Minutes later, we spontaneously decided to lure Facebook fans from Embarrass to escape the [...]

Where the hell is my big vulture rubber stamp?

By |December 31st, 2011|Behind the Curtain|0 Comments

It was 10:23 pm, just 2 days before we rang in the New Year, and I was going crazy, tearing apart the restaurant AND our apartment, trying to find my big, wood-handled rubber stamp with the vulture on it. Why was I so desperate for it? Because stacked throughout our little condo, on counters, tables, and wherever there was an inch of space, Mitch, the kids and I had 1,500 gift bags, the kinds with [...]

S-F-D-NUTS from the Peanut Gallery

By |November 9th, 2011|Behind the Curtain|0 Comments

A brief, insightful, and truly sad summary of peanut butter by Mitch Omer. It takes 540 peanuts to make one 12 oz. jar of supermarket peanut butter; at Hell’s Kitchen, we use 603. No shit. And just how do we accomplish this? Well, for one, we don’t take up any space with food modifiers. Two, we don’t add food fortifications, and three, we refuse to use any commercial “spreads” like glycerin and other good stuff. [...]

If We Build It, Will You Come?

By |October 13th, 2011|Behind the Curtain|0 Comments

Cyn here. We’re thinking of adding a bakery, maybe an edgy counterpart to our underground lair. The story so far: I’m squeezed in the middle row of an airplane, elbows scrunched tightly, knees bumping against the seat in front of me (and I’m only 5’2″) just coming back from a weekend bakery seminar in Chicago. The plane’s so crowded that they thew my little roll-on suitcase into the belly of the beast at the last [...]

BEER is my LIFE

By |October 5th, 2011|Behind the Curtain|0 Comments

This is Summit Brewery’s tag line, but it falls woefully short. You owe your life to beer. And you. And you. And you. Without beer, life as we know it would not exist. Personally, I could end this story right there, and feel that I had covered all the bases. The oldest known recipe on earth is for beer, carved into a Sumerian clay tablet. It is because of beer that our knuckle-dragging Neolithic relatives [...]

Gotta Get Steve

By |September 21st, 2011|Behind the Curtain|0 Comments

Within moments of deciding to open our own place in 2002, Mitch looked me squarely in the eye with only one demand: “Gotta get Steve.” This would be Steve Meyer, an industry peer Omer has worked alongside longer than he’s lived with his 3 wives. Talk about an odd couple: Mitch, an imposing polar bear, towers over Steve, a dead ringer for Nintendo’s Dr. Mario. See the picture here? Check it out for yourself. Whenever [...]
