The difference between fine dining and everything else is in the details. There is a unique choreography to the experience, which can be thrown off when a team member is slow to remove a plate or another fails to refill your drink. But when the rhythm of the waitstaff and the experience all comes together, it can make you feel like you’re a part of an elegant ballet.
Here are New York’s top 15 restaurants for the highest quality busser/runner teams. These talented teams don’t let anything slip through the cracks: they are the glue that holds the restaurant together; the stage managers who quietly shine the spotlight on the meal.
Congratulations to these restaurants for keeping fine dining alive and well in New York City.
