About the Author
is run by a group of 18 women and men who rotate through the jobs necessary to make a restaurant go. We plan menus, set long-term goals, and wash pots. Our ranks are bolstered by about half a dozen employees.
Major decisions are made collectively, and while democracy at work and at meetings has required effort and determination, the payoffs have been rich. Most of us have worked together for nearly ten years, and some of us since the restaurant's inception in 1973. Personally, we are an assortment of individuals who have become a family -- caring deeply for one another, striving for fairness and consensus, and putting-up-with and letting-go-of various human foibles. Professionally, our collective process has worked well for seventeen years. Come visit!
