Review:

Any restauranteur, for that matter any businessperson or entrepreneur should read this book. Danny Meyer runs a great business and a terrific book. --Gordon Ransay

When London restauranteurs discuss their New York counterparts the name Danny Meyer is invariably at the forefront - and none of us has articulated better just how to make a restaurant, or indeed any service business outstanding. --Jeremy King, co founder of Le Caprice, The Ivy, J Sheekey, The Wolseley and St Alban

About the Author:

Danny Meyer is the CEO of the Union Square Hospitality Group and co-owner of eleven critically acclaimed establishments in New York, including his first, the Union Square Café, which came second in the Zagat Survey 2006 only because his Gramercy Tavern was number one.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2007. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. abridged edition. 147 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New. Danny Meyer started Union Square Cafe when he was 27, with a good idea and scant experience. He is now the CEO of one of the world s most dynamic restaurant organizations that includes eleven unique dining establishments and each is at the top of its game. How has he done it? How has he consistently beaten the odds in one of the toughest trades around?In this landmark book, Danny shares the lessons he s learned while developing the winning recipe for doing business he calls Enlightened Hospitality. This innovative business philosophy emphasizes putting the power of hospitality to work in a new and counterintuitive way: The first and most important application of hospitality is to the people who work for you, and, in descending order of priority, the guests, the community, suppliers, and investors. This way of setting priorities stands the more traditional business models on their head, but Danny considers it the foundation of every success he, and his restaurants, have had. Full of behind-the-scenes history on the creation of Danny s most famous restaurants, and the anecdotes, advice and lessons he has accumulated on his long and ecstatic journey to the top of the American restaurant scene, Setting the Table is a treasure trove of innovative insights that are applicable to any business or organization.
