They were delightful.
It had been a hard day’s slog and the sight of your cocktail bar at the Star was like an oasis in the desert. When you asked what I would like and I asked for a Manhattan you did just the right things:
a. You asked me how I would like it…thus indicating that you knew there were several courses that could be taken…
b. You understood me when I said ” rye and perfect “.
c. Then you did what was asked for. Perfectly.
I hope the management of the Star realise that you know what you are doing and that they reward you for it. Expertise is valuable, and you have exhibited it.
