Employee of the month
At our busiest times, the busser/runner team clears tables quickly and fills them back up by bringing the next guest's meal to the table. It's a position which requires a sense of urgency and an intense presence to perform it well.
Julie Gomez stood out this month to our managers, even though she has only worked here about a year. She has a super power for recognizing a new guest who may need a little extra guidance and even though she is always on the move, she can be spotted greeting them as they come through the door. Her awareness and eye contact make them feel welcome and comfortable enough to ask for help.
Along with her initiative, enthusiasm and desire to serve, she has great follow=through on her tasks and is able to prioritize the needs of the restaurant as it relates to her department. Her dedication to the team is exemplified when management calls on her to fill in for an ill coworker and she responds with "I'll be right in!"
When she isn't dashing through the dining room, speeding out to the patio or carrying bags out to curbside you might find her taking a break with her favorite dish: enchiladas verdes.
Thank you, Julie, for being a key player on the Picante team. We appreciate all you do for us and with us!
Sincerely, Jess, Mario, Rosa, Alex, Chef Luis & Jim
