Rules of the Road and their applicability to lodging

Anyone who has been in the SF area might have dined at one of the many Max's Opera Cafes there.  Max is a real person and has definite opinions and even laws that he's published. While these are food related they point to things that should happen in a dining experience. Substitute Marriott for restaurant and see how many apply.


Max's Laws

This restaurant is run for the enjoyment and pleasure of our customers, not the convenience of the staff or the owners.

You get a free round of drinks if anyone on our staff comes up and says, "is everything all right?"  When we ask questions, they'll be good ones.

You MUST get your mustard and ketchup before your burger, sandwich or fries.

We hate soggy fries.  If yours aren't crisp, the way you like them-send them back--maybe the kitchen will get the message.

Corned beef and pastrami are good because they contain some fat; however, with today's dietary consciousness, our corned beef and pastrami are now extra lean.  So ask for a little fat for   that traditional taste. If you want something with no fat, how about our turkey or turkey pastrami?

The turkey is always fresh.  Period.

Our iced tea is table brewed.  Just pour it over a big glass of ice.

You'll love our breads and pastries.  They are made fresh daily in Max's Bakery and Kitchen.

Warning:  We bake our own sourdough crusty as can be.  If you like soft bread, eat the middle.

Our ice cream sauces are a point of pride.  They're made in New York by a certified chocoholic who refuses therapy.  They are simply the best in the country.  And we don't boast idly.

We bring ice cream sauces from New York City.  Eat here.  Save the airfare.

This is a bad place for a dietsm and a good place for a diet.

Our desserts are excessive because nothing succeeds like excess.  We encourage sharing if you're not super hungry.

Substitutions are okay by us; don't be bashful, you've got a mouth, use it.

We use cholesterol-free oil for frying and sauteing; anything can be grilled fat-free.

If you are a single diner and are greeted with the expression, "just one?", dinner is on us.

We agree that the customer is always right.  If there is a  problem with your food or service, call for the manager--we'll fix it in a flash.  But, if you finish  your plate--it couldn't have been all that bad!  Now, could it?
