Have you ever wondered if the Chef who is working the breakfast shift is a Father? The Hilton Garden Inn employs a wonderful Chef and apparently he is so good there was a food critic there. When we arrived we wondered up to the line to order our breakfast. We were greeted by a Chef who was so polite, and friendly. He made us feel welcome and as though our order was the only one he had to cook, all the while he had about 6 other orders going at the same time. One of our party had a dairy intolerance, and he was able to accomodate her without any disruption to what he was doing. Despite the fast pace of that Father's day breakfast, the Chef put out food which was fantastic, flavorful and pleasing to the eye. He even made Mickey mouse pancakes for a little girl, which I'm sure made her happy.
Now back to the food critic, as we wrapped up our breakfast, I saw the food critic approach the line to speak with the Chef. Do you know who the food critic was? It was his 3 year old daughter, how do you know you ask - because she had a sign on her back "I'm the food critic and the Chef is my Dad!" Apparently she had come with her family to have breakfast with her DAD even if he was the one cooking. So the next time you go out, take time to wish that Chef, or anyone who is waiting on you during a holiday a happy day. I could see this Dad, was happy and proud even if he had to work.
I would recommend breakfast at the HIlton Garden in Portsmouth, NH to anyone who is looking for a friendly environment and a great Chef.
