Central Food is People: Kendra

Restaurants have gatekeepers. These are the people at the front desk who must handle the onslaught at 6:30 p.m. on Friday or 10:00 a.m. on Sunday. They keep everybody calm as they find ways to get them a table, manage their special needs and in general keep them happy. Gatekeepers have to be special people with an endless love of humanity. They have to be saints with great spatial relation abilities.  Kendra has been handling our gatekeeping for the last year and no one has embodied that genuine care in the way Kendra has.

In addition to her front desk ninja skills she also is a talented artist that has been making us look good for the last year with her hand drawn signs for all of our events. We feel guilty for hoarding her skills to ourselves so let it be known she is available for your illustration needs as well. We adore Kendra and we couldn’t be happier that she is expanding her role here and taking on a new role as server as well as guiding the next generation of gatekeepers.
