People, Pandemic and Hospitality : The art is not lost at El Gaucho

Description

Seattle's El Gaucho Steakhouse is a long time upscale dining staple, or as they call it " fine dining of a bygone era".    The tuxedoed staff, the table side flambé'd desserts,  the dimly lit intimate seating, and the soft trickle of the piano keys set the stage for a luxurious dining experience that feels like you were transported right back into the nostalgically swanky rat pack era.    Theirs is a place for fancy celebration or to make an moment worthy of an occasion.   

Such longevity of service and attention to detail has garnered them a high platform to speak to the art of hospitality and what truly matters most in it; the people.       From their family-like employee atmosphere to the level of attention they put into each guest experience, people are at the root of everything they do.    The art of hospitality is as important while dining for happy hour, an elegant milestone meal, or receiving a to-go box at home. 

Listen to Anna Lee, El Gaucho Seattle's event director, speak to the core of hospitality for them and the challenging pivots made during a pandemic while launching the open of a moved restaurant location.    Hear the trials and survival that so many restaurants face(d) and the challenges to meet expectations for their guests.

El Gaucho has been a special part of my personal story for the last 10 years. An unusual symbol of celebrating life.  You'll hear some excerpts of a toast I gave during a celebration of a 10 year milestone, calling us to live life now-don't wait to celebrate occasions.     I encourage people to say the things that matter, notice the character traits that carry weight and share what we admire.
