It never ceases to amaze me how servers in upscale restaurants can remember what returning customers order. My wife and I have visited restaurants to have lunch, and a month later when we returned, the people who served us a month earlier remembers exactly what we had to eat, what our drinks were, and how we liked our food prepared. They must have waited on hundreds of other customers during that month. How can that be? Is some kind of memory trick involved?
In the case of upscale restaurants, it’s more likely that computers are involved. Restaurants have the ability to keep all kinds of customer data linked to the name of the diner. When you make another reservation, that data is easy to recall. But they must be careful! For example, what if you didn’t want your wife to know that you visited the same restaurant with someone else the week before?!
