Atypical New York

New York City View from Brooklyn Bridge

This summer I ventured off to New York City for an extended weekend.  While I did all typical things one does when in NYC (eat, shop, stroll along avenues, and go to theater), one thing distinguished this trip from so many others. I noticed the change in customer service.

I do not know what happened, but the days of f*ck off attitude are gone amongst New Yorkers. While waiting for a shop assistant to find the right denim wash that I was looking for, I was treated with tentative care, making sure that I don’t dehydrate on a hot summer day. On a Saturday night, my friends and I walked into one of the hottest restaurants in Meatpacking District without a dinner reservation. Although fully booked, the restaurant staff made sure that we were accommodated. Whether the reason for these customer experiences was me or the chance, I was impressed. So well done New York!

Oh and if you wonder who has better Peking duck – Tao restaurant or Buddakan, the answer is Buddakah! For the stunning décor and service both places should be on the list of upscale Asian restaurants to visit in the city.
