AUSTIN, TEXAS — South Congress bartender, Darren Johnson, enjoys eating out and is thrilled to have that option available again. We caught up with him yesterday during a late lunch with his roommates, who also work in the service industry.
“Yep, all finished here,” he said to his server while stacking plates and silverware. “Hey Alicia, are you finished with this side of béarnaise?!” he yelled to Alicia, who was helping another table navigate the cocktail menu.
“Hmm, I’m not sure what kind of orgeat they use here, but it’s typically almo… Yeah, all clear, thanks Darren!” she yelled back. “Let me go check with the bartender on that. Can I take this glass from you?”
She started to walk to the bar, but paused to wave a guest by first.
