But Sue Doodys Lindeys endured the years of too many chefs- of too few tables to make ends meet- of waiters who served more attitude than food- of zoning nightmares, parking fiascos, cursed equipment failures, and each new managers valiant innovations (a roving accordionist? peacocks in the courtyard? flaming desserts in a historic landmark with wooden floors?).Twenty-five years later, Lindeys remains one of the most popular, inventive, and profitable bistros in the nation, the flagship of the Doody familys 60 fine-dining establishments.Even if youve never dined at Lindeys, these stories could be set at whatever restaurant you frequent.

(Surely you have a bartender who sets out your drink even before youve settled onto your stool?)If youve ever worked in a restaurant, youll identify with the spectacles and spirited exchanges recounted here. (Youll only wish that youd have said to the diner asking if youre positive your pot is decaf, Well, if its not, I know where you can bowl all night for five bucks.)If youve ever fancied starting a business, this loose ledger of Lindeys quarter century might persuade you that the time is now--or, perhaps, never.

(Can you spot a cook clocking out with a filet mignon wedged between her thighs?)Every page of As the Tables Turn is a genial communion of splendid food, raised glasses, and convivial souls--all the fixings for a long and long-remembered evening of storytelling and laughter.
