As the holidays get closer and closer. Without further ado it's a pleasure attracted Jim Carroll's Jim is that general manager and owner of dean is restaurant. In the beautiful community of delicate count Jim good morning welcome to the share. Good morning Brendon thanks for ebony. Always a pleasure and and what is charity about your location you're at fifteen Washington street in Alcatel and I can't just say Jim probably at this point in the season your mantra might be glad it's now. Are you looking forward to us some winter wonderland before we get off the ground here. Actually I mean this is at times a year where we. We're hoping to see some cold temperatures and some flakes in the air in both the skiers here really really good at making so as well but. We vote supernatural stuff common. Well we shouldn't disappoint Ethier opened year round eighteen is right to imagine there's it's at a signatures to seasonal location. Oh look at those become. More before she's in town. Certainly is open or open tree. Well not realistic effect is your world over Christmas and Thanksgiving but other now we're open all the time for starting at 7 AM for breakfast in right on through there. It's a thing to I think some people might be suppressing our that your corporate breakfast lunch and dinner. And I your food is made to order using her a lot of local ingredients whenever that's possible tell us about the philosophy of your menu. Well we do we dutrow uses much. No farm to table type. Food that we can get their hands on her locally. The distribution and allow that stuff is doing great shall. We do the best we can weather but everything is made to order old enemy we. We don't other than maybe some sauces you there's not and its. Prepared in advance and we wait for the ticket to come back we beat Camille. Fresh. When you walk in every time so. There's a little bit more that goes into it for that but. I think on the customer side they're getting a much fresher and to issue real. I think so too Jim and I also killed it's at people are much more discerning these days about their dining out experience. They want their type of farm to table food whenever possible. And certainly I think the expectation is that things are made from scratch for the most part because as mark competition and than ever in Western New York. And dine out here are certainly you folks Darren and Alcatel had some competition as well. Is there one of the prime reasons that you decided to take this this approach to both. Breakfast and lunch and certainly for dinner as well. Well that's certainly part of the reason I mean we're always looking through a group improv where customer base and you know having competitive restaurants or rubble only make you work harder as a business to. Is you know put out of their product but ultimately mean our philosophy is that we want to have. Quality ingredients. In and only bringing quality ingredients for customers Armon news. Little pricier than you know some of the average freshman news but the quality of the product is significantly better. There's a lot of I answered you go ahead. We have all of our all of our state Serb prime we bring him in whole point we cut them ourselves we trim them. You know say whether fish not a birth this fish is frozen. It all comes in hole long and we trim and cut Alder. Fish fresh and it now oversees the freezer. Are you can really taste the difference I think in a situation like that and you know the other thing too I notice many of your menu items have some have a bit of a healthy and two at ware that's consideration. For what you've decided to put on the menu do you find that people are opting for those healthier choices Maher mar. Actually Brett I mean I think that's the trend I think more and more people are trying to take better care of themselves and therefore looking for. Menus that offer healthier. Choices. You know I mean there's still some out choices that are menu that. Mean happy Telerate friendly but. Majority government users. A lot of very flavorful dishes that. You know that that are high in calories. You know the other thing I noticed huge amount watching the restaurant scene here nationally internationally it was in Europe I'll last month and even daring noticed that there are many other options for people who have diets sensitivities. Certainly you see that. GF symbol everywhere it seems the gluten free options are available in your place is well and and I know that dad if somebody is begin or vegetarian is that an issue are you seeing in general. The trend where so many options are available for people with diet sensitivities. Yeah it's a it's I think it's very difficult thing to decide many of these days that. Can satisfy a you know anybody that might walk in the door as you mentioned boot for usability thing right now and they're not allergies. Deacons vegetarians in to accommodate everybody. Is is critical to offer but it's certainly can be done and there's a number of the vast number of archer entries. Offerings are gluten free. If they're not in many cases they can be a wintry week in which we carry. We have a gluten free. Pizza crust that we can offer we have free breads as wells who preposterous so. You know you just there's a lot of folks out there that there are more sensitive to gluten these days and making different choices so we can go to try and. Absolutely. It's a competitive marketplace after Bernard Kouchner martek you're Jim Carroll who is the GM and the owner of dean has the well known restaurant. I know Washington street and Alcatel if you guarantee country I don't miss it it's a beautiful restaurant to weren't. You know when you walking your place chairman it's really striking to see the line wall to see that this year's you know that this decor is quite Jack impressive. You expanded what about three years Gary ever driver wine cellar dining room as well. Yes that's correct we did we expand a few years ago and it's back to square footage as well as he. And it allowed us to. Have another whole basement it and which we. Sectioned off a portion of it for proper winds storage climate control went storage and then we've built the truly cool private dining room off or wind solar that. Can be rented out for her private parties are gatherings of any kind of up to about twenty people little accommodate and its. It's been going very very well over. Yes I think agreed idea sir if you want some privacy Easter morning hand the the ambiance of dean has that's the way to do nice post. Heuer who over and this is it may be our gross night our show our our. May be a small celebration perhaps an anniversary for a couple well what have you seen lately. All the above but it is funny you mention a girl let out of it happens to be that. And we have booked a doubt a significant number of times for bachelorette parties downer. L look at bill seems to attract a lot of bachelorette parties as a sort of a destination overnight. You know get away and I and so we have booked a private room for a number of Bozeman but it can be used for any anything can be use that as well get. You know seven couples together and go out and have some fun in have a have a quote private dining experiences that can be just suppose that. Yeah it's a great option they have and how does it work in terms of the menu you just stare reduce their functions order off of your regular manual errors or special menu. 90% of the time people prefer just order off the menu but we. If we have enough time we can do special menus for you we can do limited menu we can do by of course men is there's lots of quote flexibility there. So. You know we can do it however you want most people what is so good preferred to just. Offer the impairment to our guests. You know you got me thinking this to be agree cannon made winter getaway with a group Acropolis it's about an hour south of buffalo its not that far. And it's a fun thing to do ran into some lovely community to walk around and right I used to be a downhill skier bats are a couple of Perry accidents if and unfortunately stopped me from skiing but I still enjoy you know being outdoors and dad taking him.

Let's belly up to the Chris your movement are you participating in manner they. Items that people tend to order more and more as people become more educated about Kraft cocktails. Yes no question that that that is a movement it's a trend and it's not going away and it's something that we pay attention to social. Our wireless is constantly evolving in. When we get into the ski season that's what it it'll probably be at its peak in terms of the number of different bottles that offer to guests will be somewhere in the neighborhood. Of course probably 350 bottles. So it's there's something on there for everybody and you know we put a lot of time in restrictions to make sure every vote once for yes. This grades are you to you do some of the chasing yourself before you you determine oil stark. I actually do a lot of pacing the minute work with a number of different vendors in. So. You know they there's enough restaurants in town where they come down and take some number different winds and taking my and so on a weekly basis. Nice nice some and is there a benefit of the job bother opening of its I find but it's usually. Are a lot of responsibility because you don't want to spend money on something that wants Alan everybody is a different talents are I think it's a bit of a challenge sometimes you know what's going to sell. It is it can't be absolutely I mean. It just kind of have to trust with try to sell it and trust that you know what your customers want and you know maybe not by too heavy until you know for sure.

A twenty mile radius from the gallery Amal although we do have clients and Alec it till we go into Wilson for some clients Ian we do travel sometimes into Rochester. Anything out of it twenty mile service radius would involve a travel fee a small travel a feat but are willing to go to those areas well let me to. I folks it is well worth it because I had a disaster in my home and it was funny because down I had just banana shall spring or summer. And I remember I was we have an area where we watched TV and easy you know I have a couple of TV Trace that happened in the you're eating dinner. And if you know me you know I pretty hot sauce and everything's had a big fresh bottle hats awesome coverage of two breaking our panel and retire. Break or is the operative word. Because some of the hot spots slipped out of my hand and it made it clean cot at I tried to do get a nine chanted down later this week. Broken in half and there is orange red hot shots all over my carpet and the living room. It was such a mass and it was just a huge amount of it because the super and you now.

And the gentleman who came in such a professionally it was so nice and neat to cure the problem. If you look at their care for it the next day you remember now iris is just orange mass. Attorney for hours sooner. You must hear story after story after story about disasters think in somebody's home. We deal we do we have people calling him panic king asking what to do you know am. A lot of them are pet accidents that certainly mustard we had all kinds of difference bills and ink cartridges things like that might people's call. And that they asked am advice we give to people in we're lucky that they call it as you did when they spill it in the AC what do I do instead of trying different Starbucks products. So were always willing to give advice where where in feast with page managing Nat all the time an answering people's questions. We don't want you to try to use several product cement columns because it really makes it difficult to remove it sometimes is possible. Yeah I was tape probably makes the situation worse it does you cannot attack what's weirdest thing you've ever heard that somebody spilled there you know what's the weirdest senior season. Boy we hear new stories every day I am not even care what the weirdest one is we're just when you think you've heard it all. You know people have just. Am freak accident he an hour we get quite a few calls from elderly people that Aaron blood donors you know cut themselves and they you know. The amount of blood that comes out can be real big massing can be a challenge to remove. It's going to be dangerous to land how cancer dear folks. Wear protective gear of course I'm sure that they Wear gloves and volleys are telling us that they take care of themselves as well I had always thought about it and they are repaired. It also when we do things like that we have to come back and we have to decontaminate dollar equipment so we are back and have a strenuous screening process to make sure that our equipment is cleaned properly for the next call cell and then it's same vein Janet what do you do in terms of ecological health do you use products that are green has had a big concern our days we do we use safe products we have elegy. Free from products that we can use. He and to the products that we use their theory safe they our am not only safer cleans but we also about a technicians that are using an Hannity to day basis we want them to be healthy also sell. It's a win win the product suite to choose ahem who again we have to make sure at the thickening give escape cleaning results but we also want to make sure equally so that they say. Well and you do things that help keep those carpet cleaner for example using neutralizing rants. It eliminates the residues. And also a soft and water and difference very makes a big difference the softened water. Gives their products that we used better cleaning ability so we can use the last product again going back tier opening statement. And men in neutralizing product that we used term machines eliminates the residue that so many people worry about. They'll call on the sage in my carpet ski cleaner. It into the get dirty faster when I have a look and and if they're not cleaned properly yes they will. People are noticing when they red rug doctors or use home machines that they get dirty so much quicker announced so clean every couple months. And with a good neutralizing in the equipment in the products that we use you'll see your carpet state cleaner a lot munger. It just isn't worth it to during your Saturn my opinion because I remember doing an over the years and she liked that harper was Brett. And it seemed like for days now Ernest gross when it's wet blanket and who knows what kind of bacteria is forming. What you say is that average drying time now done. About four hours. And I you know going back to your point over 24 hours you run the risk the multnomah does start to grow so we worry about the did health. Health effects of the products that we used but sure what people don't realize is they're really creating more health issues by by keeping their carpets well outline. People with allergies and asthma it's feeling unsafe to leave them like that. So many things you don't think of off the top at those are great points returning Madonna Scalfaro.
