Gles of its beleaguered waitstaffThis keenly observed story also traverses Pauli's ten year evolution from a jaded party hungry rock musician who moonlights as a bartender into a snobbish and pretentious waiter and finally into a polished and sophisticated server who takes his job so seriously that it drives him to the brink of illness Pauli finds himself at first seduced by his famous guests' glamour and self indulgence then accustomed to it and finally appalled by itFor obvious reasons some details and specifics about the real Cricket Room have been cleverly disguised but discerning readers will easily connect the do This is the story of one man's work as a waiter at the Cricket Room in Beverly Hills which I believe is actually the Polo Lounge The stories are real The names of the actors are not changed It's an interesting read but it's also everything I hate about LA and Hollywood His stories of some actors are highly amusing others make me think this guy doesn't have a very good read on character And he seems like a little bit of a jerk at times One thing is for sure though he loves his job and takes it very seriously In the end the restaurant he loved and served so well becomes too corporate losing a bit of its humanity eventually causing him to blow up and leave His memories are fond and the stories are fun to read but this should have been edited down to be half its size

Waiter to the Rich and ShamelessRkers around the globe only a tiny number ever ascend to a top level position at a world renowned restaurant catering to iconic celebrities moguls and politicians As one of those select few Paul Pauli Hartford is the first waiter to open the door into a cloistered coveted world of money fame bad behavior and intrigue He peels back the veneer of civility and culture at the nation's most preeminent celebrity hangout the Cricket Room in Beverly Hills California He exposes the epic human foibles of its elite clientele the dining room's corrupt corporate culture its clandestine culinary practices and the heartbreaking strug How do you rate the life of a man I sincerely have no idea This might very well be the first and last autobiography I ever read Should I rate the cussing and the disrespectful descriptions of the famous guests dining at the Cricket Room just because I don't approve Then I would be a total hypocrite When I read fiction I prefer the book to be written in the voice of the character not in the voice of the author Why should I judge a non fiction book differently if that was the real voice of the authorShould I rate the wow factor of the stories presented in the book about the rich and shameless I found out Russell Crowe walks around with a possy and entertains like a king holding court Johnny Depp knows his wine Kate Hudson has a nice ass Colin Farrell tips like an European and Gore Vidal was charming till his last days The children of the Beverly Hills billionaires acted like arrogant entitled pricks and the abandoned ex wives of the rich men of Beverly Hills were absolutely pitiful to read about I did not care for any of these stories but why should I take it out on the book because it didn't meet the level of scandal I was looking for Maybe I'm just weird and too demanding and have read too much strange stuff and have now become jaded What I did enjoy reading about were the author's escapades with Jens Jens the waiter was a gangbanging coke sniffing party craving maniac who could look as neat as a button after a several days of hard partying He was just like that colleague I once had when I was a competing swimmer who could drink the entire night before an important competition then spill his guts by the pool and casually win the gold medal I usually had to take days off to recover after one lost night partying so fk that guy I also enjoyed reading about the passion the author had for his work There is this book called Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Miller that says “A warrior does not give up what he loves he finds the love in what he does” and “It doesn’t matter what you do only how well you do it” Paul Hartford seemed to have loved his job at the Cricket Room and took pleasure from doing his job very well and I have nothing but respect for that I found out that reading about the drinks and the fancy dishes prepared for the rich and famous felt exciting to me than the stories inside the Cricket Room If you are a foodie I recommend this book to you 375 stars ishA copy was provided for review via Booktasters NonFiction
