The American style is the most common style of restaurant service when customers first choose options from a menu and entrees are then cooked and plated in the kitchen before being served. Servers should use descriptive adjectives when explaining menu items to patrons and have extensive knowledge of different flavors found on the menu.

And while you are experiencing the lunch menu with great delight, the stuff of Bistro 399 are making preparations for the dinner service while enjoying the taste and aroma of a freshly cooked coffee, pre-shift meeting for dinner service. That’s how they do it everything with perfection and that’s how they re-do the preparations for the service as if the day has restarted all over again. It’s not the beaver day but it’s always for a better day.
Oh, yes, it’s half of the day, but the best is yet to come.
You indulged in some exquisite lunch dishes but the dinner menu items are more tempting than you can imagine.
Every station is on place; salad, pasta, meat, seafood, everything is set for the show. Also, bartender Viki is checking up the stock of beverages and alcohol, and all the tiny cute details for your favorite drink, such as glasses, straws, fruits for cocktails/beer, olives, mint, ice etc.
Vane, the waiter, has set the dining area; spotless tables and chairs, shiningly washed plates for starters, clean cutlery, neat napkin, wiped off salt and pepper shakers, elegant and neat.
It’s 5pm, dinner is being served.
Distinguished guests get their favorite table, the waiter bursts in and out of the kitchen ready to treat the guests with delicious food. Chef Dejan is getting orders for a Shepard Salad, then Mediterranean mix grill, while Chef Zharko has already finished with Bistro shrimp and started to cook seafood ravioli, then pasta Primavera. Meal over a meal, everything happens so fast. Within a minute the order can be served to the table.
Everyone at Bistro 399 wants their guests to be full of mirth and fond memories, no matter what time of the day.
10 pm – Last meal served for the day
Late night guests enjoy their dinner over a smooth conversation. Subtle atmosphere, gentle music, but loud satisfying sounds for getting the perfect match of “What do I want to eat” and “What I got for dinner”. Slow motion in every move over the plate, blinking with approval, nodding with merit, floating thought in the air “Excellent, Bistro 399”.
Somewhere around 11 pm.
Family meal when all staff members are feasted with good bites and positive mood about the successful day, or making remarks about some unusual and/or awkward situation where lesson should be learned. Anything is possible, but every team member at Bistro has given 100% to get your smile for the next meal there, hopefully tomorrow.
This kind of end makes a better start for the next day, for more familiar faces stepping in Bistro 399, for more creative mix of tasteful meals, for enormous smiles and laughs, for memorable times with good friends and family, and that’s what keeps us going on.
It’s a new dawn,
it’s a new day,
It’s our life in Bistro 399
And we are feeling good.
