My friend and lawyer, Richard Weltman (who I met through an organization that we are both members of Executive Association of Greater New York) had breakfast today at Salute! on Madison Avenue.
As I walked through the door, I was immediately greeted by the wonderful hostess/manager- Marie Hallas who I had known years ago when she literally ran the breakfast room at the Regency Hotel for years! It was great to see her and what struck me about her over the years was her consistency in greeting people and great customer service. Whether she was talking to someone very famous and powerful or to me, she was the same and made you feel important and that she was happy to have you at her restaurant.
Richard and I had a great breakfast, his firm is in the same building and we are both going to make sure to spread the word about this ‘new’ power breakfast spot. It is all about creating word of mouth advertising through the wonderful connections you make in life.
