Being in the hospitality business (on the business to business side), I was curious to know if Danny's views of the restaurant business would be applicable to a business to business setting. It is absolutely applicable! You will learn so much from this book about how to put your employees and customers first, how to build a grow a sustainable business for the long term, and maybe most importantly, how to build a business based on excellence without compromise. The only problem with this book is that it will also make you hungry! Danny's passion for food gets you not only excited about your business, but makes you start looking for a better place to eat dinner, no matter what city you live in!

The only one of his restaurants I have eaten at is Blue Smoke which I must say is very good. The staff is in fact quite hospitable but not necessarily more so than some other places. That said he outlines the importance of each group 1. Employees 2. Customers 3. Community 4. Suppliers 5. Investors in that order. He is wildly successful and he is doing the right thing. As my title says if more CEO's acted this way the world would be in a much better state. As for the read, it's incredibly easy to get through and quite enlightening although somewhat obvious. Do the right thing.

This book was required reading for class but I pleasantly took a liking to it. I left it on my desk at work and 2 other co-workers have asked for it when I am done. If you love hospitality or food service, this is a really good read!!

This book affirms all the reasons i became a part of the hospitality industry! it pulls at my heart strings and reminds me of childhood memories "fly fishing and how Texans dont put bbq sauce on brisket"! Fantastic!!!

This book and what Danny Meyer has modeled in his own business can be applied to most businesses. I especially believe in having engaged employees (and owners) that love what they are doing. This book is insightful on how to do that.

Thank you Delta for covering Danny Meyer in your December in flight magazine.  In the process of changing industries to become a Chief Experience Officer, "Setting the Table" was exactly what I needed.  Danny's journey and insight has gone a long way toward getting me off to a great start in my new role.
