For Cinco de Mayo this year, the CulinArt team at Culinart at Cadwalader, Wickersham and Taft LLP, a New York law firm, wanted to put a Mexican spin on a classic ceviche, says Ryan Deutsch, executive chef for CulinArt at Culinart. “I used tomatillos, cilantro, lime juice, lemon juice and some Corona beer to give it a little different flavor,” Deutsch says. “I also put some ketchup in there to give it a nice red color.” The dish was served in 2-ounce martini shooters, which Carlos Rivera, director of dining services with CulinArt, says were inspired by attending a workshop at the 2010 MenuDirections conference in Miami. “I’m still in touch with the chef at The Doral [who gave a presentation on catering at the conference],” Rivera says. “I was so excited by the shooters he showed us that day. These shooters have worked so well, especially when serving this amount of shrimp. People usually aren’t going to take more than one shooter.”

Ingredients

2 lb. 51/60 shrimp, tails removed
3 limes, juiced
2 lemons, juiced
3 fresh tomatillos
1 medium red onion, small dice
2 oz. chopped cilantro
4 tbsp. ketchup
12 oz. Corona beer
1 medium cucumber, small dice
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded, finely diced
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

Steps

1. Place shrimp in bowl and marinate with lime and lemon juice. Cover and let sit under refrigeration for 1 hour, or until shrimp is opaque and slightly firm.

2. Add remaining ingredients to shrimp and let marinate for 1 hour under refrigeration.

The reality is that some people don’t like change. But as long as you partner with employees, there shouldn’t be major staff fallout.

It can be tricky to find the balance between listening to your team’s point of view on the changes and avoiding giving your power away. You may accept many or few recommendations, but you need to be able to explain your decisions. Regular department meetings to complete that circle of communication take more time, but it’s more efficient than doing damage control after the fact.

Some Washington, D.C., foodservice operators may soon be required to provide staff with paid leave, as the city council on Tuesday passed one of the most extensive paid leave plans in the nation.

Barring a veto by Mayor Muriel Bowser, the measure mandates that all private sector employers in the district offer workers eight weeks of parental time off and six weeks to care for a sick relative.

While operators will not directly compensate workers—who will be paid 90% of their wages through a government-run insurance program—they will be hit with a 0.62% increase to employer...
