Please note- July 4th-8th we will be CLOSED. We will reopen for dinner on Friday July 9th at 5pm. With the past year's craziness we've decided it's time to take a much needed family vacation together. The only way we could actually get Sid out of here was to force him to CLOSE the restaurant for a couple day vactation HAHA! We hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!

WARNING This is going to be a bit of a rant but I’m at the end of my rope here and feel like venting. As a small business owner I try to never talk politics, hot button issues or about things that can create really heated and strong opinions on our business page because my customers come from all sides of the issues but this is getting absolutely ridiculous.

When COVID-19 started the first hit and some of the hardest hit businesses included the restaurants which were forced to close their dining rooms to customers and switch to to-go only models which is not sustainable. Due to this the restaurant industry laid off millions of workers in the United States because of shut down orders knowing that the added $600 weekly benefit to unemployment would be more than to-go tips or an empty dining room could provide for their employees. La Bistro however DID NOT lay anyone off! We gave each employee the choice to work with us and do to-go each night and we would give them their full check each week or they could opt to take unemployment.

Now to the rant- The employees that choose unemployment and the $600 benefit over working have ridden that ride this past year to the end of the line and we (And the restaurant industry as a whole) find ourselves in a huge labor shortage. We need people to work! It’s as simple as that! I’m so thankful the unemployment bonus is ending on the 26th of June because we need to get back to work and we need people to fill positions! The entire workforce is hiring, you can throw a rock in any direction and find a job right now!

What’s wrong though is that I have been posting positions, scheduling interviews and having ZERO luck with applicants thus far. NO ONE WANTS TO ACTUALLY WORK! THEY JUST WANT TO SEND OUT A FEW APPLICATIONS WITH EASY CLICKS ONLINE AND WASTE TIME. I have gone as far as offering a $1000 welcome bonus to get new hires in the door and from this I received 14 applications. You read that right…. from the posts offering a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR WELCOME BONUS….14 applications!!

Guess how many showed up for their interview? NOT A SINGLE ONE!! Not a single person we scheduled to come in and meet with us walked through the doors. NOT. A. ONE.

I wish that was a joke but it’s not. Not a single person with $1000 on the line walked through the door. That’s how lazy this job market has gotten. Do you have any idea how frustrating that is?!?! People keep saying the want a “Living wage” but people don’t want to seize opportunity to obtain it.

First it was covid shutting us down, then it was the $600 and $300 weekly benefit keeping workers from coming through the doors for interviews and now it’s switching to a “Living wage” argument which in my opinion only applied to fast food burger shacks not a fine dining restaurant like La Bistro. Our staff supports their families, pays house payments, car payments and takes vacations with their wages. This is their career and it’s a career that has raised children and fed families for a very long time. Our full time employees have been with us for 10+ years!

We are at our wits end with this….. We have had discussions about closing half the restaurant until the labor shortage comes to an end, offering a $1000 welcome bonus, paying servers $7.25 an hour plus tips (Standard is $2.15 in the restaurant industry) and even going as far as paying $40,000 a year and going to a “No tipping restaurant” like in Europe.

As a small business owner who is offering and willing to pay a real wage, begging for employees, willing to train them and still not getting applicants through the door what are we supposed to do?!?!

Sorry for the rant… this is just very frustrating and we are having a great deal of trouble solving the problem.

If you know of someone looking for a job we are hiring servers. Please send them our way! Open interviews daily 5-6pm just walk in and ask for Sid or Jason. 722 Grapevine Highway Hurst, Texas 76054 817-281-9333

These are some of the most uniquely flavored cuts around!! We're one of only a handful of restaurants with an in house program farm to table.

Don't miss this weekends special! 18oz 180 DAY in house dry-aged ribeye served with grilled asparagus, squash, zucchini and roasted baby potatoes.

So sorry to our neighbors. Covid is taking its toll on everyone. (When people say "Shop local" it really matters please remember that and try to if you can. It's not a CEO bonus or private jet you are paying for it's a little girl's dance classes and a families electric bill.) Apple Annie's and La Bistro have been neighbors for more than 20 years and the cleaners just down from us for even longer. So sad to see them go. We wish you guys the best!! So sorry our hearts go out to you.

I know this is a little off topic for our family restaurant but we consider our customers our extended family (Especially since many of you have been visiting since the 80's at the very beginning.. thank you for that we really appreciate it!!)

Question- If anyone happens to be in the ranching business or own/operate a ranch in Texas please reach out and send a private message to us. Have a couple of questions if you have a minute of your time to spare. Thanks in advance!

An Open Letter to Governor Abbott

While we are not a 51% establishment many of our friends are in the bar business and their businesses, families and employees are suffering a great deal. So many small businesses have already closed or will close in the coming weeks and months. (I'm not a fan of online political arguments I ask that you please do not post any comments to gas light) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATjzQGy9Fxc&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR01kukeThd0ixNwZqjZRDDr3fkwFAuBJlyRxrVVgHzQOg6EJtRzwy49ut4

*Discounted gift cards*

Few announcements regarding gift cards. It's a little long but please read if you purchased a gift card because there is important information in this message just as there was in the original promotion.

1. First....If you purchased a gift card at half off to help us help our employees... THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!! It is much appreciated and we sincerely hope you enjoy your meal with us! We're going to do everything we can to make sure you have a wonderful time each time you come visit us! And please think of the servers when you receive your discount! They are struggling with dining being down at the moment due to Covid-19 just as everyone is in the restaurant industry.

2. If you purchased a gift card and DID NOT receive half off you need to email [email protected] with the following: date, time, gift card code and name on the credit card used so that I can find it in the list and attempt to fix it for you if you purchased it before the half off code expired.

3. I have gotten a few nasty emails from people because they made a mistake when checking out and are upset with me because they were charged full price for the gift card. It was CLEARLY stated on the announcement that it ended on July 17th and there was a redemption code, "SHOPSMALL" you needed to enter when checking out. If you forgot to do that I'm sorry but it's not my mistake and I do not deserve to be spoken to in that way. I'll happily do what I can to research your order, correct it and make you a happy customer but rudely contacting us is not warranted.

4. If you made a purchase on July 14th, 15th, 16th or even EARLY on the 17th (Even though the code expired and was not working) I will honor the 50% discount. If you made a purchase on the 18th, 19th, 20th or even today the 21st I'm truly sorry but the promotion has expired there's nothing that we can do.

5. We did this to help our employees and in doing so we are taking quite a loss on each gift card (50% to be exact, restaurants do not operate at 50% margins, not even close!) which is the reason for the flash sale and short window to purchase the gift cards. If we allowed it to go on for days or weeks we would sell more than we can afford to during Covid-19.

We really do truly thank you all for purchasing them, saving some money in the process and helping us to help our employees. We are so very thankful but please understand... this was a quick flash sale with an expiration and required you to enter a code at checkout. You have to do those things to get the benefits. If you did not you did not receive them. That's why. Not because there is a hidden catch etc.

I have had someone email upset that we did not honor the discount 4 days after it expired and tell me that they would never return?!? I would not go to Best-Buy on Black Friday and demand a half off TV that was advertised in the paper because I was number 100 in line when they only had 2 to sell and then proceed to berate the manager. That's not right. I'm sorry but it's not. We're a small business trying to support ourselves, our employees and their families and we did something to show our gratitude to our customers and give them a show of thanks and help our employees in the process. All while taking a loss as the owners to help our employees feed their families.

Sorry for the long rant this just turned into a stressful situation trying to do something unique that would help our employees and give our customers a giant benefit at the same time. The nasty emails got to me today.....

A screen shot of the promotion is attached below for reference.

I am a solo entertainer playing Jazz Standards – vocals/sax on the best songs from the 20's to the 60's. Songs from Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme' and many more. The music is great for dinning rooms, anniversary parties, Bridal party dinners, etc. I use a small sound system to avoid taking a large area for setup. I have extremely reasonable rates . I currently PLAY EVERY FRIDAY AT CAFE MEDI IN KELLER so I am seeking any other day of the week. Contact info: cell phone: 817-983-1735 email [email protected] Thank you for your time Bill Haden
