Restaurant Owner In Bishop Treats His Customers With Respect Through His Chairs

Below are some pretty Yosemite photos, which I took this afternoon after a full morning of biking 17 miles all up the mountain outside Bishop (about 60 miles south of Yosemite).

But today's highlight was a 4:30 p.m. visit to the Petite Pantry restaurant on the outskirts of Bishop, based on a recommendation by Bruce the motel owner.

It's the tale of the restaurant chairs.

Besides serving a tasty sauteed carnitas dish with a scrumptious beef and vegetable soup and kickass salsa, owner Jay Jimenez has only reclining cushion office chairs at the restaurant on US 395. Here's Jay's son posing with the chairs.

Jay came up with the office chair idea because he has customers who use wheelchairs, so he decided to have a worker meet the wheelchair customer out in the parking lot with the rolling office chair and then wheel them in for a meal.

And to make the customer feel like the wheelchair is no issue, Jay has ALL the customers sit in the black, cushion office chairs.

And that, my friends, is my Sierras story of the day.
