Huether didn't work out because of unrealistic expectations, on both 
sides I expect. On our side, that we would order more, and get good 
service (which all but meant a dedicated waitress). On their side by not 
setting amount expectations to us up front, expecting the dedicated 
waitress would bring in amounts desired (contradicting with getting 
service at all), and most of all ... changing the undefined and 
uncommunicated rules on us after the fact.

They wanted more, we couldn't give it to them, they pushed us out into 
unsuitable space for a meeting, and we gave up on them in disgust.

But, in the end, Huether bought us time to figure things out after the 
loss of 43 Queen St. For which I'm grateful.

Along the way, we found a new home, and established a backup location in 
a pinch.

Paul's fault? Nonsense.

C'est la vie.
