Giselle Halwani’s success has caused other prominent restaurants to hire high-powered managers to oversee day-to-day operations, and most have seen positive results. Giselle has helped make her restaurant even better than what it was, which is impressive. At the time, the only job experience she had was as a waitress at the neighborhood Italian deli near where she lived. She has quickly moved up to head waiter, which afforded her more influence over the overall service experience at the restaurant, then eventually she became the manager, which makes most of the restaurant’s daily operations her responsibility. She excelled so thoroughly at the Italian deli that the owners had to convince her father to let her work there full time. When she arrived in Boston, one of the first places she looked for a job at was also one of the best restaurants in Boston. The owners admit that they were unsure of her experience, but they hired her after what they called a “fantastic interview” and she never looked back.
Giselle Halwani has gained more influence in the foodie world since she became the manager of one of the best restaurants in her adopted home, Boston. She moved there from her family home in Brooklyn shortly after she graduated high school. Now her influence is felt throughout the restaurant, from the servers to the hostess to the waiters and even the cooks. Food critics are beginning to take notice of Giselle’s changes she has made at the restaurant, which had been suffering from a service problem before she came into the fold.
