The Restaurant industry is so big in one sense  but small in another, in all quality restaurants we tend to know each other. After training for the world skills competition, there was a new opening here in Howth, Ivans Oyster Bar and Grill. The General Manager was Aiden Myler whom I worked for in l'Ecrivain. I must have impressed him with my attitude and skills because he rang me up and told me of the position. He told me about the concept of the restaurant and I liked it. I started 2 months ago and am enjoying it tremendously.
