Sara Peterson

Manager at Staple & Fancy

Sara graduated with a BFA in Theater from Cornish College of the Arts—so naturally she began to wait tables! She has found it to be more rewarding than she ever expected; and really enjoys the community within the industry. From Manager at Mkt. to now Manager at Staple & Fancy and Marine Hardware, Sara definitely plays a leading role at ESR.

Hometown

Kalama, Washington. (It's a Twilight location!)

First Restaurant Job

Red Lobster. I never want to see another cheddar bay biscuit again.

Last Restaurant Job

Betty Restaurant

Alternate Universe Career

A secret agent!

Favorite Late Night Snack

Mac and Cheese.

Best Meal Ever

At Spur, before it closed. My friends Sam and Erin and I had almost everything on the menu-food and cocktail related. Plus there was wine. It was the perfect storm of spot-on food, service, drinks, and company. Also pretty much every meal I have had at Spinasse. I love the food and the staff there.

After Work Hangout

Single Shot, Nacho Borracho, or my couch.

Secret Ingredient

Garlic, garlic, garlic! Sorry, friends.

Restaurant Pet Peeve

When tables don't acknowledge their server. We don't need to be best friends, but we are here to make your experience the best it can be. Give me an inch, and I'll give you a mile.

What do you love about Seattle?

Being able to look outside and be reminded of how beautiful our world is.

Favorite Place In The World

Drinking rose on the beach with my friends.

What's On The DVR?

Anything crime related.

What's On The iPod?

Hamilton. It's pretty much the best thing I have ever heard.

Favorite Movie Quote

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.

What Have You Learned?

If it's not fun, it's not worth it.
