Managing partner of Philadelphia’s celebrated Marc Vetri family of restaurants, for over 15 years Jeff Benjamin has helped make the Vetri brand synonymous with quality fine-dining with his impeccable standards, attention to detail, wide range of taste, and strong work ethic. He also supports many philanthropic causes and nonprofit organizations, including Little Smiles and The Great Chef’s Event, which benefits Alex’s Lemonade Stand. In 2008, Benjamin and Vetri created the Vetri Foundation for Children, a charity that focuses on promoting healthy eating and the childhood obesity crisis. Including observations about reserving tables, what your server truly thinks about you, and what it takes to get kicked out, Front of the House is a behind-the-scenes look at the art of exceptional restaurant service.
