The sushi prep employee. He is the base for all the sushi bar menu and keeps the sushi chefs supplied and efficient.

The dishwasher! There are not enough plates, glasses, silverware, or pans to go around when you are busy. Without the dish pit crew we are in deep doo-doo -- you can't turn the tables. In this industry, we're all dishwashers. When they show up, we all move up -- the dish pit rules!

The prep cook! He or she is responsible for all the mise en place that goes into a great dish and rarely gets to see the finished plate.

Definitely the dishwasher. In most kitchens they have the dirtiest job and usually get paid the least. Without a dishwasher neither the kitchen nor front of the house could function.

This is one of those surveys that helps me make a dining decision.

Anyone NOT picking the dishwasher seems a bit out of touch.

Been in the business 40+ years, its the dishwasher, hands down. Binkley says

it best, always cleaning up other peoples messes, usually cheerfully !

Nice answer from Gregg Troilo. You guys serve him up a nice meatball of a question right over the plate.......And he hits a myopic dribbler right back to the mound:(
