Easy there, slobs. In a Gothamist Q&A, Pierre Schaedelin points to one way Benoit has been cutting back: “We've cut costs with staff here, unfortunately, we had to let got [sic] of a few people. And small things too, like we try to use only linens we have to — no unnecessary dirtying and washing.” So, don’t slosh that wine all over the place! Oh, and another thing — wash your hands before and after you touch the menu. As the one and only John Tesh points out in a rather icky Tweet, that never gets cleaned at all.
