A brief response to the above post about kitchen Life would be Shola's post below:
I'm not going to try and tell you that I have never yelled in a kitchen. I'm not going to tell you that I won't yell in a kitchen. But I will tell you that I have benefited from being yelled at and seeing other being yelled at in the kitchen. That being said all cooks are different and we all respond to things in our own way.

Punch List

Just when you start to see the end of the road you sit down and make a punch list, just like a prep list only if you don't finish the punch list you won't need a prep list.
Items from the Red Hen punch list:
Finish tables
finish Limestone Planter
make Kitchen bar
Lay floor in bathrooms and hallway
Install Kitchen
Install FERP
and so on and so on

202 Market

Thanks to Chad and his gang for squeezing out some fun dishes for us even after we surprised them. Unfortunately Colleen had the camera so no photos. But if you see grain mustard Gnocchi with pulled pork on the menu order it. Also look for Chad to do a dinner with us at Red Hen in the near future. Oh and the Whopper dessert was awesome.
