Bar Bambino's Napkin Ties, The French Laundry's Clothespins

New, 11 comments

Welcome to Eater's latest feature, Shit People Steal, in which we ask restaurateurs what items in their restaurant have been (or are frequently) stolen.

Bar%20Bambino%20Napkin%20ties.jpgThis week's edition is a twofer, beginning with former Bar Bambino beverage manager Becky Pezzullo, who writes in about the constantly disappearing leather napkin ties at the popular 16th St. Italian joint:

"When I was there we had to replace at least 20 a week, and Ryan [Robles, the manager] used to see them on wrists all over the Castro." Robles adds, "I cannot even tell how many times I see them on the wrists of people (mainly men). Can't get enough of the leather I guess. I bet you they're even more popular during the week leading up to Folsom Street Fair. Kidding....kinda. Anyways, people love this shit!"
