Veronica never intended to become the maitre d’ at Sutro’s. She originally took a waitress job at Bistro, the casual-dining restaurant, as a way to earn some money while she finished high school. She thought it was a little more respectable than fast food places, and it paid better as well. To her surprise, she discovered she really liked the job, and Cliff House. She worked her way up to hostess at Bistro, then moved over to Sutro’s, where she’s now maitre d’. Along the way, she learned enough history about the place that she also sometimes leads tours, and creates the text for placards, pamphlets, and other visitor documentation. She’s currently in her senior year at SFSU, where she’s completing a Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management degree. She intends to continue working for Sutro’s after graduation, and possibly celebrate her 21st birthday there as well.
