dining room sticky fingered guests and the patrons who like to pilfer out-of-plain sight from the bathrooms.
The dining room thieves are probably the most adventurous although
there was one daring bathroom thief whose story was told by Chef/Owner

Prosperi responded to my inquiry, “The best story I ever heard was a
restaurant in Providence, Rhode Island. A guest came to the restaurant
in the middle of a packed Saturday night with a solid plan. He packed a
bag of tools and some spare parts, and then headed to the restroom.
During full dinner service, while pretending to repair the sink, he
carefully removed the faucet, placed it in a tool box and replaced it
with a cheaper Home Depot version. Then he walked out the door.”
