"The Restaurant" Reality Show Season 2 in Food Media & Arts Posted May 22, 2004 Rocco obviously has good publicists. He pops up everywhere (except the kitchen!) I think I saw him as a presenter at the Daytime Emmies Show last night. I was just flipping channels, and there he was with the woman from Trading Spaces. Have to take issue, though with the comment about alcohol being the lubricant of the restaurant business. Thank goodness that is not an accepted "standard" anymore. The restaurant chain that I worked for would definitely dismiss an employee for drinking on the job - with a customer or not. Now, after the shift is another story. Yes, many restaurant workers still seem to spend a fair amount of time indulging!I thought it was neat seeing Rocco at CIA, but I also question relevance of Momma getting recognition - think that's more of Rocco's publicity people doing their work.
