Remembering Rhode Island's
Good Ol' Days
Thank you including Valle's. My parents used to take us there as a treat for us kids.
It was a big deal to go to Valle's as a kid.This was about as "expensive" as my parents were concerned to go out and eat.We always got the Lobster Saute'.And a creme'd'menth parfait for dessert or Strawberry Shortcake.
I worked there as a busboy in the late 70's early 80s
Vallie's was my first full time job in 1973I was Chef's helper the chef 's name was Aidis (not sure about the spelling)he was from Haiti the manager was a big guy named DennisI'll never forget what he said the day I was hired ..he said "Well we can't pay you much per hour ($1.60) but we can give you plenty of hours" and man did they ever 6:00 a.m.to 6:00 p.m six days a week ..boy the place was busy Mothers day was insane.Before working at Vallie's in Warwick. It was a favorite place to eat on the rare occasion when my parents would take us N.Y. sirloin was always my order Years later I worked as a line cook at the Vallie's in Hallandale Beach Florida
I worked there 1983-84. I rrmember Chef Adis too. Worked 11:00am to 11:00pm. Started out Fry (where you had flour, eggwash, breadcrumb) done by hand, not pre-made like today, broiler, and steamer. I met my exwife there. I miss those days...
I REMEMBER THE COOL LADY WHO LOOKED A LOT LIKE DOLLY PARTON WHO WAS THE MAITRE DE. LEARNED SHE HAS NOW PASSED AWAY
her name was rose landries
My wife's sister worked there in late 70's. We could get a free lobster dinner there but had to pay if we wanted steak
How do you pronounce the name of this restaurant?
Hope my answer helped you Leahb!!! :)
Just like valley's i believe miss!!!
After eating; my Dad would stay in the parking lot to watch the 727 jets land. Loved the heads of lettuce and filet mignon. I too remember Rose the hostess (with the mostess).
