Two signs, one saying, “Make it nice or… make it twice!” and one saying, “Cooking is an art – be an ARTIST,” adorn the back wall of Tempo Presto! a Park Slope sandwich shop. Right now we’re eating a hot and sweet sopresatta w/ provolone, roasted red peppers & black olive tapanade on rosemary focaccia. It’s delicious.
Perhaps if other businesses took the sentiments expressed on the back signs as seriously as these sandwich masters do, dealing with customer service wouldn’t make us so sick to our stomach. — BEN POPKEN
