Best of New York 2007 • Fun

Best Bartenders and Party Staff

  • Tempositions Eden Hospitality

    111 Broadway; 212-689-2444

    When a party is fabulous enough for hired help, you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen teaching an NYU student how to make a martini or a plate of appetizers. All of Tempositions’s waiters have at least two years’ experience; several have advanced training in culinary and hospitality programs. Waiters, bartenders, and chefs come dressed to order, in gear from black T-shirts to tuxes, starting at $14 per hour for cleanup help and $16.95 an hour for prep (minimum is five hours). Last-minute requests can be accommodated—the agency has provided ten waiters for a party in only two hours.
