Canlis on Valet

Dick-Sprinkle.jpgMark Canlis shares the 60-year-old restaurant's decidedly low-tech system for retrieving diners' cars at just the right moment, without taking a ticket or a name. It all started with "valet-parking savant" Dick Sprinkle, and to this day parking cars at Canlis requires a prodigious memory. Valeting cars by memory is all the more impressive, since "Canlis isn't one of those cute little restaurants with eight tables where the owner is also cooking all the food." [MSNBC]
