Best of Boston

2004 Best Waiter

David Gethman, Radius

Memorable, first-rate wine and dining service isn’t just about memorizing the rules of etiquette, but also reading the mood and needs of the table you’re serving. David Gethman at Radius has mastered this skill. He knows just when to approach a table and when to be invisible. He knows when to steer customers toward a wine that will better complement their meal (and not his bottom line). In effect, Gethman actually makes the food at Radius taste better. Imagine that.
