Where everyone knows your name

At Rutt's Hawaiian Cafe, one waiter, a Salvadoran, is a vegan who can't eat most of the food on the menu. Another is a prize-winning Latino poet who recently graduated from Venice High School and has applied to Sarah Lawrence. He has written a poem on the men working in the Rutt's kitchen. The owner himself, an Egyptian, was in the pizza business before he bought Rutt's.
