The error rate* for American air traffic controllers is around 6.8 errors per million flights, and by law, they are required to retire at age 56 because of the risks their errors pose. Wonder how that compares to this young food traffic controller at Alinea?**
*An air traffic control error is typically when a safe distance is not maintained between two planes or between a plane and a physical object.
**Alinea is a world-class restaurant here in Chicago.
Addendum: This is also quite an example of the division of labor that occurs at high-end restaurants.
