And that was in large part the work of executive host Brent Michael Kaufman, who has been a fixture at the front door since the eatery opened 17 years ago. "I'm ready for a new chapter," said Kaufman, 56, whose last shift was Saturday night.
...
Many athletes and teams carried Kaufman's contact information (over the years, he's dealt more business cards than a Las Vegas casino) and let him know when they were coming to town. Kaufman - a.k.a. the Table Doctor, for the Internet advice column he wrote on restaurant etiquette - and his wife, Michele, plan to stay in Boston through July before possibly moving to Florida or New York to explore opportunities.

The Charming Accommodator - If you've ever even stuck you head inside Ciao Bella restaurant on Newbury Street, you know Brent Michael Kaufman. Or perhaps more accurately, he knows you. Kaufman, who has 38 years of experience in the font of the house (that is, taking care or customers at restaurants), took his expertise to MIT Friday for the university's 10th annual Charm School program and taught a three-hour class on restaurant etiquette called "Dining Dilemmas. Much of the material in the class is from Kaufman's upcoming book, "The Table Doctor."

A Doctor in the House - Ciao bella has been in business at the same Newbury Street location since July of 1986, and Brent Kaufman, Ciao bella's current host, was on hand the day the popular restaurant opened. A boy born in Brooklyn, Kaufman was a local football star who carried his pads to the University of Rhode Island, earning three football letters and later, a tryout with the New York Giants. Today, he greets football players and other major players that drop into Ciao bella. A hospitality veteran, Kaufman had worked as an assistant cruise director and owned nightclubs in St. Maarten before arriving at Ciao bella. Officially "the executive host," Kaufman sees his role as more of a "table doctor" -- a name he's both trademarked and turned into a Web site. "My job," he says with that everpresent smile, "is to anticipate problems before they arise. But if they do, like any doctor, I'm ready, willing and able to cure whatever it is that is ailing our guests. In a restaurant where President Clinton, Shaquille O'Neal , Pat Riley, Sting, Tony Bennett and Tom Cruise have all dined, the outsider may think that Kaufman puts the needs of celebrities first.

Putting some fiber in fiber optics: The ever-enterprising Brent Michael Kaufman is at it again. The longtime executive host at Ciao bella on Newbury Street has cooked up another idea to get the restaurant aboard the technology bandwagon. Earlier this year, Kaufman launched his Web site-- tabledoctor.com--addressing issues on restaurant protocol and etiquette. Now he's broadening his horizons by tuning in to Williams Communications, an international fiber-optic network, and creating a house specialty of grilled shrimp and scallops, smothered in a spicy puttanesca sauce over pappardelle, noodles measuring 18 inches long by 1.5 inches wide. "We're calling it Williams Broadband Puttanesca Pasta," says Kaufman, voted 1998's best host by Boston Magazine.
