cover
 n.— «Many restaurants serve twice as many “covers” (that’s diners in kitchen parlance) as they do in a normal shift. That puts an amazing strain on everyone—reservationists, prep cooks, chefs, bartenders, servers—even the people who pour water, clear tables and wash dishes.» —“Dining out on Mother’s Day? Read this first” by Dave Carlson Gainesville Sun (Florida) May 10, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
