For one patron at a Chicago restaurant, a normal tip was not enough to show his appreciation after a meal Sunday night.
Identified only as “Mike, who was visiting from Seattle,” Boka restaurant announced Monday that the delighted customer left a $2,000 tip on a $759 bill.
Boka describes itself as an upscale restaurant serving seasonal American fare. It boasts one Michelin star.
After initially tipping $300 on his bill, he then went to the kitchen to give each of the 17 staffers there $100, the restaurant said.
