My search for the best pizza in New York continues….
I wouldn’t necessarily think that a pizza review is the place to address the discussion of no tipping in New York City restaurants. But Marta is no ordinary pizza place. It’s one of Danny Meyer’s casual fine dining restaurants (I know that sounds oxymoronic but that’s where we are) and that means the servers are no longer accepting tips. The gratuity is included in the price.
The main reason for this is that it’s much less confusing for the diner to have to figure out the math of 20%. And more importantly, it helps even the paying field and pay the kitchen staff a better liveable wage.
I’m not going to get too far into this, but only speak on my first experience dining at a no-tip establishment. And one from the hospitality king Danny Meyer no less.
I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…
