The Changing Tipping Culture

This presentation will address the changing culture of tipping at various restaurants in SF and other cities. San Francisco restaurants including Bar Agricole and Tru Normand, along with East Bay restaurants Camino, Comal, and Duende, are abolishing tips in favor of a mandatory 20 percent service charge. Aster is opting to eliminate tips and a service charge altogether, with a plan to raise meal prices. Alimento, a Silver Lake restaurant, is likely the first in the nation to institute a separate line on all checks for discretionary gratuity for the back-of-the-house (kitchen) staff.
