Marcel’s Posts High-Roller Receipt on Its Facebook Page
The restaurant celebrates big cellar sales, and its $10k tip, in a very public way.
Update (June 8): Marcel’s has removed the image from its Facebook page.
Apparently on June 1, the restaurant sold guests at table 53 an impressive $32,800 worth of food and drink (with tip), including bottles of 1982 Pomerol, the notoriously expensive Bordeaux wine Petit Cheval, and a bunch of tasting menus. Oh, and one $18 arugula salad.
A good night, indeed. It all added up to a fat $10,000 tip for Marcel’s staffers. But what do you think about the etiquette of a restaurant posting a customer’s receipt on its Facebook page?
