What’s the general “tip amount” that give restaurant servers? As generous as it may be, Jim Carrey out-tipped us all this weekend by leaving a waitress a $225 tip after enjoying a meal at Chester restaurant at in New York City’s Meatpacking District. REALLY enjoyed, it would seem.
Jim and his friends ordered ordered sparkling water, a bottle of pinot noir wine, lemon chicken and a quinoa dish from the menu.
The bill came to $151. Jim Carrey tipped $225.
And he’s not the only celeb that’;s gone above and beyond the standard 15%. Kim Kardashian West left a $300 bonus when she ate a $200 lunch in New Orleans last summer, while Amy Schumer left a $500 tip for a student working at Peter’s Clam Bar in Long Island, New York, despite her bill only coming to $49 last year.
What amount do you generally leave for a tip at a restaurant — the standard 15%? (More and more restaurants are offering 20-plus% as options on credit and debit machines). What about TAKE-OUT service? Do you think take-out meals require the same tip?
