Our own Chef Andrew Gruel of the Slapfish Restaurant Group joins us with another informative “Ask the Chef” segment. He’s in Albuquerque, NM right now opening the 2nd Slapfish there. With the Summer grilling season on the horizon it’s great to have a real working chef in our corner always providing handy and practical advice!
Chef Andrew responds to a vexing tipping question. The issue is whether it’s appropriate to tip on the pre-tax check or the check with the sales tax added on. With the California sales tax now averaging 10 per cent in most areas this makes a difference on the total of the gratuity.
