Celebrity Chef Mario Batali and Partner Agree to Settle Tip Issue With Waiters for $5.25 Million


An issue with the tipping policy at eight of Mario BataliĀ“s NYC Italian-style restaurantes has been settled in court with a settlement of $5.25 million for the waiters.

Current and former waiters at Esca (402 W 43rd Street NYC), Babbo (110 Waverly Place) and six other eateries are to benefit from the largest NYC wage-and-tip suit. About 1,100 employees had tips garnished by the management of the restaurants.

The workers at the restaurants pooled their tips and Batali and partner Bastianich "misappropiated" routinely 4 or 5 percent of the pool.
