“I am not aware of any evidence to support the theory that professional servers are a subclass of humanity who can only do a good job if “incentivized” by tips, like monkeys dancing for peanuts.”
Coi’s Daniel Patterson chats with The Price Hike
about the debate over tipping and about how he’s now paying his more.
So Here’s the Good Deal, My Fellow Bad Dealers: Benu’s Corey Lee (two Michelin stars), Meadowood’s Christopher Kostow (three Michelin stars) and others will join Daniel Patterson at his (two Michelin-starred) Coi for Hurricane Sandy benefit dinner on December 3rd.
The price is $250 per person, all inclusive, for seven-courses plus wine.
Here’s what’s even cooler: 100% of the receipts (not just the revenues) will go toward helping rebuilding Governor, as well as toward Occupy Sandy and The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York (for hurricane relief). So you’ll be eating food from some of San Francisco’s best chefs and you’ll be helping out those hurt by Sandy.
Ain’t no two ways about this. We have ourselves a GOOD DEAL.
DEAR ZAGAT! Your website says COI costs $105. But we have some information that kinda sorta contradicts that claim. Check this out:
COI actually costs $165, if our interview with the restaurant’s chef is to be believed. However, COI did charge $155 in 2011, or $145 earlier that year, or $125 in 2009, or $115 in 2008.
In fact, if our research is accurate, the last time we saw COI’s menu at $105 was back in 2006, when George W. Bush was still our president, and when Martin Scorcese hadn’t yet won an Oscar for Best Director.
Probably a good time to update your menu, non?
Also, congrats to Scorcese for finally winning that Oscar in 2007. The Departed totally rocked.
