Cedars on 50th and Brooklyn

I was up at Cedars on the corner of 50th and Brooklyn (I hear there are two restaurants by that name in the area). Anyways, a friend of mine was telling me that a few of the waitresses there had complained that the owner of the place kept stealing tips from them. I told my brother about this, he actually heard the same thing from one of his friends who used to be a waitress there. She had told my brother about how the owner even beat his wife in front of the entire waitress staff on one occasion.

I felt like seeing if these tip-stealing stories were true. I talked my family into going to Cedars the other night. We had our meal. As I ate, I watched how the staff busted their asses off. We paid, then tried giving our tip directly to our waitress. She wouldn't accept it. We asked her why not? She really didn't say anything; she just simply wouldn't accept. As we were about to leave, the owner's wife came over and asked us how our meal was. We told her we enjoyed it. Again she asked us the same question, this time I realized what she meant -Hey there, you didn't leave us a tip.

I really don't feel like supporting that business with my patronage anymore. I felt like posting this, just in case any of you go there. I thought you'd like to at least know where your tips were going. That just seems like stealing to me, stealing from both the staff and those who tip them.
