A regular patron at the Washington, D.C., restaurant left a $2,000 tip on a $93.23 tab on Monday night.
“I looked and adjusted my glasses; that’s a lot of zeroes,” said owner Christofer Nardelli, on his reaction when first seeing the receipt.
Nardelli said he and Blue 44 Chef James Turner e-mail with the patron periodically. “My chef keeps him updated on when we are going to have the gumbo, he is a huge fan.”
Nardelli said Turner had recently asked the patron about his next visit to make sure a batch is ready. The generous tipper replied he would be stopping by Monday night.
And he did, and brought another diner. “He was excited about the gumbo, they both had it.”
