I bet that's it, he's not declaring any tips, therefore not getting taxed on any CASH tips collected.

His POS would track credit card tips, but the business doesn't get taxed on those. They "pass through", even though they get deposited in his acct. It's not declared as income by the business.

Since the servers don't collect/declare, no paper trail.

Oh, sure, and when looking at the pantry and freezers and so on, the lack of ingredients would make it evident, too. I was thinking of the scenes early in KN episodes where he is served food.

There was one episode recently repeated on BBC America, a soul food place, where Ramsay ordered red velvet cake (baked on site by the mother of the owner). It was the only food he sampled that was good.

That's the only baked dessert I've seen on KN so far, but I haven't seen very many episodes.

Its been months since I've paid tips in actual cash instead of adding it on the CC receipt. So how do you takes those CC tips without leaving a paper trail.

abc changes mind on tips, holds job fair

it looks like abc has changed their mind, and decided to let servers keep their tips from now on.

and they are holding a job fair, in time for the re-launch:
http://ktar.com/22/1635415/Amys-Baki...-hold-job-fair
my question - who's going to show up after the first night?

sure, it has a quriosity, entertainment value, but given the fact that it's the same food and chef, and owners, would you go?

Mr. Scrib's is a pizza place in Phoenix. Not really near ABC, but I guess they seized the opportunity for free publicity. :i

There's an 'e' in salads?

Love the pic. Fortunately for me, I've never had to work in food service but I wouldn't imagine that I would show up in hopes of being hired by these people - well, unless I've been living in a cave for the last six months.

From what I've seen, read, and heard, since the Ramsay episode, I just cannot possibly imagine that things would change with them. Glad they are going to cut loose the tips (assuming that's true - they aren't exactly known for being honest), but I don't see the other customer and employee abuses ending. They don't know better because they don't WANT to know better.

don't think abc would be classified as a french bistro, though.

It looks like he's about to be tackled by the cops, who don't want their picture taken.

Those aren't cops - they are private security hired by the restaurant.

Ah, thanks for the info. I never went too far with French and haven't been there for decades. Maybe she was trying to class the joint up.

I wonder if they were able to make the guy/gal go away. It looks like s/he is out in the street and not on their property.

it would be really funny if mr. scrib's had gotten permission in advance to advertise at the site.

or course, having your mascot accosted on the evening news would also generate free publicity.

The Mr. Scrib mascot in a small way reminds me of the recurring Justin Timberlake spot on SNL. Maybe the mascot should add some music and cool dance moves.

They used bistro in their name so I think that's one of the things they were shooting for.

LOLing at the security guards.

A lot of the talk about the "re-opening" of ABC revolved around security chasing people away.

Amy’s Baking Company owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo are making the best of their nasty and embarrassing appearance on Gordon Ramsay‘s Kitchen Nightmares by capitalizing with their own reality TV show, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

The off-the-wall and loud-mouthed couple is currently entertaining several offers from production companies for their own show — and an insider tells Radar that Amy and Samy hope to seal the deal.

Yeah. That's the ticket. Whenever they say the inevitable more stupid, it was the hackers.
