Chef treating you to dinner - how much to tip?

Jeanne | Feb 2, 2007 10:58 AM

A chef at a local restaurant is treating me to dinner. I've arranged large parties with his restaurant through work, but have not been able to make the parties I've arranged - therefore he has invited me to come in for dinner. I know I should tip on the total cost of the meal - the average 20% or higher?

The chef also owns the restaurant - if that is important.
