Tipping the chef-owner at the chef's table in kitchen

Food Tourist | Dec 18, 2006 02:56 AM

I searched high and low and didn't see the answer to my dilemma. We are eating at the chef's kitchen table at Treadwell in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada on Dec. 24 evening. The chef is also the owner. We don't know him personally and have only eaten at his restaurant once before. We've never eaten at a chef's table in a kitchen before, and have no idea how to tip! Please advise. (Normally in most of Ontario, most people tip 15% which means we tip slightly more than our 14% taxes).
