Tipping the sushi chef? [moved from Manhattan board]

Huck | Nov 16, 2008 11:36 AM

I don't have a lot of experience going to good sushi restos & I'm wondering if it is common/expected to tip the sushi chef in addition to the 15-20% added to the bill? I understand it's a nice gesture to buy him a drink, but is it expected in NYC to tip if one is at the counter after a omakase dinner?
