Buy your sushi chef a beer? [moved from Manhattan board]

hamstrman | Jun 2, 2007 09:49 PM

So my friend mentioned the other day that he was at Ushi Wakamaru with a friend and 2 or 3 people at the bar bought Hideo a pitcher of beer and he drank half of it all at once! It is apparent that by buying the sushi chef a beer you are showing your appreciation and he might give you better stuff. How do I approach this? Just tell the waitress I'd like to buy a Sapporo for the chef? Do I ask the chef if he wants a beer? Or what kind he would like? I know these sound like stupid questions, but I have no clue. I'm taking some friends there next Friday and I will be sitting in front of Chef Hideo and I'd like to buy the man a beer. How should I go about this?
