Not About Food

O Captain My Captain

Paul | Apr 7, 200503:44 PM     4

Not to come off as a total rube, but I went to Le Bernardin yesterday for a birthday lunch and when we received the bill there was a line for a general tip and then a line for a tip for the Captain. We didn't have any wine and were waited on by three people--a man who took our order, a waiter and a bus boy. We inquired about the gentleman who took our order and whether he was the Captain, but weren't completely clear on the response we got. I haven't encountered the Captain tip line at other 4 star places, and was just wondering if anyone could shed some light. Thank you.
