Tipping Advice?

Elaine | Jul 29, 2000 02:48 PM

I have a question that's been plaguing my ignorant self for years: When you eat at a fancy restaurant and the wine steward/sommelier helps you choose a wine, are you supposed to tip him separately and if so, how? Or does he get the part of the 20% you leave the waiter that's attributable to the wine? Or does he just do it for the love of it? Any thoughts?
