Yet another restaurant titan will eliminate tipping—Andrew Tarlow, proprietor of popular restaurants like Diner, Marlow & Sons, Roman's, and Reynard, will follow in the footsteps of Danny Meyer and the Eleven Madison Park team and ease out tipping at all his restaurants by the end of 2016, in exchange for slightly higher menu prices.

Eater reports that Roman's in Fort Greene will be the first to end tipping, with that policy in effect starting on January 18th. Prices will tick up about 20 percent. "It's the smallest of my restaurants, so it seems to be the best test case," Tarlow told the site, noting that he will now pay cooks and other back-of-the-house employees a $15/hour minimum, a little under $2 more than the average pay for cooks. Waiters will earn $15/hour and share some of the extra 20 percent cash, theoretically taking home the same amount they were earning before the tipping elimination.

Restaurant titan Danny Meyer eliminated tipping at The Modern last month and has pledged to eventually can gratuity at the rest of his 12 eating establishments by the end of 2016, provided The Modern experiment works. East Village eatery Huertas, which is run by a couple of Meyer alums, announced last week that they would follow suit, and Eleven Madison Park will axe tipping at the start of 2016. Amanda Cohen's Dirt Candy was one of the trailblazers in the growing no-tipping movement.
