The fancy French restaurant Artisanal Fromagerie & Bistro is being sued by four former servers who were allegedly ripped off by chef-owner Terrance Brennan, who, according to the lawsuit, shared their gratuities with his maitre d's and cheese-counter workers, "whose duties make them ineligible to receive tips under federal and/or New York law." The former employees were pretty cheesed off about the practice, and raised their complaints about the unlawful conduct to Brennan to persuade him to change the restaurant's policies. But when that failed, they brought in the corny lawyers. Attorney Justin Swartz tells the Post, "Restaurant owners shouldn't treat workers' tip pools like a pot of fondue."
