This Week in Pizza — February 3

 

At least 18 New York restaurants now have no-tipping policies and have boosted server wages instead. So how do customers feel about that? Most don’t like it one bit. A national study from Horizon Media, a New York media services agency, found that 81 percent of adult restaurant-goers disapprove of bans on server tipping. But that number goes down as the customers get younger. Millennials, that increasingly desirable big-money demographic everyone’s talking about, have a different take on it entirely.
