You may have read or hear dabout a new "law" which does not permit restaurants to charge a "service charge".
The logical conclusion would be that prices would be lowered by 10% leaving customers the option of leaving a tip for service of 10% or more (or less).
Guess what? No such thing. Instead, what restaurants and cafes have done - in my experience at 6 places over the weekend - is to whiteout the writing that used to say "prices are inclusive of 10% municapilty charge and 10% Service Charge" yet the price remains the same. What joke.
