Did Mariah’s Team Stiff Hard Rock Staff on Tip for $500 Meal?
Page Six, the entertainment and gossip page of the New York Post is reporting that Mariah Carey's staff stiffed workers at Roberts Steakhouse on a tip for close to $500 worth of take out food when Mariah Carey played the Hard Rock Atlantic City back on Dec 7.
The tabloid references "spies" who said a production assistant from her tour was dispatched to Robert’s Steakhouse in the hotel to pick up nearly $500 in takeout the same night Carey performed.
Said a spy, “Chef Will Savarese prepared the meal with extra attention to make sure that everything was perfect for the notoriously finicky pop star, who performed her Christmas show at the Hard Rock where the top-tier restaurant is located.”
According to a receipt, the order included lobster tail, strip steak, roast chicken, salmon, crab cakes, pasta dishes, salads and spinach.
But the paper's source said some servers rolled their eyes when the staffer handed over $500 in cash for the meal totaling $493.67 — but took back the $6.33 in change and didn’t leave a tip. Ouch!
