Locke-Ober / Lydia Shire & Paul Licari Boston Massachusetts

Complaint: For those in the know, Locke-Ober was one of the premier eating establishments in Boston for many years. It catered to the the blue-blood, the Boston Brahim. It’s history and tradition are unrivaled in the the industry. In the fall of 2001 Lydia Shire and Paul reopened the legendary restaurant to an apprehensive and eager Boston. Their restoration of the interior was nothing short of magnifent. The fact that they chose to keep on some long time staff was exemplary. Some waiters had been there 30+ years. That is the end of any and all good-doing by this duo. In short order, starting on the very first night, their true colors appeared. Waiters, Waitresses, & Bartenders made several hundred dollars in tips on opening night; averaging @$500 per employee. These employees were forced to put there tips into a pool to be divided “equally amongst the staff””. Some waiters who had made in excess of $600 that evening
