Now another local establishment says one of their customers has gone above and beyond.
In an Instagram post, The Rabbit Hole on Sparks Street reported that a customer visiting their patio on Saturday tipped $ 500 on a $ 170 bill.
Similar stories were reported in mid-July.
A gift of $ 1,500 was presented to a restaurant in Wellington West on July 13th. The following week, someone left a $ 1,600 tip at a restaurant in Findlay Creek.
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson encouraged residents to support local businesses during the closures. Council on Wednesday unanimously approved a motion of support from the Council of Business Improvement Areas of Ottawa, which calls on the Ontario government to release the data that led to its decision to restrict restaurants, bars and other businesses in the city.
The Ontario government imposed new restrictions on restaurants and bars, as well as other businesses, on October 10 due to a growing number of COVID-19 infections. The restrictions, which prohibit indoor meals, must be in place for at least 28 days.
