Many people are down on Tax Day, but the staff of a restaurant in the North Side Lincoln Park neighborhood has reason to be upbeat.

Mike, a customer from Seattle whose last name was not given, tipped $300 for his $769 meal at the New American restaurant at 1769 N. Halsted St. on Sunday night, according to a post on Boka’s Facebook page.

He said, “This was the absolute best service and best food I have ever had,” according to the restaurant.

Mike then walked around the kitchen and gave each of the 17 kitchen staff a
crisp $100 bill, according to the post.

The Michelin-starred restaurant opened in 2003 and has also been nominated for several James Beard awards.
