A customer left a $5,600 tip for employees at an Ohio restaurant.

The generous individual gave thousands to the Souk Mediterranean Kitchen & Bar despite not even ordering any food.
Chef Moussa Salloukh took to social media to express gratitude for the donation and said it will make a real difference with the restaurant losing money amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Salloukh wrote on Facebook:

“What an amazing gesture of kindness to my employees.”

“This is not an ordinary December. Normally, this a month when our employees work extra and guests tip generously. December is a month for them to earn money to buy family gifts, put a bit into savings and take care of bills or repairs that have been lingering.
“With Covid restrictions and guidelines, that was not going to happen for them this year. So this heartfelt generosity was deeply needed and very appreciated.”
