The Benefits of Contingency Fees II

I am in Miami for a few days.  My guidebook has this to say:

Miami restaurants are notorious for slow, arrogant service, by the time you finally get your cutting-edge dish of pan-roasted, pan-seared whatever, the trend that created it may well be long over.

I can verify, last night I walked out of two restaurants.  A little while later the guidebook also notes:

…many restaurants top up the bill with a 15-18 percent gratuity …

Also true, as in Europe Miami restaurants tack-on the "gratuity" automatically.  What the guidebook falls to mention is that the latter fact explains the former.
