How To Make $100k As A Waiter In NYC

Posted on

When you think $100k salary, you think lawyer or doctor, but in New York City, you could be a waiter making that much money.

“Most of ours are more like $75,000, though there are certainly restaurants that have $100,000,” said John Meadow, founder and president of LDV Hospitality.

LDV Hospitality owns restaurants across the country, including popular New York City spots Scarpetta and American Cut.

“If you’re a waiter at Scarpetta, American Cut, or American Cut Midtown, you’re making that money,” said Meadow.

You won’t be making this money just at any restaurant. High price point (a solid $95 per person) and high volume are just two criterias needing to be met.
