The mystery tipper TipsForJesus is at it again. The anonymous tipper — who has left thousands of dollars in tips across the country — shared a photo on Instagram of a receipt from the critically acclaimed raw-focused Phoenix restaurant Crudo showing a $2,500 tip left on a $530.67 bill. The receipt also calls it "the best restaurant in Phoenix" and encourages would-be diners to keep an eye out for co-owner Micah Olson.

Reps from Crudo confirm to Eater that the mystery tipper dined at the bar last night and did indeed "tip big." The restaurant did not reveal the identity of the person (persons?) behind the TipsForJesus project, so for now servers will just need to hope they're next on the docket. Based on the Instagram account, recent cities on the big tipping itinerary have included Port Orchard, WA, Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco, but there's no predicting where the next receipt might pop up.
