Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

That merry band of megatippers TipsForJesus is at it again, this time spreading the cheer in Philadelphia. As shown in their customary Instagram post, TipsForJesus left $5,000 on a $258.25 bill to a server at Philadelphia's Rouge last night. According to, TipsForJesus also left an additional $2,000 on a $150.15 bar tab at the restaurant, bringing their grand tipping total to a whopping $7,000. After going quiet for a short while, the tippers recently hit San Francisco. Who can say where they're heading next? Servers should remain alert and not throw out their receipts.
