Well, here’s an unusual addition to the restaurant-wage-issues saga: One disgruntled party seems to have forgone legal counsel in favor of a paper flyer smear campaign against Bar Veloce. The signs, spotted by EV Grieve, caution passerby against frequenting the establishments, which allegedly “refuse to pay their hardworking staff any overtime and take a hefty cut of every tip.” There’s even an e-mail address to contact for more info (, and the text of a recent Eater comment is reproduced on the flyer, outlining the alleged offenses. You’ll recall that this isn’t the first time in recent memory that drama has swirled around the Veloce group: Just last summer Veloce Pizzeria shut down, while Bar Carrera became a second Bar Veloce. Stay posted on this one. [EV Grieve]
