Kefi, Casa La Femme Are the Latest Restaurants to Get Sued

Just when things were going so well for Michael Psilakis!

"Scourge of restaurateurs" Maimon Kirschenbaum is up to his old tricks — that is, suing restaurants. Today’s not-so-lucky targets: Kefi, Casa La Femme, and XO Creperie. Oh no, just when things were going so well for Kefi co-owner Michael Psilakis (what with that new BBC Show, and MP Taverna expanding). The allegations are the usual illegal tip distribution and failure to pay spread-of-hours pay or overtime. Oh, except at XO, where dishwasher plaintiffs also tacked on that gripe that they were forced to pay a daily "dish charge" for inevitable breakage — that does suck.
