Grub has learned that the infamous lawyer has filed a lawsuit, along with another lawyer named Louis Pechman, on behalf of the waitstaff who work for Crown Group Hospitality (Bill’s Food and Drink, Crown, and the Lion). Kirschenbaum is seeking to recover unpaid overtime and minimum wages, as well as “misappropriated ‘service charges’ which, upon information and belief, defendants led their customers to believe were gratuities to be paid in their entirety to their service staff but which were actually retained by the house.” Check out the full suit here.
