Influential restaurateur Danny Meyer, head of the Union Square Hospitality Group, has announced that he is ditching tipping at his full-service restaurants.

Shake Shack stocks may rise up with the introduction of the latest addition in its expanding menu. The highly favored burger chain debuted its first ever fried chicken sandwich available only in three Brooklyn outlets, and it sure looks enticing.
