In NY, 18-20% is about 75%, 15% about 15%, and below 15% about 10%. Note, I am NOT counting bad tips due to bad service/issues or tourists.

In my opinion, it's better to work at a slower paced low volume restaurant so that you're not constantly having to "turn and burn" tables. This way you can attend to tables and receive decent percentages on checks.

This isn't always the case though. You can make a lot of money either way if you're working in the right place

Your theory works in a place where the average spend is $50pp. In an establishment with a $25pp average, you need to turn and burn if you want to make real money.
