I've heard this is not the first time Chef David has been abusive to employees. Not only that, but he has, in the past, been abusive to patrons. A course in anger management may be helpful.

As the owner of the metropolitan citi grill I take pride in our great restaurant. We have a great staff that works incredibly hard on a daily basis for all of our customers.In this case the female individual was fired on the spot after numerous issues (and I do mean numerous).Shortly after she was told to leave the building she used hate language to myself. I admit I am tempered but i will not tolerate Hate crime words. I threw my beverage in her face and grabbed her tie. I had boiled over. For that I apologize for my heated actions. Ask any one of our staff members how she would intentionally act up. It was just awful that I let it go on for so long I did not strike her in any way at all ever and the video states that clearly. Again I apologize to our community. David
