Bono Leaves $150 Tip at Canter’s Deli

What a mensch. U2’s Bono left a for a 50-year veteran server at Canter’s Deli in Los Angeles last week.

Billboard reports the Irish pop star wolfed down “a veritable mish-mash of classic Jewish deli fare, including a corned beef reuben, french fries and onion rings. For dessert: chocolate chip rugelach on the house.”

Canter’s even got a shout-out on U2’s official web site.

It sounds like Bono finally found what he was looking for.
