I agree with you completely. The article implied the man was a regular at this restaurant when he came to NYC. Don’t you think the staff would have recognized that fact and allowed him to get the money? I don’t think this man was intending to stiff the restaurant on the bill. Of course he should have brought his wallet but this was a huge overreaction by this restaurant I believe.

And maybe the article’s working hard to create that impression, telling us the offender is “clean-cut”.

Define a regular when he visits NYC. Most likely, he eats there once or twice a year when he visits. This is not Mayberry, where someone new stands out like a sore thumb.
