The 53-year-old Maureen Peters was shocked to find out that one of the customers of the steakhouse in which she works, left her $50,000 after his death. The rich customer turned out to be Robert Ellsworth, the late art dealer and a frequent customer at Donohue’s steakhouse in Manhattan. Robert passed away at the age of 85 and he was also known as the donator to the biggest museums in the world.

Employees at the restaurant remembered that Robert was at Donohue’s practically every day and sometimes even two times a day. Maureen said that he wasn’t just an ordinary customer for her, he was a close man to her and also the comrade of Maureen’s father, the founder of Donohue’s Steak House. The generous art dealer also left the same sum for Maureen’s niece, who is working at the restaurant once a week.

I’m very happy for such a gift, but I wish to have Robert alive instead

– said Maureen.

Ellsworth passed away in August last year and he was once called the ‘King of Ming’ by The Times newspaper for his big collection of showpieces from Asia. His coll was sold in March for unbeliveable $134 million and later set the new world record. Meanwhile, his favorite restaurant still remembers him by keeping things he often used at the restaurant when ordering his favorite meal: grilled cheese and beacon for lunch or a steak for dinner.
