    STATEN ISLAND, New York (WABC) — A diner full of customers was treated to a free meal in Staten Island and the owner wants to track down the anonymous patron who footed the bill.

On Saturday morning, a customer at the Colonnade Diner on Hylan Boulevard told a waitress to collect everyone else’s checks.

He then picked up all the tabs, which came to $2,500. There were about 50 people eating breakfast at the time.

The owner of the diner posed for a picture with the check.

He and his staff say they hope the generous customer returns so they can thank him for the kind gesture.
