Four female employees have filed a $600 million lawsuit against the Hooters-esque Hawaiian Tropic Zone restaurant in NYC. The employees claim that a top manager was given "full rein" by the restaurant's management company to harass and assault them; even turning a blind eye when he drugged and raped a senior manager in a taxi cab in 2006. The suit also claims that popular chef David Burke groped employees and that women were treated like objects to be drooled over by the management company that ran the restaurant, even being photographed and videotaped by top executives at interviews.
