Grant Achatz Pushes for Baby Restaurant Ban: Do You Agree?

by at . Comments

It started as a mere Tweet.

And it has grown into a national debate.

On Saturday night, celebrity chef Grant Achatz Tweeted a complaint that a crying baby inside the restaurant Alinea was causing major problems.

“Tbl brings 8mo.Old. It cries. Diners mad," he wrote. "Tell ppl no kids? Subject diners 2crying? Ppl take infants 2 plays? Concerts? Hate saying no,but..”

Achatz then appeared on Good Morning America and added:

“I could hear it crying in the kitchen. We want people to come in and enjoy and experience Alinea for what it is, but we also have to be cognizant of the other 80 people that came in to experience Alinea that night.”

Achatz's 82,000 Twitter followers seemed split on whether or not babies should actually be banned from expensive restaurants, while we'd rather see some awful Hollywood mothers barred instead.

What do YOU think? Should babies not be allowed in high-end eateries?

Hey, there are tons of baby/kid-friendly restaurants -- and that's where smart parents bring their children. I have two kids and when I go out with my wife, I want to enjoy my meal in peace and quiet. If I wanted to hear kids screaming and crying, I'd stay home and order in a pizza!

You should be able to go to an expensive restaurant without listening to screaming babies and toddlers running all over the place. Saying that I am guilty of going to a restaurant we used to patronize almost weekly with another couple and their infant a couple of times. The owner would usually seat us in a private dining area to avoid conflict with other diners. She was also such a sweet lady she would grab the baby while we ate and take him upstairs to rock. My SIL was known to pay for a meal and leave when her kids acted out. It was a good lesson for the kids to learn. Behave or you do not get the privilege of going out.

It's not fair for me to pay over 20 $ person for me to put up with a screaming kid. Iv got kids but I took them to under 10 $ restaurants and if they cry...we'd leave. That why I get my food to go at olive garden and eat in the bar.
