According to The Huffington Post, Grant Achatz took several complaints from diners at his Chicago restaurant because a baby was crying.
While that’s hardly a crime, it’s important to note the restaurant in question is ‘Alinea,’ a $265-per-head kind of place.
The discussion about children in fine dining establishments took on a life of its own. Many offered their true opinions and others joked about the situation.
Before long, a new Twitter account was born.
They gave me a black bib so as not to leave white lint on my onesie. They noticed I had no hand preference – this place is classy!
