January 13, 2014 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A crying baby at his upscale Chicago restaurant Alinea led Chef Grant Achatz to tweet about a possible ''baby ban.''
The infant was brought into Alinea on Saturday, and apparently had a crying fit.
Chef Achatz tweeted about his tiny guest, questioning whether he should consider banning babies there. He tweeted: "Tbl brings 8mo.Old. It cries. Diners mad. Tell ppl no kids? Subject diners 2crying? Ppl take infants 2 plays? Concerts? Hate saying no,but.."
"We want to accept young children into the restaurant. I take my kids to nice restaurants. But we also have 20 other people that have paid money to come experience a certain thing," said Achatz.
Achatz also tweeted a picture of two fish heads and "Definitely not baby food."
Diners pay $250 each and often wait for months for a reservation at Alinea.
A true restaurant for the 1 % of us who can afford it. Any restaurant that charges $ 250 a plate is one for the upper, upper crust of society. Having a restaurant that charges this amount is why Americas in the crapper with a hand on the valve. Forgive me if I insulted those on here who can afford such dining experience. I'll take my steak & shrimp from my grill any days. But if the man wants to cater to the 1% he can do as he wants.
