Chicago chef Grant Achatz tweeted that he's considering banning babies from his restaurant after a couple brought their eight month old infant to Alinea, an upscale restaurant in Lincoln Park that costs between $210 and $265 per diner, not including drinks.
"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..," the chef Tweeted late last week.
"I could hear it crying in the kitchen," Achatz told Good Morning America. "We want people to come 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."
The couple was not asked to leave the restaurant.
