Chicago chef sparks debate over babies in high-end restaurants: Should there be a ban?

CHICAGO —

A chef at a high-end restaurant in Chicago has stirred up quite a controversy after sending out a Tweet asking, in short, what he should do when a baby disrupts other diners.

 

Chef and owner of one of the world’s top restaurants, Grant Achatz, sent out the Tweet Saturday night after a couple brought their 8-month-old to his restaurant Alinea.

 

The couple said their babysitter cancelled on them at the last minute and they were given no choice but to bring their child to the eatery that charges customers before they enter the door.

“Instead of traditional reservations, Alinea offers a ticketed system, where diners must pay between $210 and $265 up front for the tasting-menu-only dinner (the price does not include tax, tip or beverages). The restaurant does not accept walk-ins,” Today.com’s Tracy Saelinger wrote.
