fed up of screaming brats in his restaurant ruining the evening for other dinners,
owner Pasquale Caruso, adopted a “no child under five” policy in January 2017 in his restaurant, the Caruso in Mooresville, North Carolina, U.S.A. and guess what? Pasquale Caruso claims that the online support for his controversial policy is reflected in the success of his business, the number of reservations has risen significantly since word got out about the restaurant’s no-child rule, and the number of patrons has gone from 50 a day, to around 80, “People don’t want to come in and spend money on a nice meal and an evening out, when there’s constantly food on the floor, loud electronic devices keeping kids entertained, and small children screaming, it was just the right decision for my business,” Caruso concluded, the decision was made when a little girl using an iPad with the volume set on high, despite repeated requests from the staff, her parents refused to turn down the device, so they had to ask them to leave. “They were upset, but they didn’t seem to care about what the other guests thought, We tried to be nice about the situation, but we’re here to take care of customers and we can’t tell a parent how to control their kids,” Yoshi Nunez, the restaurant’s manager, told the Washington Post,
what a great idea and here is another one extend the ban to anyone under the legal age to drink, they also have computer games, the idea of an age ban seems to be catching on, restaurants in Texas, Pennsylvania, California and countries like Italy, Australia or Korea have also banned young children as indeed have many holiday companies who advertise holidays like Kuoni who operate a no under 16 year old policy and cruises, such as Saga, Saga Sapphire, P&O Cruises, Arcadia, Fred Olsen, Cruise And Maritime to mention just a few all having adults only cruises, having a nice romantic evening meal without spoilt brats running and screaming around, now there’s a pleasant thought.
