Grant Achatz Responds to the Crying Alinea Baby on GMA

New, 17 comments

Here's a segment from this morning's Good Morning America in which chef Grant Achatz discusses his opinions on the situation caused by a couple who brought a crying baby to his three Michelin-starred Chicago restaurant Alinea this weekend, prompting him to consider banning kids at his restaurant. Achatz tells GMA: "I could hear it crying in the kitchen." He also explains why having a crying kid in the restaurant is such a problem: "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." Apparently when the episode aired this morning, the titles referred to Achatz by the name Greg, but a mispronunciation of Alinea is still there in the introduction to the segment. Go, watch:
