There have to be boundaries and limits in life and I think these restaurants are well outside child friendly ….

    • Yes, “grown up” restaurants have menus designed for adults only…tough for a business to manage, but the child won’t have a good time, and neither will anyone else! Thanks for the comment!

      • My pleasure. Though it won’t be my husband’s when I start the whining in his ear that I want to try Alinéa for myself!!

      • HA! Justin Timberlake posted a video of himself eating the “helium filled apple flavored balloon” dessert – funny! We had it as well and it’s great

  2. Fascinating indeed, John, and a real dining experience.
    As for no babies or small kids, that gets my vote every time! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
