Should babies be allowed at fine dining restaurants?

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO, IL (WNEM) -

How young is too young to bring a child to a fine dining restaurant?

A chef in Chicago is asking just that. Alinea's is one of Chicago's top restaurants with plates beginning at $230. So diners were not happy when a couple brought their 8-month-old baby to dinner.

The chef, Grant Achatz, says he could hear the baby crying from the kitchen and that led to a frustrating tweet, that has now grown into a national debate.

He's now contemplating a change of policy when it comes to tiny tasters. And he's not alone.

A growing number of restaurants are putting rules in place, banning children after 7 p.m.
