Anyone who's had a baby knows how difficult it can be to enjoy a dining experience. Thankfully our little boy is very good at restaurants even though he's a wee little 8month old. Forget fancy restaurants we usually eat at diners and casual dining places these days, mostly lunch time. Last weekend we braved a sunday brunch outing at a french restaurant we used to frequent; I was really in the mood for crepes. The restaurant wasn't busy at the time but the hostess seemed a little irked with us for asking for a 4-top. Babies come with their own cargo unfortunately but thankfully we didn't have a stroller or anything, we brought our handy dandy little booster seat that attaches itself to the side of the table. The hostess insisted that we should use a 2-top but naturally we refused - baby has to have a clear surface in front of him, not one muddled with forks and napkins etc. She gave us a bit of grief but finally conceded to our wishes. To those of you who are in the industry and are restaurant operators/owners, does it really bother you that much that a baby comes into your restaurant?
