Can't comment on "kid friendly"?

johnblacksox | May 22, 2011 07:28 PM

Someone asked on the Manhattan board where would be an appropriate "upscale Italian restaurant" to take a 10 month old baby for a special occasion.

I replied that I don't think it's appropriate to take a 10 month old to an "upscale Italian restaurant", and my comment was immediately deleted.

An other poster suggested, seriously, Lincoln. That post is allowed? Taking an infant to Lincoln? Because Lincoln is "kid friendly"?

I know "kid friendly" is like the third rail of discussions, but if some people are going to recommend taking infants to places like Per Se for dinner, at what point am I allowed to say that that is really not appropriate in my opinion?

If mods are going to delete posts that places are not appropriate, I think they should make a rule that there be absolutely no threads about "kid friendliness" of restaurants. You shouldn't ban one side of opinions.

It's like if I asked which upscale high-end restaurants would be appropriate for me to wear a t-shirt, shorts, and flip-flops. One poster recommends Per Se to me. Another says that that dress isn't appropriate for upscale places, and that post gets deleted.
