Restaurants banning kids?
Should some Hoboken restaurants to have “kid free” days?
If you looked at the entire complaint list for all the restaurants in Hoboken, it’d be my guess that one of the most frequent items would be “noisy kids.”
People typically go out to eat for a relaxing escape from their daily grind, eat delicious prepared food, and enjoy being served by others. And they pay for that luxury. Many couples I know don’t appreciate a wailing baby or unruly toddler disturbing their romantic restaurant excursion.
While many restaurants in town actually have gone out of their way to accommodate stroller moms at certain times (like Bin 14 uptown), I have yet to see one single restaurant have a “kid-free” zone or day where children, say under a certain age, are not permitted.
Recently, some restaurants in Pennsylvania have begun banning children in response to customer complaints, and even Malaysia Airlines banned infants from First Class.
Babies and kids are nothing new. But perhaps teaching kids respect and proper behavior is what’s falling short these days…
Would you be for or against a similar child ban at restaurants in Hoboken?
