The story of the scandalous evening at Alinea went viral. War is one thing, death another. Famine might be a third. But no horror approaches laying out half a grand for an evening for two at a swell restaurant and spending it in earshot of a mewling infant. "I am mainly just stunned and appalled that anyone would go to a Michelin Starred restaurant with an infant," said Trudy Richardson, a relatively temperate Alinea patron putting in her two cents on the restaurant's Facebook page. "The total lack of class and lack of care for others is unbelievable. Stop the children; if they can afford to eat in this restaurant then they can afford to pay for a sitter. They are like most Americans today and are totally about themselves and have no care for others."
