People that don’t like La Fisheria need to calm down. Why does everyone have to be so sensitive? So they made a statement about not having little kids in the restaurant after a certain hour at night. So? Is this really a cruel and unusual request for a small restaurant to make? There are probably thousands of scaredy cat small restaurant owners too scared to say they agree with La Fisheria’s no-little-kids-at-night policy. It must have been a really slow news day for this story to go national.
If La Fisheria did not like kids they would have cropped the kids out of the important picture above. They obviously like kids because these particular kids are included in the picture. For your convenience, I have placed a croppped, childless picture as an example of what the picture above would look like if La Fisheria really did not like kids. After a full blown La-Fisheria-hating-kids investigation, this case is now— closed.
Look, before some super scary mom is mean to me, please, let me explain. La Fisheria is a small restaurant located in a small house. Imagine having paid a babysitter in hopes of having a lovely, semi-quiet dinner at La Fisheria. You get there and lots of loud little kids are running around all over the place. Who likes this? No one likes this. La Fisheria wants to make everyone happy. In my opinion, this is all that parent’s fault. You know– that parent. The one letting their kids act batsh*% crazy during dinner. Of course you do. Instead of growling at La Fisheria, let us all stand up to parents with zero control of their offspring during every restaurant visit. That parent is to blame for heinously sitting by while all customers are violated.
Everyone has been violated by that parent at least 14 times in their life, yet no one has the cojones to say, “Hey, get a grip and grab your kid. Hold the reins tighter because you’re as pitiful as a pitiful parent could possibly be.” I happen to think since that parent is letting their kids run the restaurant show, they should be banned from every restaurant from America to Mexico.
If you are a regular childless customer or a good parent having been violated by that parent not controlling their kids, then you get it. Plain & simple. Sometimes that parent ignores the fact their kids are running around like wild animals– yelling, grabbing stuff, jumping on chairs, playing in water fountains, crying, throwing objects, and wiping snot all over the place. Parents need to keep it on the down low. Nighttime is the time for kids to be sleeping or playing at home with their favorite babysitter. It’s the right thing to do.
After a full blown kid’s opinion investigation, it has been uncovered that my two daughters and son agree with this rule. They would much rather be somewhere like Pump-it-Up or roller skating with a sassy sitter somewhere. Why do they want to go sit at La Fisheria, late at night, while my husband and I are having a romantic dinner? They, of course, do not run around restaurants acting bonkers, yet still prefer a late night party at the YMCA instead. I bet the only people making a big deal out of La Fisheria’s statement are the people that let their kids morph into elephants at the restaurant door. Get a sitter, people. It’s not like La Fisheria doesn’t like kids. Anyone with common sense knows this.
We recently stopped by La Fisheria during the day and saw– KIDS! Gasp. Chef Aquiles did not have a lot to say about the controversy. He did mention never realizing this would be the outcome, as it was never his intention to upset anyone. He’s a loving father who takes pride in his restaurant and the people who visit. Everyone’s got an opinion, right? I happen to like this chef, his food, and his policy.
