St. Francis Posts a Kids Lunch Menu and Sets Off a Little Debate About Children in Restaurants

It started innocently enough.

Last week, St. Francis, the stunningly cool bastion of contemporary American cuisine in Central Phoenix, posted a lunch menu for kids on their Facebook page and ended up with a discussion -- pro and con -- about children in restaurants.

We go there to escape, relax...not a Chucky [sic] Cheese experience," wrote one commenter. "We love you are kid friendly, that doesn't mean kids run around and destroy the place," wrote another. 

The back and forth comes almost two months after Eater reported a restaurant owner in Pennsylvania who banned kids under the age of six from his establishment, and also cited previous moves by former Top Chef contestant Dale Levitski (who banned kids from brunch at his Chicago restaurant), and a North Carolina restaurant with a zero tolerance policy with screaming children.
