Thumbs down Upper East Side Restaurant Nello Bans Single Women From Eating At The Bar

This is a clear case of discrimination and shouldn't be allowed to continue. All single women are not sex workers!

Quote:
This week, in an essay titled "The Night I Was Mistaken for a Call Girl," jet-setting creative executive Clementine Crawford shared her dehumanizing (in more ways than one) experience at her favorite uptown eatery upon a recent trip to New York.

"I perched at my favourite seat at the bar and started to respond to all the emails that had arrived on the flight over," she explains. "A waiter approached a familiar face, but oddly hesitant on this occasion. He advised with evident embarrassment that I was no longer permitted to eat at my usual spot and that I must now sit down at a table."

When she returned a few days later, she was told to move yet again. Then, from her new table, she watched as a fellow regular - a male one, that is - was served his meal without incident while perched on a stool at the bar. After rightfully speaking up, Crawford learned "that the owner had ordered a crackdown on hookers" and assumed management believed "upscale escorts working the bar lowered the tone of the place and would be less obvious if escorted behind a table."

She spoke to an owner, explained that she had been misidentified, and he responded "that he could run his business as he pleased, and that [she] was no longer welcome to eat at the bar, only at a table."

Their not???? Dayam.

Thanks for destroying that fantasy.

Seriously, this is uncalled for on the part of the owner/manager. What a negative opinion of the better sex. If the author sued, I would not call it frivolous.

He is not only sexist but business stupid. When the pretty young girls stop coming in, so will the well heeled gentlemen. And it will take hookers and escorts to keep the lights on.

I applaud that entire comment.
