Florida Restaurant Bans Ketchup for Any Customer Over Age 10

You want ketchup on that burger? Sorry, not allowed.
At Mad Fresh Bistro in Fort Myers, Florida, chef and owner Xavier Duclos is refusing to serve the condiment to any customer over the age of 10, and people are, unsurprisingly, not taking it well, reports NBC affiliate WBBH.
Duclos, born in New York and raised in France, spent two years studying fine French cuisine and wants customers to trust his cooking capabilities, even on a menu that includes burgers and fries.
"We know, we know. People love their ketsup," says the restaurant's website. "But honestly, be ready. If you’re over 10 years old, ketsup will NOT be provided. Similarly, salt won’t be making an appearance next to your meal, either. We simply ask that you trust us. We know what we’re doing! Part of the MAD experience is to trust the chef, and not have preconceived notions of what your dish is going to need."
Ketchup, as you may remember, is no longer the most popular condiment in America. In February, it was passed by mayonnaise in sales. (While some may put salsa in that category, Euromonitor categorizes it as a dip, not a condiment.)

Re: Florida Restaurant Bans Ketchup for Any Customer Over Age 10

While I do understand where he is coming from, he is being a bit of an ass. Yes, he learned to prepare foods perfectly, according to him, but if a person wants a tad more salt, that is none of his business. I've had meals in absolutely top rated restaurants where initially the food was a bit bland. After adding just a small amount of salt, the whole dish was much more palatable and all of the flavors came through and made the experience much better.

The ketchup thing I can sympathise with. I have seen restaurant patrons douse a beautiful filet mignon with so much ketchup you may as well have served them cardboard.

Not that I was planning on going back to Florida any time soon, if ever, just for the arrogance I wouldn't go to his establishment.

French people hate garnishing. They hate us Brits for it.


So fuck them and their cuisine.

It's a business, let the guy do what he wants.

If someone wants 'catsup' on their food they can go elsewhere.
