(Yelp)   When the upscale chain steakhouse says "no hats," they mean "no hats." Even if you brought in a 16 person office party. And your head is cold. Because you're undergoing chemo. Bonus: the police drop by   (yelp.com) divider line 343

Note to self: if chemo is needed in the future, buy an Austin Powers wig. Because everyone loves Austin Powers.

Having said that, whoever is managing that restaurant is missing one marvelous opportunity to become a prison warden...

Your cancer patient wants steak?
 
2013-12-16 02:35:30 AM
It's the South.  Word will get around and only tourists will go there.

Benevolent Misanthrope: It's the South. Internet.   Word will get around and only tourists will go there.

No one will go there.


They have to do some MAJOR damage control;  from the online stuff posted by people that were there it was a pretty farked up situation brought about by one tin god manager. Who was "Following rules" without a brain.

Things like this can end a business if not handled correctly; which would take some groveling.

I'm sorry, but I don't care for Yelp or other business review sites. Take this to your local media, the local media will shiat on the company better than we can.

How they should handle it:

Don't fire the managers. Put a public statement about their policies and dress code and say the managers where only following those policies. Which are under review. Frankly the mangers where only following corporation's inflexible policy.

Review the corporate policies and allow flexibility.
Make sensitivity training mandatory for all managers and management. Especially the ones involved.
Allow flexibility for those with special needs in policies.
Give the mangers and staff "Guest recovery" power to bend the rules to make a guest happy with no problem from corporate.
Make it clear that any flexibility (allowing service animals, hats for cancer people etc) is up to the manager and should favor the customer when any doubt is and basically USE farken common sense.

Refund the full price of the meal to the party involved with a big donation to the local Cancer fund.

As a guy who has had every length of hair except ankle, let me just say blow it out yer all steak joint. Warm hats are a bald man's RIGHT. Warm hats are a sick man's RIGHT. A chain steakhouse's dress code is just local more. Not even a strong one. Blow dat.

fark that. I'd rather die cold than give so much as a penny to lawyers over something that, quite frankly, should be handled by humans with common sense. The ADA is a double edged sword. Speaking of double edged swords, that's not how the issue should be resolved either.

No, this situation can only be resolved in a win-win scenario by having the manager, or bikini model of their choice, representing the restaurant wrassle with the person who left the review, or the bikini model of their choice, in a kiddie pool full of mashed potatoes and gravy in the middle of the restaurant while everyone involved in the original incident who is over 18 (which should be the drinking age) enjoys free beer and sirlion and a dwarf riding a pony rides around and tells dirty jokes and does table magic. Also, there will be cake. Bawdy cake. And maybe one of the nude sushis, male and female. And of course a local cover band will be there dressed as medieval minstrels and maybe I could officiate wearing a costume shop crown, and we'll need more bikini models for some warm up fights. And maybe a mechanical bull.

There's no such thing as an "upscale chain steakhouse".  They all get meat from the same place and charge you more for atmosphere.

If they age the beef in-house they might very well be upscale...

Your Yelp review was sufficient.  There is no further you need to take this in on the internet.
 
2013-12-16 07:35:06 AM
I've always felt that people who slavishly follow the rules without thinking about how and why they were written have some sort of mental disorder. Yes, there was a no hat rule. However, exceptions can and should be made. This was one of those exceptional situations. Mindlessly enforcing a no hat rule on a bald cancer survivor is needlessly cruel. And really...it's a stupid rule to begin with. Who the hell cares if you wear a hat?!

2013-12-16 07:47:17 AM
Maybe I am naive, but I find it hard to believe the restaurant acted like this for no reason whatsoever. I'll bet that the group was acting half-retarded all night and the staff was taking their turn to be a dick right back. Sure, if that is true ... maybe pick a better target next time, but there is just something about the way these people are writing their reviews that make me raise an eyebrow.

Very sharp. You must be a PR/exec type.

I am conflicted over the abandonment of public decorum (in our failure to remove headgear at the dinner table) and secondarily: inflexibility.

^This.  It even sounded like it was reasonable up until everyone else "stuck up" for the cancer patient.

"Sir, I'm sorry, there's 'no hats' in our dress code"
"Sure, no problem.  I was just a little cold."
"HEY! HE'S GOT CANCER, YOU DICK!"
"Guys, it's fine.  I'm just a little chilly-"

Just so I'm clear, this "upscale" steakhouse likely buys their steaks from the same supplier that my local grill does? Or do they have some kind of magic tender cows? So I'm just paying more for their snobby service and reputation?

/yes, been to Morton's. Nice, no nicer than any other place
 
2013-12-16 08:02:11 AM
the manger is a farking idiot and should be fired. Asking a cancer patient for a doctors note so you can allow them to wear a hat, that is insanely douchey.

I don't know about Morton's, but other upscale steakhouses do not get their beef from the same place your local supplier does. That's ya know, the point
