“As a result, to protect our restaurant’s culture, we installed a minimum standard in our ‘business casual’ attire dress code which includes jeans and sneakers but prohibits baseball caps and athletic clothing including sweat pants and tops.”

The restaurant later then apologized.

“We want to apologize to Mr. Wilkins for his experience at our restaurant and also for any confusion our dress code may have caused.”

“We in no way intended for him to feel unwanted, and welcome an open dialogue with him. Our upscale dining experience and our brand’s culture is made up of multiple elements, which include our music, our food and our patrons’ attire.”

“We continue to strive to manifest our dining experience in a way that is exciting and most importantly, inclusive.”
