The Atlas Restaurant Group was reacting to cell phone video shot by Marcia Grant as they tried to get a table at the Ouzo Bay restaurant. You hear the manager tell them they can’t be seated because her son’s wardrobe violated the restaurant’s dress code.
Saw the video of Marcia Grant and her son. I am certain that situation will be in that young boy’s mind for his lifetime. Sensitivity to youth is vitally important. The apology was commendable. How will you turn this around for the young boy?Vote for JOE

Here’s the problem … there was another child in the restaurant — a white child — who was allowed in and he was dressed almost identically to Marcia’s son. Source: TMZ
Marcia Grant from Baltimore went to Facebook on Monday to resolve the weekend event in the city’s Ouzo Bay, a Mediterranean restaurant
The crazy thing is I shared their dress code and how it seems racially motivated back before they opened. I vowed that me or any of my family would eat there because of that. They are obviously trying to discriminate against any type of urban culture. Thats deeper than the just the race thing alone. Fuck ouza. They need to be boycotted anywayMichael Antonio Barksdale
Be wary they may just move this manager to one of their other restaurants.
Also this whole situation is the literal definition of racial profiling.
Good thing you were filming.
