A Restaurant In Florida Actually Just Banned Adults From Using Ketchup

Say your goodbyes, people.

If you're over 10-years-old, you don't need ketchup — at least, that's the case made by chef Xavier Duclos, Yahoo reports.

Duclos, who owns the Mad Fresh Bistro in Fort Myers, Florida, has banned ketchup — the second-most popular condiment in the States — from the restaurant's menu. His reasoning? He wants customers to trust his cooking skills and be a part of the MAD experience of trusting a chef.

"We know, we know. People love their ketchup. But honestly, be ready. If you"re over 10 years old, ketchup 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!" reads the banner on Mad Fresh Bistro's website.

The Yahoo story thread now has over 1,700 comments with people taking different sides.

Xavier Duclos stands by his point stating that his burgers already have enough sauce on them and there's no point in ruining them by adding something like Heinz, which he calls the worst of the ketchups.

What do you think — ketchup or no ketchup?
