Love Grady, great football player, but he was in Buckhead, it happens. Don’t let it ruin your life.

I was denied me service for wearing nice jeans, so I’ve been denied service for a dress code.
I’ve also been to a 5 ?? restaurant with a dress code, where they loaned me a dinner jacket, or I had to leave.
Every time I went back, I learned and wore a jacket.
Never showed up with sweats though. Jeans and a dinner jacket were my problems.
Been thrown out of other places for being rowdy, even a strip joint by a black bouncer, not racist.

Doesn’t seem racial, or he would be suing them.
Never been tossed out of Wal-Mart…..

Grady and Dominique should open their own restaurant with no dress code.
Call it a Sports Bar….. I would go!

I have no problem with an upscale restaurant having a dress code and enforcing. You are paying for more than just great food when you go.

Also, I wouldn’t mind airlines having a baseline dress code. You don’t need to wear a suit or dress but at least don’t dress like a 3am Walmart shopper.

I think that if Grady would have tucked those white strings in, they probably wouldn't have noticed that it was sweats he had on bc those sweats looked pretty dang nice!!! And yes, I think the restaurant person was nit picking, he could have quietly told Grady to go to the rest room and tuck the strings in, and also told Grady that in the future to remember that sweats just wasn't allowed even though his looked very nice, and went about his business, and no problem!!!

Doesn't mean it meets the dress code!! I'm sure plenty of others have been turned away just like it was mentioned. Just because you are multi-millionaires doesn't mean you can wear what you want to an establishment that has a code.

Jarrett's attire is definitely not what I see in 5* restaurants. Dress accordingly, no issue!

Dress accordingly, but it is tough to judge in this situation. Yes, technically he didn't meet the dress code but in the restaurant's statement, they admit to relaxing the dress code. At that point, it just comes down to a matter of consistency. If there were others in similar attire, then the restaurant needs to make sure that different people will make the same judgement call. Likely one host/hostess was a little more liberal about the standards, than the one that dealt with Jarrett.

Seems like a little more is being made of it than should be, but that is the time we are living in. I'll buy him dinner if he wants. The places that are "fine dining" for me would be looking him up and down too, but for the quality of his attire.

All Orange, you have the correct answer.

No need to make a big scene out of it; have a private conversation with the customer, ask hi tuck in the strings, and to not wear athletic wear next time.

It reads like G.Jarrett is a regular customer; he's also a local celebrity. If he comes back again in improper attire, THEN its perfectly correct to ask him to leave.

But not the first time with this minor 'dress code violation' thing.

If your boxers or butt was showing or his, then you wouldn't enter my upscale restaurant either. Dont care if you are rich/poor or if you are white or black

Feel like its being made an issue for a simple dresscode. I don't care if that sweatsuit cost $10 or $100k it still isnt a button down shirt with an over coat that could be removed during dinner.

I think Dawn Staley $5k letterman jacket that was green and white Louis Vuitton was not appropriate attire for nationals. Wasnt school colors nor professional. It was just a statement that she can afford high dollar athletic gear. It wouldn't be approved either in this restaurant

Unfortunately, those in the media along with others will use it to stir the racial pot when its store policy.

If its a sports coat or better code, then comply and don't make it an issue. Entitled has become a major issue in society, and I don't care what ethnicity you are.

I dunno ... some dreads are nicely groomed, others look like someone had just come through a hurricane.

Similar to long hair on a white guy. Although I think it's weird for guys to be a half century out of fashion with the long hair thingy, if it's combed out and doesn't stink like Meth then that should be OK.

But for the G.Jarrett / dress code thing ... especially since G.Jarrett is a repeat patron and probably recognizable by the restaurant due to his status as a local celebrity ... the proprietor should have had a private conversation with him to remind Grady of the dress code, and to please wear appropriate nice shirt and pants, clean socks and shoes next time.

How can you say it's not a racist thing when most dreadlocks are worn by people of one particular race? ??. Then you have the nerve to say " this is not a race thing " to cover yourself. I've never been to a place that turns down mullets for example, you know why bc white people wear that style. He stated he might have been wrong and accepted being turned away but there were other people, people wearing athletic attire and they were there eating. It wouldn't be based on race if they didn't selectively chose who they impose the dress code on. Get a life .

I would tend to believe Grady more had he taken out his phone and taking a picture of someone else dressed like him. Or waited outside until someone else walked out dressed like him. I’m sorry. I don’t take people‘s word for these things. People get offended by the slightest thing these days and lie. Just because he went to Clemson doesn’t mean the same thing couldn’t happen.

And I love the way people are making all types of comments like a private conversation or pull him aside or the staff must know who he is. I see a lot of assumptions being made in the comments.

I see how it can be very believable that a high-end restaurant like that would not know who Grady Jarrett is. I hate to break it to you people but most of the world doesn’t revolve around football. And if they turned away Dominique Wilkins who has been a true celebrity in Atlanta for more than 30 years then I’m inclined to believe the restaurant.

And I don’t care if other people have been dressed a little bit differently. If you have money and you’re going to an expensive restaurant dress like it. Don’t think that you can wear a sweat suit, no matter how expensive, and think you are going to be entitled because you’re an athlete or have money.

This isn’t Jersey or South Florida. This isn’t a mob owned restaurant. Once you have a certain amount of money act like you’ve been there before. Especially if you’re a college graduate. That goes for anyone. Regardless of race.

It's tough to say if it is racial or not. I agree that the reaction has been, but we really don't know about the refusal. If there were other patrons dressed similarly, why were they admitted? There is a good chance that they were seated by another host or hostess, not as strict about the dress code. Maybe they were women, since athletic wear on a woman is much more likely to be viewed as casual wear rather than a sweatsuit. You would be correct to say that it most likely was not racial, but it is not a given. There are plenty of people that would look at Grady Jarrett in the sweatsuit and think drug dealer, instead of successful and comfortable.

Without pictures or some type of evidence of people dressed like him either in the restaurant or going in and out I’m not inclined to believe him. I’m not taking his word just because he graduated from Clemson.

If he was a graduate of South Carolina or Florida state would you believe him? I’m willing to think no. You believe him only because he went to Clemson. That is utterly ridiculous.

First, they’re not even the same thing.

Second, there’s really no science behind wearing a mask. Especially if it’s anything other than an N 95 mask. And they only work if worn properly and in certain situations and only to a certain degree.

Third, people aren’t wearing masks in Europe, or on airplanes in Europe, and in most of America other than a handful of blue states people aren’t wearing a mask. There are some places that still require it but it’s all about compliance. They’ll give you a one size fits all mask that’s practically falling off your face and doing absolutely nothing. It’s kabuki theater to see if they can get you to comply.

Last, but not least, wearing a mask in a restaurant is absolutely beyond absurd. You wear it to walk to the table or the restroom, but sit down for an hour eating a meal without the mask? I hope people like you didn’t graduate from Clemson because you’re not very intelligent. You’re brainwashed.

Actually, it is exactly the same thing. A business has the right to set rules within it’s property. Remember “no shirt, no shoes, no service”? While I tend to agree with your personal opinion on masks, it is just that. Our opinion. If a business wants to limit their clientele by saying a jacket is required that is up to them. If a business wants to say we won’t serve you without a mask, or even say we won’t serve you if you are wearing a mask, a private business should have that right.

requirements. A lot of people objected to the government over-reach, not the specific restaurant. Additionally if government is requiring all restaurants to follow a policy, people don't then have choice. If a restaurant wants to keep the policy absent a government mandate, so be it and people should honor the request or go elsewhere.

Let's hope that Grady gets past his sense of embarrassment and doesn't turn this into an Oprah moment.

Most of us have made a mistake from time to time when out for some fine dining with respect to the dress code.


For example, as a treat to my wife, I took her to Chik-Fil-A instead of Hardees for a fine meal.

Chik-Fil-A manager said that my wife was attired properly, but that the thong on me was inappropriate.

I was mad; thought they were discriminating against me because I am a bit over weight (~ 450 lb.)

I had to go out to the car and come back with a blanket wrapped around my money-maker.

All was fine after that, had a meal of Waffle Fries and 4 milkshakes.

No problem.

Think about all the time and money Clemson puts into the “Call Me Mr.” program. They buy these guys suits to wear to road games. He knows he should be wearing a nice outfit to go to a high-end restaurant. He’s even wearing tennis shoes. I mean seriously. You don’t get into any nice restaurant wearing shorts, shirt without a collar, tennis shoes, etc. and it doesn’t matter if it cost $10 at Walmart or $500 in a Gucci store. A sweatsuit is still a sweatsuit.

I lived in Buckhead for years and drive past the development every day. That Spanx sign is actually where the corporate HQ for Spanx is located. The development that the restaurant is in was supposed to be the Rodeo Drive of the east coast when it was designed, but construction stopped for years during the Great Recession and another developer came in and finished it up later. It’s still considered high end, but it’s been a challenge keeping the high end tenants happy.

In some senses, the development IS (like you called it) a mall - at least in terms of the clientele it attracts. That’s where the dress code for the restaurants comes in, and these codes have been in place for years now. The Buckhead locals who live nearby and can afford to shop there aren’t inclined to do so, or eat in the nice restaurants with people wearing jeans halfway down their ### or sweat suits (no matter how expensive) like the one that Jarrett was wearing. The restaurant owners expect people to dress nicely and appropriately for a high-end restaurant (which La Bilboquet is) and everyone who goes there should know that by now. If he had been dressed in normal looking attire when he drove up in his Rolls Royce, this would have been a non-issue and he knows it.

Jarrett SHOULD have been embarrassed, but because of that ridiculous looking clown suit he was wearing. He was dressed very appropriately for the Shake Shack right around the corner, and I’m sure they would have gladly served him.

Twice in my life I’ve made the mistake of not adhering to restaurant dress code. I wore a dress shirt, but not the required jacket.
1). Had to leave.
2). They had a jacket to lend.

Both were courteous, but sternly stood with their guidelines.

Now if Mr Grady looked out into the restaurant and saw others in “sweats”, that’s another story. It’s irrelevant that his brand was Gucci.

A track suit--even if the label is Gucci---is still a track suit. I personally would not deem that as "appropriate" attire for that particular restaurant.

As to consistency, in that case I would agree with Jarrett--if there is a dress code, then enforce it consistently---or don't enforce it at all.

I thought about writing a comment saying that this guy is just whining bc he has a platform and should have dressed more appropriately.

Then I thought about writing a comment about how racial profiling still happens and he could potentially be a victim.

Then I realized I wasn’t there, and I don’t have the facts, so my opinion is not useful in this case…

What people spend their money on today is amazing.

And in case no one‘s paying attention he’s also wearing tennis shoes. That very easily could’ve been and probably was part of the dress code violation.

I’ve been to high-end strip clubs, nice seafood and steak houses, etc. that don’t let you in wearing a T-shirt, sweatsuit, shorts, jeans, tennis shoes, any shirt without a collar, etc.

And it’s total BS when people play the race card. When people say it is racist. Go back to the 1960s or anytime before that and show me people that didn’t dress nice. Suits and ties and hats. Including black people like everyone in polite society used to dress. This is not black culture. This is very new. This is a modern thing where people, all people, but especially people of color, think that if they have money and status they can dress like or do whatever they want. I’m sorry, but society has standards.

In today's world of instant notifications via phones, it would have easy for Jarrett to snap a picture of the patron he said was dressed in a similar manner. That restaurant sounds like a place we will pass up.

You yourself commented that it would be very easy today with a cell phone for him to provide proof of his side of the story. The fact that he did not makes me believe the restaurant over in Grady.

In today’s political climate these are very serious accusations. To make such an accusation without any evidence or proof, which today with a cell phone is very easy to provide, is highly inappropriate.

And again, it’s not just the sweatsuit. He’s in tennis shoes.

I was at biz meeting in ATL, then biz dinner with 15 persons going to that 5* restaurant on top of Bank of America building. A guy in our group (white), forgot his jacket and was declined being seated. This restaurant could have potentially lost $5k in sales if we had taken a personal issue and all left. FYI, there were persons of different ethnicities in our group. Also there were a couple of Braves players in there with their partners, dressed in appropriate attire that had no issues. Fortunately our comrade had left his jacket in his vehicle but had to get Valet to retrieve before being seated.

Just an example of being refused service due to attire and wasn't racially motivated. I remember our meal was amazing but the "Caesar Salad" was superb. It was al La Carte dining and they made the dressings in front of you. This is when I learned that Caesar dressing had mashed anchovies as they made in a large wooden bowl.

That said, no one in our party had to make an issue of this on Social Media. Our new world feels the need to create controversy when none should be!

But the manager of the restaurant said they relaxed the attire requirements during the pandemic, so not sure when pic was taken or if it is under new management. Either way, if there is a dress code then so be it. Comply or leave, pretty simple.
