Oz restaurant owner tells diner mums to ‘keep their legs closed’

Melbourne, July 23 (ANI): A Darwin restaurant owner is facing flak over suggesting a group of mothers that they “keep their legs closed” after one of them brought her 11-week-old baby to his eatery.

He then accused one woman of having “saggy tits” and suggested another had a “floppy c…”.

However, Tramontana restaurant owner John Spellman refused to discuss the incident with the Northern Territory News.

When asked about the matter, he said: “Who cares,” reports News.com.au.

Health worker Katie, 35, who asked not to have her surname published, said she booked the dinner for five women - including a mother with a newborn - on Wednesday night at the exclusive 1.7 million dollar Italian restaurant.

“I rang in the morning to make sure we could bring a pram, because some places you can’t. As we walked out, he yelled out ‘you ladies better keep your legs together or you will end up like your friend,’” she said.

Public servant Amy, 27, was also with the group and confronted Spellman about his comments.

“He went on about how he had two women in his establishment with babies, and he thought he was on best behaviour, considering the other woman started breast feeding,” she said.

“When I called him a bastard, he said my friend had saggy tits. And I probably had a floppy ‘c’. He actually used the word,” she said.

Spellman gained worldwide attention earlier this year when he charged patrons 10 dollars for wearing thongs. (ANI)
