For selfish reasons, we like it when parents take their children to ethnic restaurants because, hopefully, the young diners will like the food and patronize the places when they older thus keeping the restaurants in business for us to enjoy. So, we were dismayed when esteemed blog reader Tom B. emailed us yesterday and said that his family was turned away from Cairo Cafe because of the new smoking ban that just went into affect. Evidently, since Cairo Cafe allows hookah smoking, no one under 18 is allowed there anymore. That is such a pity.
