Pregnant Victoria Beckham Refused Menu Substitution, Gordon Ramsey OutragedDanielle Sullivan
Did you have food aversions throughout your pregnancy? Some women do and cannot eat certain foods they previously used to love for the entire nine months.
It’s easy enough to stay away from foods that don’t agree with you at most establishments- just substitute the offensive food for another and all is well.
But pregnant Victoria Beckham was unable to have a food substitution at the restaurant Gjelina in Venice, CA, and fellow Brit and chef extraordinaire Gordon Ramsey is enraged about it.
The posh mom wasn’t requesting anything extravagant, reports FitPerez.com. She simply wanted a change to a salad. Ramsey thinks the refusal was uncalled for:
“The lady’s pregnant! No one is asking to be fussy… I still think that’s the customer’s prerogative… It was a sour note. I don’t think customers should be treated that way. That might not be the way I choose to eat it, but that’s what the customer wants.”
In defense of Gjelina, they do state on their menu “changes & modifications politely declined” but you would think a change to salad would not be a big deal, especially when the person asking is visibly pregnant, not to mention Victoria Beckham.
Do you think the restaurant was out of line? Or was Beckham asking for special treatment?
