Giraffe sticks its neck out

By Simon Round, May 29, 2008

Chicago Rib Shack owner Jon Yantin received a roasting from rivals Giraffe after innocently suggesting on our Business page that his place, unlike Giraffe, was not a children’s restaurant. Giraffe director Andrew Jacobs so overreacted that he sent in his PRs demanding corrections, and even prevailed on Yantin to apologise and send the JC a letter stating that Giraffe was actually a “family restaurant”.

We note that, after last week’s attempted bomb attack on Giraffe’s Exeter branch, the Daily Mirror front-page headline screamed: “Suicide bomb in kids’ cafe”. Over to you, Mr Jacobs.
