The controversy began when “ProAbition” posted an online flier announcing its June 15 grand opening, the Press Enterprise reported.
Included in the restaurant’s dress code was a line that read, “Ladies: No flat shoes or sandals. Must have heels.”
The dress code did include an exception for injuries.
Even so, many women were not too happy about the rules and took to social media to express their feelings.
After numerous complaints, the restaurant softened it stance and issued the following statement.
“As a business, we pay very close attention to our guests’ feedback. We had been receiving feedback on all fronts. That’s when we decided maybe we need to re-adjust this and not be so strict about this one particular item.”
