No ketchup for you!

Chef bans ketchup Chef bans ketchup

A chef in Fort Myers, Florida is refusing to let customers in his restaurant use ketchup.

The chef at "Mad Fresh Bistro" has banned the popular condiment.

He doesn't even keep ketchup in his restaurant.

Born in New York City and raised in France, Xavier Duclos spent two years studying fine French cuisine and says he wants people to trust his cooking capabilities, "Worst I ever had was a woman who pulled Parmesan cheese and ketchup out of her bag and I said don't do that. She never came back."

Duclos says since he opened his restaurant two years ago, he's built a base of customers who like his rules.

He says if you like it, you eat it and if you don't, then you don't have to come back.
