The Ted Cruz protest at the restaurant was a massive fail. Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi were chased out by protesters while eating their meal according to a video posted. However, that was not the full truth.
According to the Restaurant manager they escorted Ted Cruz and his wife to a safe place called the cops and removed the protesters. Once protesters were removed Ted Cruz and his wife sat back down with their food and continued their meal.
“Last night, protesters entered Fiola with the apparent purpose of confronting one of our guests. Recognizing there was a potential for escalation, our stellar management team immediately defused the situation.”
“Per our policy for events of this nature, police were called and the guest escorted to privacy,” chef and owner Fabio Trabocchi said. “When the situation resolved a few minutes later, our guests returned to thank the staff for their support and to finish their exceptional meal.
“The FT group welcomes all patrons and is proud of its reputation not just of culinary excellence, but also for creating a welcoming space for all, irrespective of creed, ideology or opinion. Chef Fabio believes politics – like elbows – are best left off the dining table, and we welcome everyone’s.”
