FORT MYERS, Fla. – A Florida chef has banned the use of one of America’s favorite condiments at his restaurant.

“Mad Fresh Bistro” in Fort Myers, Fla., refuses to serve ketchup to anyone older than 10, according to Yahoo.

A statement on the restaurant’s website reads, “We know, we know. People love their ketsup. But honestly, be ready. If you’re over 10 years old, ketchup will NOT be provided. Similarly, salt won’t be making an appearance next to your meal, either. We simply ask that you trust us. We know what we’re doing! Part of the MAD experience is to trust the chef, and not have preconceived notions of what your dish is going to need.”
