Fidget spinners aren’t only being banned from schools

Eric Ripert, the executive chef and co-owner of legendary New York City restaurant Le Bernardin, posted on Twitter Tuesday that he had confiscated a fidget spinner in his restaurant’s kitchen. 

It’s not clear who exactly was playing with the toy, but Ripert is sending a clear message to the rest of his kitchen staff that toys and fancy food don’t mix.
