One other point, if you ate at a restaurant and it made you sick, who you going to call?
I would call the manager first, and the city inspector second.
Places that serve food occupy different regulatory environment. They are heavily regulated, regularly inspected and must be open for inspection at any time. They can have significant health impacts on a community.
If a restaurant made people sick on a regular basis, they would be closed down. That is just part of the cost and risk of doing business.
We can argue that we do not have enough inspectors, but most people on this blog are real happy with the low level of city oversight.
So, to me, the smoking ban is just one more effort to make food establishments safer for the community.
