Restaurant owner turns to Twitter to name no-show diners Modified: March 26, 2013 at 11:57 am •  Published: March 26, 2013

It must be frustrating when people don’t show up for appointments or reservations.

But should you resort to publicly shaming them on social media? This restaurant owner did.

LA Eater reports that Noah Ellis, operator of Red Medicine restaurant, sent out a series of tweets this weekend, chastising no-show diners.

“It’s always been a problem here (at the restaurant and in LA as a whole), but it’s tricky — those restaurants that overbook to protect themselves punish the guests who show up on time for their reservations, but not the people who no-show,” Ellis told LA Eater.
