So why did Jessica Biel open a restaurant? It had to do with her anxiety about taking her baby son to a restaurant was the inspiration behind her new kid-friendly eatery, Au Fudge. She spoke to E! saying, “Since he’s so little still and I’m still kind of learning how I do it in a very smooth and like elegant way, it’s terrifying. You get to a place, you want to make sure the diners around you are not being bothered, you’re full of anxiety, you’re trying to go as fast as you can — you don’t enjoy it at all.

We just want you to feel stress free about it and know that they’re playing with things that are safe, that we don’t use chemicals here, that there’s not just a bunch of plastic everywhere and we’ve really tried to think very thoughtfully about your family because it’s our family, too.”
