    Talking Either

    Hi, everybody!
    I have some doubts regarding a text I am reading. Hope you can help me.
    It reads:

    "As I entered the restaurant I observed too many waiters and plush seats for my liking. You can't eat either, but you can be charged for them."

    I was wondering if the second sentence "You can't eat either..." means:
    1) You can't eat the waiters and you can't eat the seats but you can be charged for them.
    Or
    2) You may not eat in the restaurant, but you can be charged anyway as it has too many waiters and elegant seats.

    First, I thought it was the first option. Then, the second one popped into my mind and now, I'm not sure! What do you think?
    Thanks in advanced :)

    Your first option is correct.
