Hey! Look what I started...
There was a recent article in KC Magazine called "Family Dining With Kids" (January 2008 - p. 57 of the link). Their suggestions for eating out well with your kids in Kansas City? Crayola Cafe, Rain Forest Cafe, T-Rex Cafe, Fritz's, Papa Keno's and Avelluto's Italian Delight.
This pissed me off.
I don't buy into the belief that your dining-out life ends when you have kids. I believe that you can still go out and eat some pretty darn good food, with kids in tow. We do it often.
Anyway, my full rant is here: Chowhound
And I think I've hit a nerve - I have quite a few comments to the post. Take a look and chime in with your thoughts!
