This one: Tips for dining out with kids: My husband and I recently went out to dinner with my sister-in-law, her fiance, my mother-in-law, her husband, and my 3-year-old son. We went to a relatively fancy restaurant and we went prepared. We went prepared to take walks with our son outside around the building after ordering and between courses. We went prepared to get our food packed up and to leave if our son couldn't last through a grown-up dinner. We went prepared with snacks if he got hungry waiting for the appetizers to arrive. As it turned out, the outside walks did the trick. Our son lasted the whole evening without even the slightest of whines. He politely and maturely ate his way through from bread to dessert and blew a kiss to the waitress as we left. It probably didn't hurt that we practice "Restaurant Manners" with him at brunch buffets on the weekends.
Yay Genevieve!!!! E-mail me your address and you'll get a prize!
I LOVE Tom's chats... even though I hardly ever eat out anymore.
I love them too and seldom get to eat at any of his reviewed restaurants.APL, I did get to 2971 (2791?) in Falls Church last year. Absolutely fabulous. Have you been?
Yay, a prize!! I'll email you, Liz. And congrats on Muffin Man's good Restaurant Manners!Mmm, I keep meaning to try that place (2941, maybe?). I'm assuming it's not kid-friendly and therefore not good for this weekend for Fathers' Day. For DH's birthday we went (sans kid) to Colvin Run Tavern, which was just lovely.
OK, I'm feeling dumb -- can't figure out where on your site to find your email address. (Had that trouble somewhere else, too -- something about Blogger?)
You're my hero, Liz.
Hey genevieve! I'm liz at millerhousehold dot com. I thought that my email thing was listed, but I guess not.....
