|Yes, that's a bird above his head.|
|Feeding the Lorikeets|
We're getting hungry after all that bird-feeding and trying to think of a kid-friendly option while loading the car on the north side isn't coming easy. I can think of a whole bunch of spots that I'd like to wander into, but with BigBrother and BabyGray in tow, ain't no way. There was a time when they would eat whatever we put in front of them, but right now - as every parent dreads - they're in the (use your best child whiney voice) "I don't liiiiike it" phase where everything's taste value is based on how it looks to a 3 year old. And they're hungry and tired. Awesome. Find some pizza. Fast.
|Double Dip French Fries|
We walk in during that weird time between lunch and dinner. Winning - there are other kids in the restaurant. Losing - you can't get the dinner menu for another 40 minutes. Pizza: the goal is pizza, stay focused! But pork belly, cassoulet, and truffle whipped potatoes... ah, there's the kids' menu.
To start: Double Dip French Fries (w/ parm, truffle oil, garlic aioli) & a Caesar salad
Me: Bianca Pizza (Fig, goat cheese, truffle oil, arugula)
the Kids: Pepperoni & Plain Pizza
It was a simple and casual meal, down to the lemonade. The food was good, the restaurant itself was so bright and open, and everything was tasty. I'll be honest, the big win here is the kids menu. There aren't tons of choices that have great menus and kids menus. I mean, my kids will order the cobia or lobster tails if offered, but sometimes I just want them have pizza and lemonade.
