Dinner Category

The experience Today when Ogre asked me about dinner, I remembered that on Tuesday it’s Kids Eat Free.  It was Tuesday, so we set out to find the nearest Applebee’s.  After getting a little lost, we finally happened upon it.  We were seated right away and noticed a lot of tables with kids.

The experience I was Mina’s chauffeur again this evening driving a ways to her hula class.  Ogre and I decided we’d meet after her class and thought that our plan a couple weeks ago to meet halfway would work again, so we decided on the El Chico right by the Bone Daddy’s we went to [...]

Dim Sum at Maxim’s

In: 3 stars, Chinese, Dim Sum, Dinner, Lunch, Richardson

The experience We decided it would be fun to do Dim Sum today.  We were getting a somewhat late start, so we were worried about the crowds.  We decided on Maxim’s, which seems to be the other place to get Dim Sum around here (Kirin Court being the other, but I’ll admit that I like [...]

Summer Night at Bangkok City

In: 3 stars, Dallas, Dinner, Lunch, Thai

The experience I decided that I wanted Thai food tonight, and I wanted Thai food that I know I like.  I offered up either Royal Thai or Bangkok City.  Ogre chose Bangkok City, we ate here pretty frequently when Ogre lived off Lower Greenville before we got married and had all these kids!   Ogre ended [...]

Not so Prima Primavera’s

In: 2 stars, Dinner, Italian, Lunch, Plano

The experience We used the iPhone again to choose dinner.  We drove over not recalling ever seeing this restaurant, but we had a back up plan in place.  Luckily, we did find it and strolled over.  The kids immediately noticed a frozen yogurt place called “Spoonful” and were already making plans to eat there after [...]

The experience I got home and Ogre apparently had decided on dinner already with the help of his iPhone.  We would be going to Houston’s.  Fine by me, I love Houston’s!  It is a little pricey though, but whatever, I’d been wanting to go there for childsplate anyway.  We drove out to the one near Addison [...]

The experience Grace suggested this evening that I go eat with my dad since she couldn’t make it.  I said OK, but why?  She mentioned my mom was out of town.  I had no idea.  So when my dad arrived to pick up Mina as pre-planned, I asked about it.  They were going to go [...]

Deja Vu at Chang Jin

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Korean, Lunch, Richardson

The experience I have been thinking about this “new” Korean restaurant in Richardson where many of my other favorite Asian restaurants are so when Ogre and Mina brought up Korean food, it immediately came to mind.  Ogre suggested some other restaurants in Dallas, but Benji has been a bad mood ALL day, so I thought [...]

The experience So today I’d be going alone to dinner after taking Mina to her hula class.  Benji would be along for the ride. Grace claimed there were no restaurants in the area so I figured I be out of luck eating near the class.  On the ride over I saw about 10 restaurants to [...]

The experience I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant that was suggested to me by a colleague for quite some time and decided tonight was the night to do it!  After all, we are coming up on our last month of childsplate!  I had to wait for Benji to awaken from his nap before rounding [...]

About Child's Plate

Childsplate.com chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
