…or so it seemed having had such bland, unimpressive food for days on end. We had to eat breakfast at the buffet at the resort and after a grueling trip to the airport from our resort, we settled into the food court at the Punta Cana airport.  My initial plan was to eat at an [...]

The only options we had for “a la Carte” dinner on Sunday night was Mexican or Italian.  We were not going to choose Mexican…come on, we’re from Texas!  So we rolled the dice with Il Capriccio.  Unfortunately, I lost. The appetizers/starters are set up at a buffet.  They have a little bar to make your [...]

About Child's Plate 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!
