The experience Today is Mina’s afternoon to spend with her grandparents and it’s always a conundrum as to eating with or without her. At 5 o’clock, Benji started foraging for food in the kitchen requesting bagels, so i alerted Papa and said we’d better get going.  Luckily, Benji, my little food connoisseur was ready to go [...]

The experience We’re getting down to the nitty gritty, just a few short days and we’ll have eaten at 365 different restaurants over the last 365 days.  There are a couple of places that we’ve had recommended to us that we want to squeeze in, one of them being a Chinese Joint in Dallas.  We’ve [...]

Lunch at The Original

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Fort Worth, Lunch, Mexican

The experience I had the afternoon off today and we’ve been wanting to take the kids to Fort Worth.  One of our favorite places to go is the Japanese Gardens at the Fort Worth Arboretum.  We were actually up and going early enough to head out there.  Of course, a trip to Fort Worth typically [...]

The experience Today is extremely busy for us.  Started early with hula class followed by a birthday part y for Mina’s friend and then we needed to get home to nap before the circus tonight!  So this meant we needed to eat somewhere quick, close and easy!  Ogre’s suggestion: Taco Delite.  He has been trying [...]

Dinner at Sal’s

In: 3 stars, Dallas, Dinner, Lunch, Pizza, Plano

The experience Friday night.  I like to get pizza on Friday nights.  Don’t ask me why.  Even when we weren’t doing this everyday, I like to go out for pizza once a week.  Before we had Benji, we’d go to what was then Double Dave’s (now Chez Joey’s…but was Doughy Joey’s when Ogre reviewed it [...]

The experience Today we are celebrating Oma’s birthday since she will be out of town on her real birthday.  We had explicit instructions to be at The Shire at 6pm with birthday candle in hand.  Well, Team Phipps arrived about 15-20 minutes late as usual.  Not to mention that on the way to the restaurant, [...]

The experience Today Mina had a piano recital to which we all went to, including Grandpoo, Oma, Lolo and Lala.  She played beautifully and I thought we’d go out to dinner after.  Well, that plan fell apart pretty quickly as Lala and Lolo were leaving for Alaska the next morning, and our celebrant, Mina, decided [...]

Long Lunch at the Chart House

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Lunch, Seafood

The experience It was our last day of vacation and we decided that we head to the Kemah Boardwalk as it is on the way home.  We tried to eat lunch in Galveston, but the restaurant we chose was closed so we headed on to Kemah.  When we arrived and parked, we ate at the [...]

The experience After a crazy night spent at the local urgent care center for Ogre’s awful migraine, which left me driving back and forth across the island with kids in tow and put me in bed at 5am, I awoke wondering if I’d be going to the spa as planned with Adrienne.  She decided that [...]

The experience We went to the Galveston aquarium today, which by the way, was awesome.  Against Ogre’s better judgement, we decided to head straight from there to dinner.  It was 5 o’clock and we thought it would be fun to take the ferry to Crystal Beach where there was a seafood restaurant that caught Adrienne [...]

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!
