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 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.

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 [...]

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 [...]

No Mommy at Masami

In: 3 stars, Dallas, Japanese, Richardson, Sushi

The experience Mommy was working this evening so it was dinner time with Papa and the kids.  Mina decided she wanted Japanese and I had no idea where to go.  I was headed to Richardson in the general direction of some Asian restaurants when I recalled a restaurant off of Belt Line.  So we pulled [...]

The experience Grandpoo and Oma invited us to the Mesquite Rodeo tonight complete with dinner before at Sonny Bryan’s Smokehouse…in the arena!  Grandpoo likes to get to places EARLY, which means that for the 6:30 dinner, we had to leave at 5:15, not too bad of an idea considering we would be driving at rush [...]

The experience The pickings are getting pretty slim in Plano for quick Tex Mex.  So, we add to venture to neighboring Richardson for dinner tonight.  I have heard some good things about Dos Charros, so we thought we’d give it a shot.  It was that restaurant or Amigos, but since we did not ever seen [...]

The experience Ogre has had a hankering for Del’s Charcoal Burgers for a few days now and planned to take Benji here for lunch a few days ago.  I’ve been working downtown the last few days and made plans to meet them for lunch.  Ogre called me and I made sure everyone was tucked in [...]

The experience Yesterday, we asked Mina where she wanted to eat before her Kindergarten graduation.  This is where I made a parenting error.  I did not give her choices, I left it open-ended.  Her reply?  “Silver Fox Steakhouse.”  Wha??  Ogre and I tried to redirect to cheaper other restaurants.  No go.  Silver Fox Steakhouse.  Well, [...]

The experience Benjamin fell asleep again right as dinner time rolled around, so we opted to leave him sleeping at Lala’s house while we ate dinner.  I have been wanting to got the Rose Tattoo Grille and Wine restaurant for some time.  I’ve been there a couple of times with my business partner and her [...]

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!
