Our Restaurant Week contest giveaway continued Tuesday with a question about the most kid-friendly restaurants in Seattle. We’ll give a $50 gift certificate to a participating restaurant to the person whose answer gets the most “likes” on our Facebook page.
“You realize how Seattle is NOT a kid restaurant town when you consider how grown up EVERYWHERE feels,” said one commenter.
As with yesterday’s question, a lot of the usual suspects came up. There was Vios, one of the only restaurants so kid-friendly it had to make itself a little less so. (Mioposto in Mount Baker was another of those.) Tutta Bella, with its Wikki Stix, open kitchen, and welcoming attitudes, got early points on the list too, as did The Old Spaghetti Factory. Then came some of the newer candidates: Skillet Street Food won kudos for excellent kids food as well as the staff’s pleasant attitude. Pritty Boys Pizza in Madrona got a plug for an “awesome playspace.” Wild Fin in Renton and Issaquah got credit for “a ‘Junior’ menu which allows kids to order more sophisticated items in smaller portions and prices.” Votes also went to the Blazing Onion and its mix-your-own-soda machine, to Ivar’s on the waterfront, and, in one I wouldn’t have considered, fancy Palisade, because “it’s very spacious & the weekend brunch allows kids to try a variety of great food!”
The idea of taking kids out always sets off intense emotions in our “childless city,” and we had two non-restaurant recommendations as well: “My house! Grandma rules!” said the upbeat one, and “Uh…the daycare so I can go out and enjoy a great meal!” said the other.
