Special Occasion Family Dinners

What's Your Affordable Family Go-To Spot For Special Occasions?

When you want to celebrate special occasions as a family, it's tough to find a kid-friendly place that offers affordable, good quality, and nutritious food. Kids need room to play or some form of entertainment in front of them. Otherwise, you might spend your whole meal nagging them to stop kicking their legs or behave (like an adult).

I remember as a kid begging my parents to go to Benihana on my birthday to watch the hibachi cook make an onion ring volcano steam and flip shrimp tails into his coat pocket. I loved seeing him scramble an egg on the hibachi flat top grill and perfectly pack the fried rice into bowls with dome tops. Even today, going to Benihana is a special treat — one that the Jolie-Pitt family enjoyed last night — especially since Benihana used to only offer adult-size portions. However, Benihana has recently released a kid's menu, making the final check a little easier to swallow.

We go to Benihana for New Year's Eve and birthdays every year! The kids love it, we love our options and the kids menu is really well priced.

It isn't really expensive until you throw in all the wine, but we love to get a room at Buca di Beppo because then we aren't bugging other diners with all of our kiddos!
