Top Kid-Friendly Restaurants

The Top 75 Kid-Friendly Restaurants in the US

Earlier this week, restaurant reservation site OpenTable announced its 2012 diners' choice award winners for the top 75 kid-friendly restaurants in the country. The list reflects the responses of some five million reviews submitted by active OpenTable users, and the most popular cuisine for kiddies was found to be Italian and American. "These winning restaurants are creating a child- and family-friendly dining experience that has more to do with food and fun than merely price and portion size," says Caroline Potter, OpenTable's chief dining officer. "They offer inventive menus that can satisfy any child, from those with picky palates to adventurous young eaters — as well as mom and dad."
