Gruner

We have to admit, we have been here before without the dudes and thought it was time they try it. What we weren’t expecting was just how much they were into it! The beet pickled deviled eggs were a no brainer – we were lucky we got any ourselves! But they devoured the Maulteschen (hope I spelled that right) and the sausage. They weren’t into my lamb, and I can’t blame them. If you come here getimage the sausage. My lamb was fine, but I could have just eaten the deviled eggs and sausage for dinner and been in heaven. Then came the Berliners, they used to be jelly-filled but they changed it to a cookie ganache. The boys were in a zone after one bite. Then there was the pretzel bread… For some reason, the dudes were intrigued by the architecture, and were also closely watching the filming of a Grimm outside. So they were enjoying the food and distracted. Win! As far as kid friendly goes, I wouldn’t take kids that aren’t used to waiting for their food any later than 5:30. They were courteous and treated the dudes well, but I got the impression that they don’t get a lot of 6 year olds in there.

Arnaud’s

Aidan ordered the fresh fish, and Lowell ordered the duck with blueberry sauce. They ended up trading but they loved it. The bacon wrapped deep-fried oysters were to die for along with the deviled eggs and pretty much everything else we ate. By far the best meal that we’ve had so far. The dudes wore their first suits to this family dinner, and only got a little bit of food all over them!!

Kachka

After going there alone we decided to go with friends and take the boys with us. We were not disappointed at all. It was festive, the service was outstanding, and we tried things we had never had before. Now, this is not a place to take kids that aren’t willing to try new things. We ordered the cold appetizer tasting menu for the table and it was outstanding – for the grown ups. Aidan and Lowell liked one out of five of the things that they tried. And they tried A LOT. They tried headcheese, pickled watermelon, pickled peppers, various smoked fish, lard wrapped around pickled cucumber with honey, dumplings with sour cherries, tiny smoked fish on pumpernickel toast, eggplant and walnut rolls, the list goes on. ,

Bluehour

It is the second time here for the guys. The caviar was the star of the show (college is overrated), and Kris delivered outstanding service and everyone was nice to the dudes. The people watching here is good, which Aidan and Lowell enjoy and helps us out too! The dudes had scallops, which they loved, but they really loved mom and dad’s pork tenderloin with Bing cherry sauce! We asked the guys what their favorite thing about Bluehour was. Aidan: the food. Lowell: the dessert. Mom and dad – all of the above. 20140710-183422-66862629.jpg
