Remember before the kids arrived, you and your partner would sling back a couple of cosmos over steamed mussels at Palace Kitchen and swear to each other that your life would always be like this, even after you had children (giggle, giggle)? And then what happened? If you’re anything like us, your Big Night Out now involves burgers and buttered noodles. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But we would like to invite you to rediscover your lost Bon Vivant and give you the opportunity to bring great restaurants back into your life.

Red Tricycle and Future Foodies of America have partnered to organize a series of monthly family nights at some of Seattle’s best restaurants. The first three evenings will be hosted by Tilth, Cremant, and TASTE Restaurant.

The Family Dining Series offers an opportunity to enjoy a great meal, introduce your kids to new food and do it in a totally welcoming environment surrounded by other families without feeling like a pariah when your two-year-old knocks over a glass of water.

Future Foodies of America, created by former Seattle P-I food editor Hsiao-Ching Chou, is a new social network for parents who believe in the imperative of teaching their children to have a holistic relationship with food that is as much about pleasure as it is about healthfulness and nutrition.

Red Tricycle subscribers and Future Foodies members can make reservations on a first-come, first-served basis at the following restaurants for seatings between 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm.

Additional high chairs, booster seats and bumbo seats will be available courtesy of Cry Baby Comforts.
