Bouchonné with kids?

We are looking for a tapas style/small portion place where we can go with our 5 year old. Are places like Bouchonné and Montait de Lait ok with kids? Any other suggestions (besides Pinxto and Casa Tapas, which we love, but want to try something new). Thanks!

      Excellent--thanks for this link! Gives us a few other options, too.

    2. Well, I disagree with Cheryl. Sorry Cheryl - still love me??

      I wouldn't bring my 5 year old son there. That's not to say that they won't accomodate kids, but I just wouldn't. It didn't seem like a "kid" place.

        Yes, maisonbistro, I still love you...(and I owe you and kpzoo a DVD - one of these days...). But almost every time I've been to Bouchonne, there have been kids of varying ages there. For a kid who is a moderately adventurous eater (ie - not just chicken fingers, fries and burgers) there is likely something for them on the menu. And they are treated well there. Certainly for someone who brings their child to CC+P, I wouldn't hesitate to bring them to Bouchonne.

          I know what maisonbistro means, but I think you are reading us right cheryl. We really do love to eat well, and have always brought our daughter with us to all different kinds of establishments, so she is relatively well-behaved and willing to try most anything. We don't need booster seats or chicken nuggets--we justdon't want to take her to a restaurant where they will ignore her or roll their eyes when they see her coming!
