When you are a working mom, preparing dinner as soon as you get home can be a challenge. I admit, I do enjoy going out once in a while. Thank goodness for Taco Tuesday specials at our local area restaurants! But here’s something even better – Toddler Tuesday deals at Five Crowns and Side Door in Corona Del Mar. Starting at 4:30pm, you can bring the whole family to the Corona del Mar institution and actually enjoy a meal WITH your kids at a fine dining restaurant!
They’ve set aside the patio and garden area for families with kids on Tuesdays! There’s even a complimentary stroller valet for the wee little ones.
My monsters are bigger but we still enjoyed the chill vibe on the patio. We recognized some of the diners and the place was conducive for chatting. There were some kids running around the garden area too. And it was all good.
As was my special cocktail called “Tranquilo Mi Hijo” – it had ginger beer and tequila. The hubster enjoyed the Prime Rib Plate. My big boy had the rich and delicious Stilton Mac N Cheese.
…While my younger son was all over the Kid-approved $5 menu. Of course, he got the chicken fingers!
The staff was amazing too! The patio and garden are open seating and no reservations are required. So if you want a break from the ordinary work week, treat yourselves to a stress-free, kid-friendly, family–friendly dinner at Five Crowns/Side Door in Corona Del Mar on Tuesday nights, 4:30pm – 8pm.
