Revisiting the Kids Menu

If you’re guilty of perusing the kids menu or sneaking a bite or two from your child’s plate at dinner, you’re not alone! Kid-friendly classics like chicken tenders or mac and cheese don’t get any less delicious the older you get.

Today, we’re taking a look at the reasons why we love these simple dishes so much—as well as a few ways to enjoy grown-up versions of kids menu classics today!

Playful creations

One of the best parts of the kids menu is just how fun and playful the options can be. Snackable treats like chicken tenders or comfort food classics like and cheese bring us back to our own childhood days, and remind us that food can be fun as well as satisfying.

Comforting flavors

As we just mentioned, a big part of the kid menu fanfare has to do with our nostalgia for classic flavors. Young diners often have simpler palates, so menus that are crafted toward them hold a special appeal for adult diners who crave simplicity and traditional, familiar flavors.

Stonewood dishes with a creative twist

Kids menu picks are fun—but don’t be mistaken! You can enjoy the same level of creativity on your dinner plate today. At Stonewood, we have a few dishes that are especially likely to bring you back to a culinary mindset of simplicity and enjoyment at the dinner table. They include…

  • Bleu Cheese Chips: Think of our flavorful Bleu Cheese Chips as an alternative to the chips and nachos you munched on as a child. While the flavors at work here are far from simple (we prepare ours with a balsamic reduction and blue cheese aioli), the crunchy, snack-worthy sensation of eating them definitely is.
  • Blackened Chicken Pasta: Love traditional pasta or mac and cheese but want to try something with a little more “oomph?” Our Blackened Chicken Pasta is made with traditional bowtie pasta (a playful favorite common on kid-friendly plates), but features spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and a chardonnay cream that add a bit of flavorful interest.
  • Oak Grilled Cheeseburger: Next up, we have the cheeseburger—a classic treat on or off the kids menu. Ours is oak grilled to juicy perfection and is served on a brioche bun. Bonus: For a unique flavor explosion (one that will bring you back to the days when you colored outside the lines), don’t forget to enjoy the burgers on our Crafted Tuesdays! On these days, we share a one-of-a-kind rotating menu highlighted by chef-inspired picks like the Breakfast Burger, Cowboy Burger, and other creative combinations. For burger lovers who crave a side of whimsy with their meal, this is a must-do Stonewood event.

You might not order from the kids menu anymore, but you never have to give up the simple satisfaction of a tasty, handcrafted meal. Food should be fun to eat, and that’s something we here at Stonewood know best!
