    Got a Facebook request from a friend for a good kid-friendly restaurant downtown (near the Convention Center) for a 5th birthday party. Sad to say it’s been too long since I’ve been downtown (other than for a court appearance that sadly didn’t allow much time for seeing what has changed in the area). Any suggestions?

    Heh. Depends on how large the party is going to be, and what kinds of foods the kids are into. ;)

    I’d look for any spot that can accommodate a large group of any age if they need a private room.

    Or, if they want to go nontraditional… hitting up the North Market could be fun. Pizza from Sarefino’s and dessert from Destination Donuts or Jeni’s? ;)

    You’re so close to the Arena District. I’d say Buca Di Beppo. They can handle large parties, kids menu, and it’s easy.

    My kids are annoyingly picky but love Rodizo in the Arena District. The show aspect, they get to chose the food they want, and almost no waiting. Plus kids 11 and under are pretty cheap.

    Bar Louie has a good kids menu. May be able to get the upstairs space depending on day/time, etc.

    Not to be a zealot about it… but I’d recommend something local and unique over a chain.

    Dick’s last resort, though a chain, would be fun for the kids.

    Not so subtle urban liberal post.

    Max & Erma’s is right there as well. Buca and probably Mongolian bd’s could accommodate larger groups as well.

    Ah forgot about Max and Erma’s. Good call.

    Northstar Cafe is easy and delicious. Hubbard Grille and Forno are all good options with private areas that don’t seem too isolated.

    Ha, I was like “this poster is being very casual and upfront about the fact that they have a court appearance”. Then I saw it was you.

    Does Superchefs still have a location downtown? I’ve been to the one in Gahanna and the superhero theme and good breakfasts would be a hit with any kid.

    Mongolian Grille would be fun for kids, pick out their meal and watch dudes with big “swords” cook it up.

    Yeah kid version of me would dig that. Heck Grown up does too sometimes
