Out to Eat: South End Kitchen

Going out to dinner with kids can be complicated. On more than one occasion, when our daughter and son were younger, my husband, Jeff, and I attempted to go out for a nice family meal and left the restaurant shaking our heads. "It's not worth it," we agreed.

But now that the kids are a little older — Mira is 7, Theo is 4 — and we're mostly past the throwing food, spilling drinks and not-being-able-to-sit-in-their-seats-for-more-than-5-minutes phase, we're emboldened to dine out a bit more. 

When I found out that South End Kitchen, one of my favorite new Burlington spots, has a Saturday night deal where kids eat free with the purchase of an adult meal, I was raring to go.

Jeff and I had both enjoyed dinner at South End Kitchen sans kids before. The café is open until 9 p.m.,  Wednesday through Saturday, and has different summer dinner specials each night — including pasta, barbecue and burgers — in addition to the regular menu. The last time I went, I had what was — hands down — the best eggplant parmigiana I've ever had: a slab of breaded eggplant cooked to crispy perfection atop a delicious plate of pasta.
