Age Appropriate: 5 and up
Hi, I’m Juliette! My husband, my 7-year-old and I love going out to eat and we are sharing our restaurant finds with you.
This is not our usual review this week. We have been working on good table manners with our son for a couple of weeks in order to go to Américas on West Gray. It is owned by the Cordua family who also owns Amazon Grill on Kirby. Amazon is one of our favorite restaurant (check out our review!) and is really good fpr young kids. But let’s go back to Américas!
We have been struggling with good manners and now that our son is 7, it is becoming increasingly frustrating to see him hunched over his plate, using his fingers to push his food on his spoon! Anyway, we have really tried to remind him that he needed to eat properly to go to Americas. He LOVES the tres leches cake there and that was a good motivator!
Americas is definitively more formal and the kids there were all over 5 (lunch is definitively more easygoing as an option). They do have a children menu with great options even though they did not offer it to us that night.
I have to say that it was the best paella I ever had. The rice was so good and all the ingredients melted in our mouth in perfect harmony. It was enough for all 3 of us and we had some leftover for a lunch.
Americas is a wonderful restaurant that you will enjoy with your family. The décor, wonderful food and friendly staff will make you feel welcome!
See you next week for another culinary adventure!
