List highlights nearly 100 restaurants suited to foodie families traveling to Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.

As families hit the road and take to the skies on summer travels, OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations and part of The Priceline Group, recently unveiled the Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Top Summer Travel Destinations in America.

Featuring restaurants beloved by locals and visitors alike, the complete list highlights restaurants in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., including Little Goat in Chicago, M Street Kitchen in Santa Monica, and Le Diplomate in Washington, D.C. A to-dine list for families who love to explore the cities they visit through restaurants, this collection of eateries represents those that provide a welcoming atmosphere for children and their families in addition to food that pleases all palates. A multitude of cuisines are represented on the lists, including barbecue, Brazilian, dim sum, French, Japanese, seafood, and, naturally, perennial family favorite, Italian.

“These top kid-friendly rated restaurants appeal to every member of the family, from toddlers with adventurous taste buds to tweens and teens intent on Snapchatting their way through delicious vacation dining experiences – not to mention hungry parents in need of fine, fun fare and craft cocktails to refresh and recharge after sightseeing,” said Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. “Travelers of all ages can enjoy local flavors served against a backdrop of welcoming hospitality and an energetic atmosphere at any of these honorees.”

The Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Top Summer Travel Destinations in America list is generated from more than 1.4 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners between June 1, 2015, and May 31, 2016. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from each restaurant’s average rating in the “kid friendly” category.
