Birthday catering idea--food we had when we were young

digger31 | May 5, 2007 12:29 AM

My wife's birthday is coming up and I had an idea of reminding her of her youth by taking her to places with food we had as kids--ie hot dogs, fun desserts, etc--but with an adult palate (ie, mac n' cheese with Lobster). Any suggestions? Doesn't have to be one place. Here's what I came up with:

Luna Park
Ketchup (they have sloppy joes)
Pink's
Simon LA -- for their desserts
Violet--for mac n' cheese (unless you can think of a place that has better mac n' cheese
Melting Spot -- grilled cheese sandwhiches
Sprinkles/Yummies--cupcakes

Any other ideas?
