Some folks are going to say I'm a bad mother. I like to think that I'm creative and doing my best to nurture a budding Chowhound.
My 11yo son watches Chuck Hughes (and a few other Food Network shows) religiously. He's a big fan of Martin Picard too and we've been there several times. Now he wants to eat at Garde Manger. We've seen the episode where Chuck cooks for his niece and nephew, mentioning that the restaurant is usually not available to children. I've googled the restaurant and found that there are several parking lots nearby. My question: what about getting to the restaurant early with a reservation, parking at the lot right next door and getting the food to eat in the car? I could bring my own plates and "pay-as-we-eat". Or does Garde Manger do take out?
Would appreciate any advice.
