Hi Chowhounds,

My three-year-old son is obsessed with cooking (I wonder where he gets it). He plays chef all day long, and two of his earliest words were spatula and tongs. We love to go to diners where we can hang out at the counter and watch a short-order cook work their magic. Does anybody have an idea of a nicer restaurant where we could do something similar (eat at a counter or table with a view of the chefs cooking)? Obviously, with a little kid like this, it would need to be somewhere not TOO fancy, or too fussy, since he is a well-behaved three-year-old, but that's not saying much... One thought I had was Sportello, but i think they only have backless stools at that counter, and he might get too excited and fall off backwards.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
