I will be in Phx in about 10 days and we need a place for dinner that is kid friendly but not the usual bad food/kid crazy place. The kids are 5 and 8 so not little kids but still kidd-os. Someplace fun for everyone and again - decent food would be greatly appreciated as there are a few of us who are definitely foodies! We will be staying near Scottsdale mall and although I'm from Phx and familiar with the whole city we don't want to travel too terribly far.
And I'll add that I'm from Seattle and the rest of the family is from Minneapolis if that matters - on the NW Chowhound board we like to know that kind of thing!
If you can come up with anything for me - thank you, thank you, thank you!
