I'm turning 40 in October and my family (who aren't too up to date on restaurants) want to help celebrate my birthday. My parents live about an hour north of Montgomery, AL (Stillwaters) and my sister and her family are near Prattville. In addition to Montgomery we could easily go to Prattville or Auburn. We do need a kid friendly (ages 2 and 4 - well behaved) environment.
So I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for fabulous food fit for a 40th celebration? I'm from D.C. so I have pretty good access to ethnic foods here. Therefore, I'd be especially interested in BBQ, seafood, or Southern style cooking. That said, there is almost no style of food I don't like so I'm open to any ideas.
Thanks for putting your thinking caps on about this one.
