When you have kids, a dinner out in a time crunch doesn’t always have to be a not so healthy drive-thru option. Sometimes the thought of entering a nice sit-down restaurant with waitstaff service isn’t viable either because at least when my son is hungry, he’s totally happy and then all of a sudden he’s in major meltdown mode. Then you are screaming at each other to just find food, while your kid wants macaroni and cheese, but you’d like Chinese and your husband wants Indian food.
I was recently hosted for dinner with a few other bloggers at Noodles and Company where we sampled a variety of their appetizers, entrees and desserts. At Noodles and Company you’ll get a meal worthy of an expensive sit-down dinner, without the wait, but in a kid-friendly atmosphere. The Noodles and Company menu includes dozens of dishes that have Italian, Thai, Asian and American inspiration.
I am not an adventurous eater, I usually find something safe and stick with it. Boring. I know, it’s just the way I tend to be. That is until I have opportunities like this, because I can venture outside my typical comfort zone and try something new. Not only is Noodles and Company fantastic about accommodating for food allergies, their menu is so unique there is something to satisfy everyone. Some locations have beer and wine available.
Noodles and Company originated in Colorado and is nationwide, but here in the Boston area, we have several locations including Shrewsbury, MA, Burlington, MA and Nashua, NH.
