Family-Friendly Dining In Chicago

In light of the national debate that Alinea sparked earlier this month over the controversial subject of children in restaurants, 4-Star Restaurant Group wants to remind Chicago that it is built on a foundation that embraces the value of family dining at its core.

“When you eat at a 4-Star restaurant, you know your whole family is welcome,” said 4-Star partner Josh Rutherford.  “Not only do we endorse the viewpoint of dining with your children, but at our restaurants, we tailor the entire experience towards appealing to kids and parents alike – without compromising on quality.  We want people to feel as comfortable as they would in their own home.”

To that end, 4-Star Restaurant Group has incorporated several “family-friendly” attributes into their line of seven Chicagoland restaurants ( Crosby’s Kitchen, Frasca Pizzeria & Wine Bar, Dunlays on Clark, Dunlays on the Square, D.O.C. Wine Bar Lincoln Park, D.O.C. Wine Bar Lombard, and The Smoke Daddy.   These characteristics have helped 4-Star restaurants become neighborhood staples over the last 10 years, leading to increased business that ranges from the local community to global celebrities (e.g., PINK dined at Crosby’s Kitchen and Frasca earlier this month with her daughter based on recommendations for their family-friendly qualities).

4-Star’s family-friendly programs and attributes include:

  • Kids Eat Free every day (from 4 pm to 6 pm) at Crosby’s Kitchen, both Dunlays, and Frasca
  • Stroller Valet and extra-wide (stroller sized) doors at Crosby’s Kitchen
  • Kiddie sinks in the bathrooms and communal sinks in the main dining room at Crosby’s Kitchen
  • Kids Pizza-making classes at Frasca
  • Custom pizzas, pasta, salads and more off the kids menu at Fraca
  • Drinks and ice cream included with all kids meals at Frasca
  • Holiday decorations and events at all restaurants
  • Signature Skillet Cookie (for family-sharing) at Crosby’s Kitchen, Frasca, both Dunlays and The Smoke Daddy
  • Family brunch on weekends at The Smoke Daddy, Crosby’s Kitchen, Frasca and both Dunlays
  • Gluten free options at all restaurants
  • Sensitivity toward food allergies, will custom-make any menu items at any restaurant

There’s no better time to dine with the family at a 4-Star restaurant than this February for the annual “Fall in Love with 4-Star” campaign.   From February 1st to February 28th, the promotion rewards guests with 20% off their bill whenever they return to dine (for brunch, lunch or dinner) at any 4-Star restaurant. To be applicable for the Fall in Love with 4-Star discount, you must first dine at a 4-Star restaurant anytime in February (2014) at regular price, then present that original receipt upon your next visit to any other 4-Star restaurant during the same month.  The discount is valid for dine-in orders only and can be repeated as many times as you like throughout the month of February.
