As kids head out of school for the summer, OpenTable is thrilled to announce the 100 winners of the 2011 Diners’ Choice Awards for Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants in the U.S. The list of winners is derived from more than ten million reviews submitted by OpenTable diners for more than 12,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The state of California boasts 26 winning spots on the list, including 13 in the San Francisco vicinity alone — a boon for Bay Area babies and their parents. The Midwest is also best, with Illinois and Minnesota claiming 12 spots each. Massachusetts and New York earned 11 and 12 nods, respectively. Other stand-out states include Pennsylvania and Ohio, as well as Washington D.C. Winners also represented Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, New Jersey, and Rhode Island, among others. Italian fare proved popular with families, with a strong showing from Buca di Beppo restaurants as well as Manhattan favorites Carmine’s 91st Street and Carmine’s Midtown, as well as several others.
Use this list of winners as a surefire way to find a great meal for every member of your family.
Kudos to all the winning restaurants!
