About Me + Rating Guide

IMG_9766IMG_8815IMG_6486IMG_0540

Hi! My name is Simone (and that’s my Grandpa!).  You can find me wandering around San Francisco at lots of new restaurants with my orange food notebook and pen.  I am six years old and I like apples.  I also like Chinese, Indian, Mexican, and Japanese foods.  I have been known to love a good burger, too!  I am sharing my ideas about food because I think kids have a right to eat well, too!  It is important for kids to know the names of good restaurants so that parents don’t make all of the decisions for us!

I will grade restaurants using 1 bridge through 3 bridges (as well as half bridges) to let my readers know how much this kid liked the food.  I am using bridges as my symbol because I just moved to San Francisco, a city with lots of bridges, and it is my last name!

Restaurant Reviews:

1. Is the waiter, host, and/or chef nice to kids?  Do I feel welcome and is there an activity for kids, such as crayons and paper?

2. Is there a good kids’ menu?  And when I say a good kids’ menu, I mean are there choices that allow me to fully taste the chef’s food while not burning my mouth with spice?  Even though I like some regular kid food, my mom says it is important that I try lots of new food, too.  I am trying to build a good 6 year old foodie palette.  A good kids’ menu lets me get comfortable with a new food but shouldn’t make me cry.

3. Is the food good?  I think food is good if I enjoyed eating it and learned something new.  My mom asks questions about whether the food was grown by farmers nearby and whether the chefs care about sustainably-produced and organic foods.  Also, I adore chocolate and am very happy when I have a good dessert somewhere.

4. Is this a space where I can be a kid?  I like to move around sometimes, and although I am an experienced foodie, not all places allow me to get my wiggles out without a scene.

Restaurant Ratings:

I like the Michelin Restaurant Guide a lot but do not really understand the star system–too impersonal–and the Michelin man with his tongue out. Instead, I use a three Golden Gate Bridge scale. For example, the restaurants I review can receive a maximum of three bridges.

Three Bridges (perfect score)

  1. Simone I love this web site I think that this has encouraged me to go to these places and I think this will become a thing that people will use when they are thinking about going out for dinner. I have a idea of a place you should go try Bix.
