Today my Little Ones and I headed to the newly opened Zoë’s Kitchen in Plymouth Meeting. Zoë’s Kitchen is a self-described fast casual restaurant serving Greek-inspired fare for the lunch and early dinner crowd. The atmosphere is bright and cheerful, and most importantly, kid-friendly. High backed booths offer privacy (and soundproofing), the food is fresh and inviting, outdoor seating offers a warm-weather alternative, and the friendly staff was attentive and kid-conscious. In short, it was a winner.
As we settled into our booth, my two year-old, Miller, was clearly fascinated with the restaurant’s bright, friendly colors and cool light fixtures. As a Mom, I was taken by the gloriously wipe-able surfaces that surrounded me. From the plastic Rubbermaid highchair (wheels!) to the modern plastic chairs at nearby tables, every surface could be easily wiped both pre- and post-meal. While eating out is a well-deserved vacation from sweeping up cheerios and steamed sweet potatoes off my own floor, I do try to tidy up as much as I can before we leave a restaurant. Being able to quickly and easily wipe up evidence of my toddler’s newfound obsession with creating ‘food art’ was greatly appreciated!
Zoë’s offers very large portions of delicious food at very reasonable prices. Miller devoured her Grilled Turkey & Cheese (served with a side of fruit) and happily began picking olives and cucumbers off of my plate. I ordered the Chicken Kabobs and Zoë’s newest offering, a (huge) Quinoa Salad. YUM. While I was surprised by the large size of the portions, I had little trouble inhaling the kabobs and most of the salad. Everything from the chicken to the grilled cheese was fresh and flavorful. I’d also like to mention that Zoë’s offers a phenomenal homemade Greek dressing and house spice blend. While they weren’t needed, they were a great addition to my meal. We finished up with a chocolate chip cookie so deliciously large and fresh-out-of-the-oven that I actually challenged my daughter to a thumb war to determine the lucky recipient of the last, chewy chunk. Sadly, she won.
And for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking and the thought of taking the kids to a restaurant makes your head hurt? Zoë’s offers ‘Mediterranean Family Meals’ that include family sized portions of your choice of entrée plus two sides, hummus, and Greek salad. I’m sold!
With several new locations now open in Montgomery County, Zoë’s Kitchen is a welcome addition to the family-friendly restaurant scene! I, for one, cannot wait to go back to try Yaya’s Hand-Made Chocolate Cake! And this time, I’m not sharing!
