Fake Kids' Fine Dining Restaurant, Lil'Buco, Deftly Skewers Dining Trends
Wonderful Internet find of the day: This website for the "fine dining for kids" restaurant, Lil'Buco. The restaurant is fake, but the dining pretensions it skewers are all too real, from the menu items ("mac and cheese cake with flavor packet coulis," "Hot dog, ketchup reduction, mustard water," and "Lunchables charcuterie") to the drinks, which include "milk three ways" and "mixed sodas (pick three)."
Lil'Buco is open from 4 p.m. to curfew, and offers "curbside parent pick-up/drop-off" as well as " a full non-alcoholic bar, table service, and ball pit seating." Its chefs come from such illustrious backgrounds as Chuck E. Cheese and Dave & Buster's.
It's too bad that Lil'Buco is based in Austin -- we think it would fit right into the same strip that already houses Distilled Moustache and Reclaimed Wood & Subway Tiles.
