The Cowfish

Dragon Bitez. Ninja Nuggets. What kiddo wouldn’t be excited to eat those? But what truly makes little eyes wide is the bento box and the kid-friendly “sushi” for dessert—a bed of Rice Krispies topped with a Swedish Fish candy, wrapped in a strip of dried fruit “nori.” Parents also appreciate the healthy side options of carrots, fruit, and edamame. Plan ahead; the restaurant doesn’t take reservations.
