    Enjoying a Family Meal Outside of the House

    Last updated 1 year ago

    There are some nights when you just do not feel like cooking. If you want to leave the meal preparation to someone else, it might be time to enjoy a family dinner somewhere other than your home. Use the following tips to plan an out-of-the-house meal that the whole family will love:

    Spend Some Time Together in a New Setting
    Sometimes when you spend some time together outside of the home, it allows you to bond more as a family. Choose a restaurant where you all feel comfortable enough to be yourselves and experience some quality family time. The change of scenery helps to pull you out of your normal routine and enjoy something new together.

    Find a Family-Friendly Restaurant
    The trick to enjoying a meal as a family is to choose a restaurant that can cater to families. Look for eateries that have menus designed specifically for kids so everyone has plenty of options when it comes to what to eat. If your kids can order dinner that they actually like, they will be on their best behavior.

    Give Your Kids a Lesson on Proper Etiquette
    Use going out to eat as an excuse to work with your kids on proper dining etiquette. Work with them on their table manners and, if they are old enough, encourage them to order for themselves. Actually eating out together in a restaurant offers you an opportunity to put the lessons you them teach at home into action.

    Birk’s Restaurant loves when families come and enjoy our private dining options. With a junior executive menu the kids will love and plenty of great eating options for parents, we give everyone the choice they need to find the right meal.

    Starters to Try Before Your Meal

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Why should you have to wait until dinner to start enjoying the amazing flavors at Birk’s Restaurant? When you order some of our tantalizingly good appetizers, you and your dining party can enjoy delicious teasers before the main course arrives. Keep reading to learn about some of the starter options that we offer:

    Fried Calamari
    We put our own twist on this favored delicacy by cooking it with Romano and Parmesan cheeses. With some garlic and herbs, we enhance the flavors even more. These extras bring more out of the squid’s nutty flavor. Calamari is also full of protein, vitamins, and minerals, which help you stay on par with your nutritional intake for the day. In fact, one serving of calamari has 31 percent of your daily riboflavin and 14 percent of your RDA of niacin. It also helps you stock up on minerals like phosphorus, zinc, and magnesium.

    Grilled Artichoke
    Cater to the vegetarians in your group by ordering the Grilled Artichoke as your starter. Topped with Romesco, roasted tomato sauce, and lemon-garlic mayonnaise, this appetizer will please the palates of even the most dedicated meat eaters.

    Lump Crab Cakes
    Served with an avocado salad, organic greens, and herb-garlic mayonnaise, these crab cakes are just delicious enough to whet your appetite for the next course at the steakhouse.

    Buttermilk Onion Rings
    Go the traditional route with your appetizer selection by opting for the buttermilk onion rings. With a side of steak sauce and ranch dressing, there is always a great way to dip the onion ring and optimize the flavor.

    Whenever you are hungry for a great meal, Birk’s Restaurant is here to help. Our hardwood-grilled steaks are famous throughout the San Jose area. Just twelve minutes from downtown, we have the menu and the location to make you salivate. To learn more about our appetizers, check out our website or call (408) 980-6400.
