Posh Tot Dining: Peninsula Edition

Mr. Posh and I have always considered dining out one of our favorite pastimes! With the addition of Posh Tot in our lives we haven't stopped our dining out adventures one bit!

Over the past 16 months we have steadily learned which restaurants are doable with a toddler but without sacrificing a great dining experience or quality of food. As a family we enjoy places that have healthy food options to share with Posh Tot, fun and vibrant atmospheres, Happy Hour Specials, and are high- chair or booster seat friendly!
