It’s the same show you know and love, but with kids sharing their opinions of each other’s favorite restaurants with host Leslie Sbrocco! Check, Please! Bay Area Season 13 episode 21 airs Thursday, November 29 at 7:30pm on KQED 9. See other television airtimes. And never miss an episode by subscribing to the video podcast.

In the Check, Please! Bay Area Kids premiere, we visit Art's Cafe, a San Francisco breakfast institution celebrating 30 years. Our first guest loves sitting at the counter at this tiny diner known for their signature hash brown sandwiches and Korean bibimbap bowls. Then, featuring dishes like Russian caviar and beef tartare, Perle Wine Bar in Oakland's Montclair Village is a surprisingly sophisticated pick for a ten-year-old. Finally, long before "mid-century modern" became hip, Marin Joe's has been popular with locals craving Italian American comfort food in Corte Madera and with our jiu-jitsu loving guest who's been going there since he was a baby.
