dining with children in DFW

My daughter is almost nine and we live in north Dallas. Actually north, north Dallas, i.e. north of LBJ. I don't mind driving a bit as we just recently moved here and I'm looking forward to seeing and experiencing more of the metroplex. The suggestions of Blue Canyon and Patrizio's sound perfect. I should mention that we're not necessarily married to Italian food. When she's feeling adventurous, I'm able to coax her into Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, etc. We've driven over to Richardson, Arc en Ceil? I believe, for Sunday dim sum and had a fabulous time.

dining with children in DFW

Can anyone help a single dad who goes out for a father-daughter date every Friday night? We've been stuck in a Macaroni Grill rut as her default meal is Fettucinne Alfredo. I on the other hand would prefer to dine somewhere that doesn't have a "franchise" atmosphere. In other words.....a restaurant that welcomes but doesn't necessarily cater to (well-behaved) children, yet at the same time offers me a nice place to unwind and enjoy a decent meal as a reward to long week at work. I know there are other single parents facing similar predicaments, any suggestions?
