Looking for a kid-friendly, yet upscale brunch experience? Check out Roxy Restaurant and Bar on Fair Oaks Boulevard, whose sparkly chandelier, cowboy-inspired artwork and spotted cowhide-upholstered booths will appeal to all your family members. Noteworthy menu items include the kitchen’s richly flavorful smoked salmon omelet, punctuated with capers, red onions and spinach and drizzled in a dill crème fraîche; and the crusty buttermilk cheddar biscuits, served up with soft-scrambled eggs and swathed in ancho sausage gravy. If you’re feeling extra hungry, try Roxy’s buttermilk fried chicken sandwich, piled on warm, chewy bread smeared with a feisty Tabasco mayonnaise. And the kids will love the restaurant’s smiley sourdough pancakes. (Parents: crayons and coloring sheets are available upon request).
