You never run out of adventures living in Chicago, and I love taking advantage of all the city has to offer. My three kids, though, would often rather play video games and watch TV than go on family outings.
Luckily, I've found a sweet incentive to get them off the couch: food.
It can be tough to get my 12- and 14-year-old boys motivated to go on a tour of Chinatown or Devon Avenue's Indian neighborhood, but if the payoff is a good meal, everyone's suddenly hungry for the urban adventure I've planned.
Here's what's on my menu of fun family food trips in Chicago.

"What's klezmer?" asks my 12-year-old. Ahhh, music to my ears. Our outing on a recent Sunday was the klezmer brunch at City Winery.
Located along restaurant row in the former meat packing district, City Winery looks like a microbrewery inside, except they're making wine in the vats instead of beer. During the week it's an adult venue with a variety of musicians performing, but every Sunday City Winery pairs lively bands with breakfast in a klezmer brunch, perfect for kids.
