Day5
阅读下面的材料,并根据内容选择最佳选项。
As anybody with children knows, dining out with kids is an entirely different experience than dining out with friends. Going to a restaurant with kids needs to be a well-thought-out happening, with a minute-by-minute game plan. If the restaurant offers crayons (蜡笔), puzzles or toys of some sort, it takes a lot of the stress out of dining out with kids. Here, in no particular order, are our pick of top restaurant for kids.
The Olive Garden
The Olive Garden is a family favorite, especially because of the kids menu, crayons, and activity books. My daughter believes this famous Italian food chain has the “best pizza ever” on its kids menu, and my son really enjoys the variety of the create-your-own pasta, which gives choices of sauces and pasta type. The kids also get to indulge in (尽情享受) the famous Olive Garden breadsticks – a favorite for kids of all ages.

The Silver Diner
The Silver Diner, which has locations in New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia, gets a nod for featuring one of the most fun kids meal containers – a heavy-duty paper car – as well as old-fashioned, table-side jukebox selectors (点唱机选择器).
The menu wins too, both for its breadth (范围) of choices, and for the number of them that are healthy. Kids can even choose nitrate-free hot dogs or gluten-free spaghetti with turkey meatballs.

Legal Sea Foods
The kids menu for popular seafood chain Legal Sea Foods is extensive (详尽的) and features the most choices from the sea of any kids menu we’ve seen. The original Boston Harborside restaurant has a small children’s menu, but its other locations all have 12 kid’s choices, including a pricy (昂贵的) One Pound Lobster (or 1/2 pound), Wood-Grilled Fish of the Day, and Popcorn Shrimp selections.

Ground Round
This restaurant chain was a favorite of children growing up in the 1970s and early 1980s, as it served popcorn and peanuts before the meal instead of bread, and let kids throw the peanut shells on the floor. There were also cartoons and silent movies shown during dinner. Ground Round has changed with the times, but they still have delectable (美味的) offerings for kids, including Steak Bites and an Extreme Combo plate of both chicken strips and cheese sticks.

1. What makes the Silver Diner different from the other restaurants for kids in the text?
A. Its great pizza and variety of activity books.
B. Its fun kids meal containers and jukebox selectors.
C. The popcorn and peanuts served before the meal.
D. The way its menus change with the times.
2. Which of the following restaurants might interest those who like eating lobster?
A. The Olive Garden.
B. The Silver Diner.
C. Legal Sea Foods.
D. Ground Round.
3. Who is the article intended for?
A. School teachers.
B. Parents with kids.
C. Travelers to the US.
D. Restaurant managers.
