FAKERSEater National reports on a fake but oh-so-fancy restaurant where kids can enjoy ball pit seating and beautifully plated Fruit Loops until closing time, which is at curfew. The place is called Lil' Buco—a play on high-end dining establishment Il Buco—and is "located" in Austin. Of course, this spot is non-existent but would be pretty fun if it were real. "The menu — which comes complete with pictures of each dish — includes such items as mac and cheese cake with flavor packet coulis, grilled cheese coins, and the highly conceptual 'cookie unfinished,' all prepared by two chefs and brothers whose resumes includes stints at Chuck E. Cheese's and Dave & Busters." [-EN-]
