My favorite "fun" and "creative" restaurant is Yaffa Cafe in the East Village in NYC. We went there a lot in college and it still has the same funky decor. Gaudy lamps, beaded curtains, textured wallpaper and chintzy paintings. The back porch is really nice in the summer too.

The food is good and not expensive. We don't go as often as we did in college but I still like to take out of town guests there. Its a very East Village restaurant.

It's been closed for about a year now, but I really think Mars 2112 in Times Square was a great fun restaurant for kids. One of my nephews had a great birthday there a few years ago.

For a while, all the Avant-garde chefs were turning food into foam. I thought it was supposed to be because they were fun and creative.

Boy, did they enjoy setting me straight!

My vote is for the old Jack in the Box where you placed your order to the big plastic clown.

Dick's Last Resort in San Diego is fun.

You don't see them around much (not the talking fish on the wall at Bugaboo Creek does not count as a "fun" restaurant).

There was Sally's Stage with roller skating and a show. There was Dante's Down the Hatch in Atlanta with crocodiles in the moat. Medieval Times of course.

This place still has entertainment.

Back in the 80's, Scoozi in Chicago was a really fun scene - it was a new kind of sort of theater restaurant where you'd go to feel glamorous (for Chicago) and it was a huge hit.

Don't really eat out much anymore, and so I'm not one to make suggestions.

Restaurant in Denver called the Casa Bonita,they have a Acapulco setting with a cliff and pool down below. Cute guys in speedos dive off the cliff. Happened one time to have lunch with my mom there, she was sitting with her back to it, I happened to be on the right side of the table to take in the show. I don't think she knew what was going on behind her.

Lucky Chengs (NYC) is "fun" to take flyover tourists to just to watch their reactions.

The Slaughtered Lamb is a terrible tourist trap with disgusting food and rude staff. I went there once and I've never had such a horrible experience at a restaurant.

r14 Casa Bonita from South Park? That's a real place? If you haven't seen that South Park you should, it's hilarious.

Zaytinya in Washington DC.

Very creative Mediterranean dishes by Jose Andres. And across the street is the fabulous and free National Portrait Gallery.
