Nibble+squeak, a worldwide dining club for young parents looking to get out of the house with their kids, is opening a chapter in Austin. The first meeting will be at Emmer & Rye on November 12, which is fitting as Chef Kevin Fink welcomed a son to his family this month.

Nibble+squeak (short for “pipsqueak”) was launched in New York City in 2015 and has expanded to 10 cities including London, Chicago, and Miami. The company was founded to encourage new parents to do the things they loved pre-kids, and facilitates dining out by choosing restaurants that will ensure a kid-friendly experience with necessary equipment (high chairs, changing tables) and an enticing menu.

In a press release, Austin host Kelsey Hopping added, “With such an exciting dining scene and a great community of parents, Austin is the perfect place for Nibble+squeak. I can’t wait to bring people together to experience some of Austin’s best restaurants with our kids!”

Tickets for the dinner are for adults are $98, including wine, and $22 for children (toddlers eat for free). The four-course menu includes popular Emmer & Rye options like Johnny Cakes, cacio e pepe, and short rib carnitas served with roti. The dining club is dedicated to hosting events at a variety of restaurants and price points.
