Kid-friendly Brooklyn restaurant for small party

I'm looking for a restaurant in Cobble Hill/Park Slope/Atlantic Ave area for a small birthday party that includes kids. It will be around 15 people and I'm thinking some place that has a courtyard would be good. Doesn't have to have kid-menu, just a place that would happily tolerate kids.

  1. I'm thinking that Two Boots in Park Slope would be perfect. The place is very kid friendly and they have an outdoor garden/seating area. Good luck.

    1. Agree with Two Boots although maybe best for a kids party - it is sometimes overrun with children. There's also La Villa; plenty of food that kids like, but it doesn't have a garden.

      1. It's actually an adult birthday party, but want to include kids. I thought of Two Boots, but we live in New Orleans and so are actually looking for non-louisiana/southern food.
        Any other suggestions? We've also had Franny's on flatbush and Joya recommended. Any more thoughts? Thanks very much.

          You might try the Union Smith Cafe, on the corner of Smith and Union in Carroll Gardens. They have a nice outdoor section in front and can also seat a large party inside. The food isn't spectacular, but is quite decent. There are pastas, burgers, seafood dishes, steaks - pretty much something for everyone. And they are kid-friendly.

        2. how young are kids? If you are willing to take a chance on the weather, try pit stop near the waterfront in cobble hill. Got big outdoor space, a kids menu, and lots of families. Food is french bistro/home cooking. Best if kids are 6-12 or so....
