Brookline eats...Help!

Will be in town in mid December with my wife and 6 year old son. We are all adventurous eaters. Looking for cool places to eat. And possibly drink a small craft brewed beer. Interested in all cuisines and breakfast, lunch and dinner possibilities.
Appreciate you help.

    Pretty much everywhere is mentioned there. For beer, it's the Publick House.

    1. Your 6 year old might enjoy Roadhouse over the Publick House if you want to imbibe in some craft beer(s). Same owners.

      1. Zaftig's on Harvard Ave serves delicious Deli-style food. It's a great place to go for lunch and there's a playground right next door if it's warm enough for your son to want to run around outside.

        1. Publick House for a Belgian-inflected brew pub.
          Sichuan Garden for Sichuan style cookery
          Brookline Family Restaurant for Turkish comfort food (i.e. Middle Eastern with a twist)
          Shanghai Gate just over the border in Allston for good Shanghai cookery
          Clear Flour Bakery for fine baguettes, croissants and breads
          And many other honorable alternatives as noted in the thread .

          Shanghai Gate
          204 Harvard Ave, Allston, MA 02134

          Brookline Family Restaurant
          305 Washington St, Brookline, MA 02445

          Clear Flour Bread Bakery
          178 Thorndike St, Brookline, MA 02446

          Sichuan Garden
          295 Washington St, Brookline, MA 02445

          Publick House
          1648 Beacon St, Brookline, MA

          1. Japonaise Bakery is very good for Asian pastries & tea or coffee. Taberna de Haro is on the other side of the street and offers great tapas. Zaftigs is always a good bet for sandwiches, breakfast, etc.
