New Years Eve with Kids near Copley/Pru Center

Hi - Yep...we are crazy enough to be doing First Night this year with our 3 kids. Will be staying at the Sheraton Boston and was wondering if there would be any decent places to go for dinner? Kids are 7, 10 and 12. Will be there for 2 nights, so we're open to any suggestions.

I know it will be a zoo that night everywhere, but just looking for some recommendations on places to try that won't totally kill our wallet with pretty decent food.

Thanks so much!

  1. The obvious choice would be the Summer Shack across from the hotel which has detractors and can get pricey, but it's roomy and has stuff for kids and you could choose wisely. A walk in the other direction brings you to Anchovie's on Columbus Ave. for basic Italian altho it's kind of a bar scene sometimes. Very reasonable. Also on Columbus is Petit Robert Bistro with entrees <$20 and further down toward Mass Ave. is Columbus Cafe with entrees in the $10-18 range. Summer Shack is the most kid oriented but you may want to walk away from the Boylston St. side of things to find a restaurant.

    1. My nieces and nephews (same age range) really like Game On over at Fenway Park. They have a great variety. I really like their burgers.
