Baby friendly in Boston?
- mhartley Jul 15, 2009 07:52 AM
My dad will be visiting from the California in August and we are heading to Boston for a daytrip. I'm looking for a cool/funky/interesting/delicious place for lunch that is also fairly baby friendly and not too pricey! Any recommendations?

If pizza is okay, Picco in the South End is a good option. Excellent pizza and salads, a few pasta and sandwich options, decent beer/wine menu, and homemade ice cream. It's a pleasant space and it's bustling so you won't have to worry about the baby getting fussy. Nice area to walk around in afterward.
Here's a current thread:
China Pearl (or one of the other dim sum houses) is very baby-friendly, funky for those who don't get it regularly, fun and affordable. Have been taking my kids there since they were old enough to sit in a highchair and they still love it.
We will be driving down from Portland and plan to hit the aquarium. We haven't decided quite yet what neighborhoods to hit but are open to any and all! My dad used to live in Jamaica Plain so I imagine we will stop in there. I suppose cool/funky/intersting to me means an exciting menu, something you wouldn't find everyday? I'm not really looking for soup, salad, sandwich...that kind of thing. Something ethnic and fabulous perhaps? Sorry to be a little vague and ambiguous, I haven't had the fortune to dine in Boston much and I am not sure what to expect! Thanks!
I love Sel de la Terre, it's right by the aquarium, and it's definitely baby friendly - but I'm not sure it fits the cool/funky/interesting qualification. Certainly delicious...
