Where to take young kids in Hollywood?

My Cousin is in town with his wife and two kids, aged 5 and 7. I'm looking for somewhere in Hollywood with good food, but somewhere that kids that age will not be a problem. By that I mean A - no where so quiet that two younger kids will disrupt everybody else's meal, and B - somewhere with food that a kid that age will eat. I don't know the kids well enough to know how adventurous they are, so I'd like a place that will have things they'd recognize. I like Cambodian food. Most 5 year-olds don't. Any suggestions? My Cousin and his wife love all types of food, but I don't want the kids to be left out.

  1. Maybe something like Lucky Devils or 25 Degrees?

    25 Degrees Restaurant
    7000 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

    Lucky Devils
    6613 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

    1. There's an Italian place near 2nd. I can't remember its name. It's a red sauce joint but a pretty good red sauce joint.

      Maybe somebody else knows what I'm talking about?

        Not sure what Italian you're thinking of near 2nd, but Miceli's on Las Palmas might be a good option.

        Miceli Restaurant Hollywood
        1646 N Las Palmas Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028

          Miceli's that's it! That's where I would take little kids.

      2. Got to Loteria on Hollywood Boulevard. Fantastic Mexican food, very informal and noisy. They have an extensive menu of gourmet stuff that you will love and tamer stuff for the kids. You will thank me for this suggestion.

        1. The Bowery? Or The Hungry Cat?

          1. UWink in the Hollywood and Highland complex has video game screens at the table. Food is not great, but it's not funky either. Kids would fit in fine there.

              I think that space used to be a Wolfgang Puck restaurant.

                Just thinking about that give me Vert(igo)... ;-D>

                  No, Vert was on the other side... I think they mainly use it now for a catering kitchen...

                    I'm sure this is the spot. Right around the corner from The Grill
