Lunch after Big Apple Circus?

munghq Apr 6, 2010 10:15 AM

Any suggestions for a casual lunch after the circus this Friday? Mom, Dad, Mother in law, sister in law along with 3 and 7 year old girls. We'll eat anything!

Thanks in advance.

    Barmy and I usually go to Regina's Pizza. Post-circus on Friday afternoon *should* get you there at a mid-afternoon time that avoids the worst of the long prime-time wait, but be warned - have a back-up plan in case the wait is untenable with small kids.

      Sultan's kitchen (Turkish) is on State street is yummy, and if they're busy, you can take it to go and eat down on the greenway. It's packed at lunch, but after the rush is kid-friendly with self service tables

        I wonder if Kinsale would be a family friendly atmosphere on a Friday afternoon. Maybe others can chime in here. The kids might find the irish pub layout fun, and they offer some nice sandwiches etc. Reginas as Allstonian recommend, is always good and you have Artu or Antico Forno in the North End, both of which are family oriented.

          Yes, Kinsale would work well, been there on afternoons and it is laid back.

          3rd for Kinsale. Very convenient and should be quiet until 5:00 or so. My sister-in-law's nephew remembered Kinsale from when we went after a Celtics game 2 years ago. Granted, he's older than your kids but they do have a varied menu and comfortable seating.
          (And granted he remembered his first steak tip dinner and the waiter spilling his drink on us!)

            circus was great and pizza at reginas was too. no wait, quick service and surprisingly good pizza.

            thanks for the tips.
