Girly lunch near Boston Opera House

My mother, my daughter, and I are going to see the 12/23 matinee show of the Nutcracker. We're looking for a "girly" place to eat lunch beforehand. My daughter is 4, but is extremely well-behaved in restaurants and will eat anything, so her age is really not much of a factor in the restaurant we choose (in fact, I think Grandma is pickier than the 4-year-old). Anyone have a suggestion for lunch nearby?

We currently have a reservation at Kingston Station, which I'm sure will be fine, but if we could find something with a slightly different atmosphere that would be great (like Upstairs on the Square-ish, if something like that exists).

Thanks for any suggestions!

Kingston Station
25 Kingston St, Boston, MA 02111

    2. Petit Robert Bistro Central is nearby too and serves lunch. I haven't been but I think their other locations have received some good reviews in the past.
