Anything good to recommend? Something that can handle a larger group with a bunch of little kids?

Thanks!

    Saraghina is great for brick oven pizza, homemade pasta and overall tasty, homey Italian food. I highly recommend it.

    Chavellas is also very good Mexican. It's a good spot for brunch/carb load-up before hitting the CM frenzy. It's cozy spot, although they are expanding in a new location on Franklin, so get there early.

    Tom's Restaurant on Washington is a landmark diner spot but, beware the lines. It's longer than the one at the CM on a free Saturday.

    None are next door to the Museum but in easy driving distance.

      The museum is pretty much in the middle of a residential area so there's not much within a few blocks. They do have a café. Notice is required for groups larger than six. Take a look at their suggestions for food: http://www.brooklynkids.org/index.php...
