Lunch Near the Children's Museum
We are heading to the Children's Museum with 3 kids under the age of 6 and are looking to have lunch somewhere close. We are looking for a place that is kid friendly that the parents will also enjoy. Quality food is a must. All ideas and types of food are welcome. Thank you!
Though not quite as close as Flour, Sel de la Terre is a place in that general neighborhood that comes to mind as being kid friendly.

We always go to Flour, too. One way to circumvent the crowd issue is to bring the lunch back to the Museum and eat in the lunchroom.
i don't usually recommend chains but the au bon pain the museum is perfectly acceptable and i find i can feed myself and my grandkids reasonable food without moving the herd around!
I love Flour and usually go there too. I will say if you can get to the museum early (if you are a member or sign up for a membership, you can get into the museum at 9-- member's hours are from 9-10) and then go to Flour early for lunch, you will have a better chance of getting a table. If you go at the classic lunch time, there is usually a line.
If Flour doesn't work, I also like Lucky's but I'm not sure how kid friendly it will be. Lucky's is more pub grub.
My other suggestion would be to walk over to the North End (it is a nice walk along the water and you can see the boats) and hit up Galleria Umberto.
