Rainy Day Lunch with Toddler Uptown

I am looking for a good place for lunch in Uptown with a toddler on a Sunday. We are down to our last few days in town and I'm looking for some fresh recommendations. Thanks.

  1. It is hard to know what would be a "fresh" recommendation, since you haven't mentioned where you have already been....

      We have been to a lot of places pre-toddler up and down Magazine. With the toddler we have tried Sukho's Thai, Surrey's Uptown and Mahoneys. We have been eating a lot of take out, but are looking to go out. Anything with good food, but plenty casual and friendly for a not too great at sitting at the table toddler.

        I am having a little trouble coming up with a good Uptown rec, outside of obvious spots like Frankie & Johhny's and Camellia Grill.

        If you wouldn't mind a very short drive, I would suggest trying John Besh's American Sector at the WWII Museum (Warehouse District). They are used to kids (being at the museum) and have a relaxed, casual atmosphere, and there is a lot of toddler friendly food on the menu. But they also cook with some real flair and have dishes (and drinks) that will please the grown-ups.

        Menu here:

          We gave American Sector a try and it was just what we were looking for. Thanks.

            I'm delighted it worked out for you.

    2. There are some casual places along Maple near the riverbend. Take a look at Babylon. It's a cute neighborhood to walk around if the rain lets up.
