I am taking my kids to the kids museum and am looking for a good local place in warehouse district. Not too expensive and we like local food. Any ideas?

      As much as I love Butcher, it's not an especially kid friendly setting. Limited seating, all tall stools at either tall tables or counters. The space is fairly cramped...not much room to spread out or to fidget around.

      American Sector isn't so expensive, and it's a fairly family-friendly setting, with lots of space between tables, big windows, and a few tables outside in a semi courtyard. The museum also has a more casual venue, the Soda Shop, but I can't vouch for it as I haven't done anything other than look inside.

      What about Ditcharo's? Carondelet at Girod. Or how about Leni's on Baronne between Julia and Girod? Gambit reviewed Leni's recently: http://www.bestofneworleans.com/gambi...

      American Sector at the WWII Museum, just two blocks from the Children's Museum. They have a kid's lunchbox on the menu for seven bucks.

          I agree, John Besh's American Sector is perfect for kids, and the adults will be equally happy.

          Thanks all. We walked by Cochon but it didn't look kid friendly enough for my crew. We decided to drive over to Domilise's and grabbed a shrimp po'boy. Woohoo!
