Dining with Children in Brookline

As any parent knows, dining with kids can be tricky. Challenges range from choosing a restaurant with a decent children's menu to finding a place where you'll feel comfortable with lively little ones in tow. Although restaurants in some cities have actually deemed their properties "child-free zones," many family-friendly options exist here in 2015. Give our top two picks a try this August.

  • Golden Temple
  • Anna's Taqueria

Lo Mein Dish from Golden Temple in Brookline, MA

The first time you take your kids to Golden Temple, notice the way their eyes light up. To little ones accustomed more to tagging long for takeout, the old-school opulence is even more surprising than it is to adults unaware of the grandeur of its golden statues, large open spaces and crisply attired waitstaff. They'll also love having their pick of myriad dishes based on various meats, seafoods, veggies and noodles. The classic standby for picky eaters, egg foo yong, is available as well. Parents concerned about MSG (as many of us are in 2015) will be happy to know it's absent on the menu at Golden Temple.
