Hi! Looking for suggestions for a kid friendly restaurant either near Fenway Park or easy to get to off of The T on the way. I have tried looking online but my situation is a little unique so no luck that way. My son is autistic and any "kids" restaurants will not work. Too much noise or commotion is too distracting for him. Also he is a little of a food snob. He likes pizza (well who doesn't) seafood and is crazy about sashimi. I would like a place that is kid friendly but not a kid's restaurant, if that makes sense.
We will be coming in from North Station and traveling the green line to Fenway for a tour. He has been to Fenway plenty of times but I usually get him crappy pizza because it's easy. This time I figure I will try for better for him. Thanks!

Jerry Remy's has a kid's menu, so obviously they're kid friendly. Doubt they have sashimi though.

With that said, I think you'll find most restaurants in the area kid friendly during the day.

Thanks. The problem with Remys is I am a little afraid of the noise level and the kids menu is abysmal. I would love to find a place with quality food for him. I suppose I could always have him order off of the regular menu. But not much there for him either.

That's a tough one. The problem is that most of the restaurants right around the park are quite noisy. I was going to suggest the Yardhouse until I read that part of your post. You might have to venture a little further away from Fenway. Maybe Eastern Standard? It's been a while since I've eaten there so I can't remember the noise level but the food is fantastic and they have a raw bar.

Thank you. Eastern Standard might work well. The menu would work for him. It's a curse/blessing to have a food snob seven year old. As we would be there off hours hopefully having a child there will not make anyone uncomfortable. He is actually very quiet and well behaved in public, he just gets overwhelmed in loud situations. Thanks again. I have lived and drank in and out of the city my whole life but never with a child. It changes everything.

It's kind of a French bistro looking restaurant sort of like Gaslight in the South End or the various Aquitaine locations around Boston. There's white subway tile and dark wood galore. It's definitely a more upscale restaurant than the nearby Uno's, but I wouldn't say it's particularly fancy either. I've never brought my son there, but my personal opinion is that it wouldn't be unreasonable to bring a child into the restaurant.

How about Pizzeria Uno? It's right in Kenmore on the way to the ballpark. It's also big enough that you might be able to ask for a quiet(er) corner.

My kids are also food snobs. They're only 4 and 7, but they've already eaten more sushi and steak than I had in my whole life before they came along. I've been taking my kids to Ruth's Chris since they were infants. The one on School St near the Park Street T would be on the way for you. It has a quiet/spacious atmosphere which is good for well-behaved kids. You may want to order the rare ahi tuna from their appetizer menu for him.

Maybe La Verdad for Mexican food?

I think time of day is the big factor here. Eastern Standard is pretty mellow in the late afternoon, but very noisy at night (as many places are).

What about India Quality?
