Baby Friendly Mexican Breakfast Brunch - Tu Y Yo

So L does not look as impressed with our Mexican Fonda dining experience as me... but let me tell you momma loves the Chilaquiles Toluqueños at Tu Y Yo, so we tried to see if the peanut would sit in her car seat without screaming and disturbing the other brunch diners.

We happened to get to the restaurant at a time when she would have rather been napping -- oops! Parental timing mishap... but she dealt with us eating with minimal squawking and we have become more adept at eating with one hand, or taking turns eating.

Since the service is very quick here and very friendly, we didn't feel too bad about delaying L's nap time and she was mildly entertained by the music and the ceiling fans. This is the second table service restaurant we have taken her to -- the first being IHOP where it is so noisy that no one cares if a baby screams the whole way through breakfast (although she snoozed in her car seat for that meal!). She has successfully "eaten" at Chipotle as well, but I don't think that really counts as a restaurant, does it?

I'm thinking that before she becomes mobile it will be easier to go to restaurants... as long as we can find places that have enough room for all the ridiculous accessories babies come with these days, don't have a wait or slow service... any suggestions for us, from other Boston-area people who like to dine with infants?

She's such a cutie and getting big fast!

I don't know about "infant" friendly which I suspect is different than kid friendly but my friends all have toddlers so I'm familiar with kid friend places.

And the only two I really know of are Henrietta's Table and Picco. Also, I arranged for a private family function at Eastern Standard once and they were super kid friendly to us. They brought out crayons and easily subbed in stuff that the kids might like to eat which looked less chi-chi. But I think they'd be fairly kid friend in the main dining room during the day and early dinner hours :)

Thanks for the tips! I've only been to Eastern Standard once and it was NYE and we really liked it. Don't think I'll be out for NYE anytime soon what with the peanut and me wanting to go to bed at 9:30 every night, but perhaps we'll venture out for day/early dinner so that she gets used to the thought of eating offal!
