When it comes to choosing a restaurant in the city center, the possibilities are endless. With just a snap of the fingers, we can find ourselves in front of dishes that come to us from all over the world, surrounded by the exact vibe we’re looking for at the moment and all that, depending on the price we are willing to pay.

However, the task can get a little more complex when kids are part of the equation. Not all restaurants offer a menu that satisfies the palate of parents as much as that of children.

On this note, here are 4 places to discover that have a menu adapted for kids and where parents can enjoy their meal without compromise.


Boustan restaurants recently launched “Le P’tit Boustan”, their first menu developed specifically for children. It includes 3 authentic Lebanese meals served in 100% recyclable boxes, which are accompanied by fries, juice and an allergen-free cookie. All this for the price of $5.99! In addition, one dollar per purchase is donated to Misson Inclusion‘s Nourrir un enfant campaign with the goal of improving the quality of life of thousands of children and their families in Quebec until October 31.
