Dinner near MIT/Kendall this Friday?

foodieX2 | Jun 19, 2013 09:55 AM

Our son and a friend are attending camp on the MIT campus so we would like to able to walk to dinner if possible. How crazy will it be to try to get a table around 6:00 pm this Friday night? Long waits? Most places seem to not accept reservations and I know these kids are going to be starving.

I don’t know the Kendall Square restaurant scene at all anymore. Doing some searching on here a couples places I remember still seem to be mentioned-Thailand Café, Hungry Mother, Miracle of Science and Blue Room. Though there one recent “down hill” review about the Blue room. Any thoughts for trying to get a table 6:00 an at any of these? And how long walk wouldbe?

Atasca takes reservations but our son’s friend is clearly in the chicken finger/plain pasta camp and not a thing on the menu would appeal to him. Anyone been there with a picky eater? Do they have a kids menu?

Was thinking as a last resort we could get takeout pizza from Emmas. That space is so tight I don’t think we would have a chance at snagging table but I am sure the kids would be fine eating the car on the way home. However the ‘rents were hoping to sit and relax-anyone been there at 6 on Friday night?
