After glimpsing artworks at the institution dedicated to Latin American culture, introduce your brood to its myriad flavors. Kids can savor the menu's simpler offerings—soft- and hard-shell tacos, tamales, cheese and guava empanadas, flan de coco—or share a lunch entrée (the selection changes daily). The spot boasts a variety of Pan-Latino beverages as well: Tots might sip sodas from Colombia or Ecuador, tropical fruit juice or (nonalcoholic) Jamaican ginger beer. The café, which in good weather spills out into the courtyard opposite Central Park, coordinates its menu with the museum's programming.
