One of the biggest questions I get asked on the daily is where to eat with kiddies in NYC! Whether you are traveling from out of town or a New Yorker out of options, let this list of kid–friendly restaurants we love be your NYC guide to great food, great desserts, and always an experience!
Ellen’s Stardust Diner is located in Times Square and is home to the Broadway theaters and biggest New Year’s Eve party of the year! The waitstaff is a singing crew that makes your dining experience that much more fun!
Old-school soda shop dispensing sundaes, egg creams & comfort food. Located in a once popular pharmacy shop in the 1920’s, Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda now serves their delicious drinks out of this former apothecary!
Max Brenner is a chocolate bar that serves all things sweet in ways you have never witnessed before! From chocolate injectable treats to the coziest hot chocolate, Max Brenner is a great place to indulge!
The American Girl Cafe is an interactive experience in which you and your children can eat and they can play with their dolls! There are often different events going on that can be reserved online, each month! Our fav is their tea time! Here’s our post!
Bubby’s is known for its simple and fresh comfort food! Knowing where your food came from and the many cultures that had an impact on American cuisine is Bubby’s mission! Make sure you get the pancakes and their pies do not disappoint!
Sarabeth’s is a neighborhood staple with multiple locations. A great location is the one located directly across from Central Park, as you can go for a stroll in the park after, visit the Plaza Hotel, see Carnegie Hall, go to the MoMa, and more!
Fogo De Chao is a Brazilian steak house with a charming history and created by two brothers. Togo De Chao is an entire experience where the wait staff comes around with giant skewers of meat to which you get to pick what you’d like and they serve it to you right there. This is Ryder’s fav place to eat!
One Fine Day, Serendipity, and Trust the Man are three major films that Serendipity has hosted as the setting! Serendipity has a huge celebrity following beginning with Marilyn Monroe, Gracy Kelly, Andy Warhol, and Cary Grant. Serendipity has delicious and unheard of desserts but get take our word and get the frozen hot chocolate!
Whimsical Tea House without the “pinky up”! Alice’s Tea Cup is a place to enjoy afternoon tea with friends and family. Scones, tea sandwiches, and sweets, and don’t forget to ask them for the pixie dust!
Shake Shack began as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park, evolving into what it is today! With fresh, simple, and high-quality ingredients to bring delicious snacks and food! There’s multiple locations, but our fav is Madison Square Park!
One of New York City’s most famous residents is the ever elusive and capricious Eloise at The Plaza. Enjoy a rather fancy tea…and everything pink! It’s such a great experience to enjoy tea time with your littles ones! Be sure to make reservations ahead! Our post!
