The Resy Guide to Kid-Friendly Restaurants in New York


There are restaurants that are good, and restaurants that are good for kids, but sometimes, it can seem tricky to find one that is both. However, as a food writer who is also a mother, I’ve found that many of New York’s most lauded spots are actually quite welcoming to children. Plus, there is the added bonus of introducing your kids to dishes that are a little more exciting than plain pasta with butter.

Below, we’ve curated a list of our favorite kid-friendly restaurants in New York. Some are classics, some are new openings, and some may surprise you. But all will delight every member of your family, regardless of their age.

Newly added on June 27: Casa Carmen Tribeca, Gertrude’s, One White Street, and Ribalta.
