NYC Kid-Friendly Dining: Where to Bring your Budding Princess

By Carla Sullivan, Mommy Muncher


When venturing into the City with your Princes and Princesses – it is important to have a pretty good idea of where you want to go and when (you know how royalty HATES to wait!)

Here are a few spots that Mini Munchers (www.minimunchers.com) has discovered that my two little ones (17 months and 4 ½ years and I agree are worth the royal treatment!

1. Russian Tea Room (www.RussianTeaRoomNYC.com) One of the LAST remaining iconic restaurants in Manhattan, the Russian Tea Room is a treat for children and adults! Just step into this jewel-box restaurant, and your tot will know it is a royal day! Conveniently located on the same block as Carnegie Hall, it is a great place to come after a concert or a carriage ride in Central Park. The children’s tea is $25 a child (under 12) and the multiple courses will be sure to please any fickle Princess or Prince!

2. Sweetiepie (www.sweetiepierestaurant.com) A favorite of Gwyneth Paltrow, this West Village spot is a great family find. Not only is the menu varied (for both children and adults) but if you get there early – or reserve in advance – your Princess can sit in the coveted gilded bird cage located in the front of the restaurant. The hot pink banquettes are a great second choice for any royal bum.

3. Moomah (www.Moomah.com)- Moomah is a wonderful place to bring your royal tots in TriBeCa. Not only is the extensive menu local, seasonal AND organic (with dairy-free and gluten-free choices) but kids are encouraged to play while they eat with incredibly beautiful and engrossing art projects! What’s more, if you visit on a Saturday or Sunday, the back room, usually reserved for private classes, is transformed into a “funky forest” for children to explore and use their imaginations. Oh – they just got their liquor license so it can be a great way to unwind after a visit to Ground Zero or Nearby Century 21.

4. Fig & Olive (www.figandolive.com) Madison Avenue location only – After a day of royal shopping, Fig & Olive is a quiet and serene restaurant around the corner from Saks and Bendels to unwind. Ok, so they only have a kid’s menu at brunch on weekends – but the best part about the menu (for us moms with little ones) is that it includes Earth’s Best Organic Baby Food. So NICE to not have to schlep food for baby princesses!

4. Alice’s Tea Cup (www.alicesteacup.com) – With locations on the UES and UWS, Alices Tea Cup is a treat for little Princesses. Dont let the name fool you, as in addition to a great tea service, they also have a full menu and “after school” snacks – for a quick stop after the royal academy. Dont be surprised if you (or your little one) are tempted by the fun novelties for sale in the front boutique of both locations.
