We are a family of 5 arriving in New York in April and would like any suggestions for good restaurants to take our teenage girls to. Would like maybe a one with a nice view and then a couple of cheaper ones. We all eat any type of food.
Visiting New York City with your family in tow can be a challenge. Luckily there are enough food options at multiple price points to allow you to enjoy some cheap eats along with some fun splurges. Following are some of our favorite options for family-friendly eats.
Include teen-pleasing restaurants on a family trip to New York. Impressing your teenagers may not always be easy, but New York City makes a strong effort. The city has some of the best shopping, entertainment and people-watching in the world, and even the most jaded teens will appreciate some of the cool restaurants there.
There are a dozen varieties of mac 'n cheese to choose from, like the Cheeseburger, with ground beef and burger toppings. Any variety on the lengthy menu here, from the textbook all-American to the Spanish-accented La Mancha Manchego cheese, fennel and onioncan be made gluten-free or reduced-lactose. Share a pie with the family at this Bushwick pizzeria that offers the classic Margherita all the way to more adventurous selections like the Nightmare on Moore Street, which has taleggio, marinated radicchio, pickled shallots and habanada peppers.
Bareburger W. Crayons galore combined with a casual, festive ambiance make this the perfect kid-friendly spot for a post-Broadway dinner. The kids menu offers all the basics—burgers, dogs and milk to wash it down.
You thought your kid, of all kids, would love chickpeas and carob and seaweed and squash blossoms; that their first word would be pho or fondue or at least something that sounds like — could it be? Sometimes a waffle. Once, a canned chicken-noodle soup.
Our advice is that Its best to mix it up a bit as teens get bored very quickly — it is amazing how fast they start switching off to reality and onto their Video iPod — We suggest taking at least one activity from each section below, so one dining, one shopping and two other attractions should be enough to make the day a complete success for both you and your teenager. Depending on the age of your teen, you need to decide if its supervised or if you are ready to let then run amok by themselves. Teens need to be sure to bring their guardian along, and he or she must be 25 or over maximum of four minors per adult.
Believe it or not, such restaurants do exist in New York City. You only celebrate getting older once a year - better make it good. Think back to your childhood birthday parties, and you might remember things like colorful wallpaper, big tables full of people, ice cream, and a kid named Jesse leaving early after peeing his pants playing laser tag.
