Planning on a family day to the Zoo, coming from Brooklyn. Any good diners nearby, places for lunch, late Breakfast beforehand or early dinner afterwards? Looking for something original ..........
Not a diner but why not check out Arthur Ave? You can either pick up supplies for a picnic lunch at the zoo or hit one of the restaurants for dinner afterward.
I believe that Roberto's 603 Crescent Ave in the Arthur Ave. neighborhood, opens at 4 PM on weekends. It is one of the best Italian Restaurants in NYC. It is pricey, but quite family friendly. They do not take reservations, but if you get there between 4 & 5 PM, you should not have any trouble getting in.
"Be aware that Roberto's is now closed on Sunday."
really? i thought that roberto's was at one time closed on sundays, but had changed that several years ago and was now open 7 days a week. perhaps the website's information is outdated? or maybe they reverted back to their former days of operation?
