Westchester Kid Friendly

Looking for a souther westchester Children Friendly place for a birthday dinner. Any suggestions?

  1. It depends on the size of the party, age of kids. We are always well treated at Spring in Fleetwood (Asian) and they make will make my son's (5-1/2) favorite singapore mai fun even though it is not on the menu. He also loves miso soup. We also once took him to Galitos a portugese restaurant accross from Mount Vernon train station, but my son loves clams, lobster, sausage, etc. which many children won't touch.

    1. Fuji Mountain in Larchmont is fun, theatrical, full of families and pretty good food. I wouldn't go there w/out kids though....that type of place.

      1. there is an Italian place right called Bellizzi's next to the Trader Joes in Larchmont that is always advertised as being "kid friendly". An acquaintaince told me the food was actually really good.

        1. Where in Southern Westchester are you looking and how old are the kids? I don't know if this is "Southern" enough (or if it's too far west) but we've had good luck recently with the River City Grille in Irvington - it has a very nice kid's menu, and a good selection for the adults as well. They have a back room that works well for kids - a bit removed from the front dining room so you don't feel like you are imposing on a couple's "night out", and loud enough that kids making normal kid noise won't be out of place. It's the kind of place we go when I don't want to go to a "kid's restaurant" (which to me, Bellizzi is) but I still want to go out with my 2 preschoolers.

          1. One of the local magaines -- In Town ?? -- ran an article on kid friendly dining about 6 months ago. Based on that, we tried a restaraunt called Ciao in Eastchester. It is southern Italian fare: mid-level price and good quality. The draw is that they have a glass wall on the pizza kitchen. The chefs love an audience and will toss the dough when they have one. The staff also will share dough at the tables for the kids to play with. Our boys, 5, 10 and 12, keep asking to go back.
