Near Rye Playland?
For his birthday my 7 yo (soon to be 8) ds wants to go to Rye Playland with one friend and his cousin rather than have a party. We thought afterwards we would take the kids to a restaurant nearby. Looking for suggestions of somewhere decent that can accomodate kids, casual as we will be coming from playland, but is also special as it is his birthday. BTW, his friends eat like 8 year olds but our son does not like or eat from kids menus (and who can blame him).
Edo Japanese Steakhouse in Port Chester is just 5 minutes away (Google Maps has it at 3 minutes!). It's your basic hibachi place but the food there is better than other hibachi places in the area (in my opinion). It's more of an 'event' dinner and is always hosting birthday celebrations. The kids love it. For an extra $6 (at least last time I checked) they will take your photo and include dessert.
Kelly's Shipwreck on the corner of Grace Church and Midland in Rye. Its a small casual neighborhood bar that accommodates families very well. Huge well-executed menu includes lots of kid and adult friendly items. Also 4-5 daily specials. They are best known, however, for having one of the very best burgers in westchester and for their chili cheese fries.
