Looking for infant friendly dining

I am staying in the financial district and am looking for recommendations for dinner. I will have my 4 month old along. I am just looking for good food, nothing fancy, perhaps a great family oriented pub or low key restaurant with a decent beer and wine selection. Thanks!

  1. Are you willing to travel? I can help with West Village/Chelsea area but don't know much about kid-friendly elsewhere.

      I'd be interested in kid-friendly spots for breakfast/brunch/lunch in W. Village and Chelsea.
      We'll be meeting friends with a 3-year-old.
      Thank you!

        Our favorite kid-friendly spots in the West Village/Chelsea area, I'm sure I can come up with more if needed.

        Grand Sichuan
        Gradisca (They LOVE kids here and will go out of their way to make you feel welcome but I don't know if they are open for lunch.)
        You can't beat Chelsea Market for kid-friendly dining. The place is jam-packed with strollers during the day.
        Cookshop (Have not been for brunch but have heard good things. Also, there is a good playground a block north for the 3-year-old.)

          I don't think Barbuto should be on this list. They are not even adult friendly in my experience. Rude and uneducated service people....

    2. I think Adrienne's Pizza Bar is just what you're looking for. It's fairly low key and has good food and a decent wine selection. Don't remember what their beer selection looked like, but I know they definitely serve beer. Note: the food is very good as a neighborhood restaurant, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there if I didn't live in the neighborhood. Unfortunately your choices are limited in the Financial District.

      1. Just walk a couple blocks north to Tribeca where parents tote children everywhere.

        If you go before 8, Roc, The Odeon, Petite Abeille, and Landmarc all have strollers parked outside. While none if fabulous, all are solid.
