UES lunch, 4 moms w/ 4 strollers - Suggestions, Please!

I don't know if this is even feasible, but if you have any recommendations for places for lunch on the UES (mid-week) that could possibly accommodate a group of 4, all with strollers, please suggest them. Thanks!

  1. The strollers can be left with the front, or do they each need to be next to the table?

      next to table, these are all infants.

        It's unlikely that you'll find any restaurant (other than a fast food type) that can accomodate 4 strollers. Maybe ShakeShack on 86th St. would work for you; they have a ramp for easy access.

          No room inside of the Shake Shack for four strollers at one time.

        2. re: astark

          I don't think you'll find a place that has enough room for you to bring 4 strollers next to the table. Can you take out the car seats from the strollers and leave the strollers up front and just bring the car seats with you? Each of you can put your baby in the car seat right on the floor next to your chair...

      2. Square Meal is usually quiet during lunch, and might be able to accommodate four strollers.

        1. Burger Heaven on Third, between 86th and 87th is Stroller Heaven.

          1. big daddys---geared to be kid friendly, cafe delsace--roomy and empty enough to accomodate and good grown up food. yummy soups and chopped salad...

              Big Daddy's is awful.

              Cafe D'Alsace has no table that has enough room around it for 4 strollers.

            2. I've seen plenty of strollers and parents at Yura's on Madison.

                But there's not a table for 4 at Yura.

              2. Peter's Gourmet Diner on 1st at 83 Street has a large stroller trade. The food's pretty good too. I'm sure they could accommodate you.

                  1. Places I've gone with big groups of strollers at the table: Fetch, the former Bellini space (3rd ave & 92nd - new restaurant name, but same owners and very accommodating to strollers), Big Daddys, Barking Dog, Uptown Lounge (not too crowded at lunch time).... many of the restaurants in the upper 80s/90s are accommodating to groups of strollers... however you often sacrifice the quality of food for the space. As for the poster who suggested Square Meal - they do not allow strollers at all in that restaurant. Not really a baby-friendly space.
