Natural History Museum

I'm spending Saturday at the Natural History Museum, and am looking for places within walking distance. Does anyone have any recommendations for:

1. A good Israeli restaurant


2. A casual, kid-friendly place for lunch.

  1. The Shake Shack is very nearby, on Columbus at 77th.

    We always go to the flagship in Madison Square Park:

    Shake Shack
    366 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10024

    1. It's been a while, but a walk thru the park to go to the NHM was always followed by a visit to Fine and Shapiro's.

      Fine and Schapiro
      138 W 72nd St, New York, NY 10023

      1. The good "Israeli" restaurant on the UWS is closed on Saturdays.

        1. Gazala Palace on Columbus @78th?
