Zero Otto Nove/Arthur Ave with kids in Dec?

Hi -

We're headed to the NY Botanical Garden either Thurs, Dec 22nd or Fri, Dec 23rd with the kids and grandparents. We were thinking of possibly heading over to Arthur Ave afterwards for an early(ish) dinner - probably around 5:30/6. We live in Westchester and used to live in Manhattan, but none of us have been out to Arthur Ave in decades. I like what I've read about Zero Otto Nove, but will it be hard to get a table (for 7) there on a Thurs or Fri night? Are there other recommended places that will be hospitable to kids? Does anyplace take a reservation? Cost isn't a big consideration, and the kids are pretty good in restaurants and flexible eaters - we would just like someplace welcoming and tasty. Thanks!

  1. You may face a bit of a wait but my guess is it will be manageable (at least until 6 or so). Besides, if there's a wait the immediate area is conducive for walking and exploring. All in all, ZON is a good spot for kids in terms of menu and setting. You won't regret the decision.

        Zero Otto Nove is definitely good and good for kids. You are probably also aware of Dominick's, about 1/2 block further down Arthur Avenue. Dominick's is totally different - long shared tables, cramped in a good way, no menus but they will tell you everything they have and they can make anything you want, and it is also good for kids. Totally different experience, but I like them both.
