NYC with baby?

Hi there, we're traveling back east with our infant daughter (9 months) and are hoping for recommendations for brunch/lunch/dinner of any new/great spots that won't give us grief with a's been a few years since we've been there, but we're open to cuisine types and neighborhoods. Some of our favorites used to be:
Fig & Olive
Spice Market
Mercer Kitchen
Cook Shop

Hope this helps, would love suggestions! We're headed there in a few weeks (mid-April). Thank you!

    I hope you have a sling and aren't relying on a stroller or carseat all the time since there probably won't be space.

    1. yes a sling or wrap is key. We travelled to NYC for a really long weekend of fine dining and checking out hole in the wall places. Over 11 years ago now, YIKES! We never had a single issue with being treat poorly but one constant was strollers were strictly frowned upon.

      Slings were becoming more mainstream back then but were still a novelty to some so we would get tons of comments, especially when my husband wore him. I always wore him when were dining as it was breeze for both the baby and I to eat at the same time.
