lunch with 11 year old between met and nat history
my friend is here from hawaii with her 11 year old daughter. We are trying to go see egypt at met, have lunch, and then they will go to natural history. they are broke so i will probably buy, so no 50 a plate for lunch. Any recommendations would help. I want to be able to sit down, breathe air conditioning, and go to the bathroom, fast food is OK, food type doesnt matter as long as it is good. thanks for the help, oh and i need to go tomorrow, July first, yes the met is open mondays starting july 1. sorry or the short notice
There is a Restaurant Uno right behind the Natural History museum that has lunch specials, clean bathrooms, and good air conditioning. Definitely kid friendly.
On the Met side of the park, you might consider Joy Burger Bar.
But honestly, I think Shake Shack (previously mentioned) is probably your best bet in/around the two museums.
81st and Columbus, right across from the Museum of Natural History
very easy to get to from the Met. Take the M79 crosstown bus. get on at 79th & Fifth, get off 2 stops later (across the Park) at 81st & Columbus. You will need exact change for the bus — $2.50 per person OR a MetroCard.
