Bronx Zoo/Arthur Avenue with toddler

rachelblue Dec 26, 2013 09:26 AM

Any suggestions for good places to eat lunch on a weekend in the Arthur Avenue/Bronx Zoo vicinity with a toddler? (High chairs, quick service, noise-friendly, not a long wait, etc...)

We ate at Antonio's Trattoria last time and it was excellent, but a little pricey for repeated return visits (guess they don't have a lunch menu?).

    Try some spinach and cheese bureks at Giovanni's - directly across the street from the Arthur Avenue Market. They're sizable, filling and about $5 each - and as quick as it takes to heat 'em up in the brick oven.

        Unfortunately, Antonio's prices are pretty on par for the sit down restaurants in the area. I'd recommend Cafe al Mercado in the retail market. It doesn't look like much, but I've found their food better than a lot of the restaurants nearby. I'm 90% sure they have high chairs as well.
