Kids restaurants by borough
The bustling isle has just about anything families could want in a restaurant, from homey neighborhood cafés and niche eateries to theme spots and outdoor tables with a view.
The eclectic Borough of Kings may lack the quantity of Manhattan's family-friendly eateries but when it comes to quality, it is more than holding its own.
The most diverse NYC borough (its residents represent more than 100 nationalities) has a wealth of excellent offerings, from Mexican taqueria and Thai eateries to fusion upstarts.
The city's only mainland borough may not be on the mainstream culinary radar, but its original Little Italy is worth making the trek north to explore.
You're not likely to stumble on a great restaurant on the enormous island borough, but if you know where you're going, you won't be disappointed.
