Mangia authentic Italian cuisine at Eataly

Treat the kids to an Italian tour without ever leaving NYC! While parents sip complimentary espresso at the Lavazza café, young foodies will wind through the Eataly marketplace on a quest to get their passport stamped at various culinary stations. Led by an Eataly Ambassador, the tykes will sample offerings from cheese, vegetable, pasta, pizza and gelato areas while learning how each is prepared. Along the way, the kiddos can learn about ingredients, culture and the history of the food, plus pick up on some Italian words and phrases. Prior registration required. Ages 8 to 12.

  1. Eataly 200 Fifth Ave, between 23rd and 24th Sts
  2. Sat Aug 8 - Sat Sep 5

Break it down at a tot-friendly rave

  • Price band: 1/4

Kids will have a blast at this ultra-safe dance club party created specifically with them in mind. Future DJs of the pint size persuasion can get lessons from DJ Natalie. If being a DJ is not your kid's thing, they can try out dance lessons from CirKiz dancers. In the meantime, kids are always welcome to take to the dance floor and show off their moves to the sounds of 8-year-old DJ Alden and his dad, DJ Jesse. A performance by The Dream Lab's LED Robot will have them in awe. Ages 6 to 12.

  1. Cielo 18 Little W 12th St, between Washington St and Ninth Ave
