If the idea of dining in the tourist-laden South Street Seaport with a kid in tow makes you weak in the knees (and not in a good way), check out this gem of a restaurant. Just slightly off the beaten cobblestoned path, Nelson Blue serves fantastic New Zealand–style grub in a beautiful space: You'll feel like a Kiwi yourself, surrounded by all the native tribal decor. Kids gravitate toward the traditional lamb and pork skewers and finger-friendly sides like zucchini-and-corn fritters and french fries with herb salt.
