New York City Restaurant Week is back! From July 22—Aug 16, you and your foodie fam will be able to get great deals on your favorite dishes. The promotional program will highlight over 370 participating restaurants’ prix-fixe menus for lunch (two courses for $26) and/or dinner (three courses for $42). 

Can't find a babysitter? If you're taking advantage of the sweet Restaurant Week perks with the kids in tow, here are the great family restaurants and fun restaurants to hit with your crew. (Hint: New York pizza is involved.) 


For some zesty ‘za, head to Albert Di Meglio’s Barano in Williamsburg.

Your mini foodies will be oohing and ahhing over the handmade pasta dishes, like ricotta tortellini, or the classic (but never tired) margherita pizza.

Blue Smoke 

It’s no secret little ones love good, old-fashioned BBQ (honestly, who doesn’t?). Check out Blue Smoke in Battery Park City for some delish soul food like barbecue baby back ribs and skillet mac n’ cheese.

Dos Caminos

At four different locations, Dos Caminos has got you covered, wherever you are. Their tried-and-true enchiladas and tacos will be a good match for every kid and parents’ palate.

Naples 45 Ristorante e Pizzeria

Some kids literally live off pizza, and we get that. Naples 45 Ristorante e Pizzeria, located in the MetLife Building in Midtown, will give you that thin-crust, classic Italian pie that you crave.

Buttermilk Channel 

Buttermilk Channel, in Carroll Gardens is a classic American bistro that’s perfect for everyone in the fam. With options like the BLT sandwich and buttermilk fried chicken, this cute spot has got your back for fresh fare.
