Chef Marc Murphy’s two seafood spots are ideal family hangouts. Nosh on deviled eggs ($8), mussels ($21) and now, just for tots, convenient, well-balanced meals that embrace the new dietary guidelines set forth by Michelle Obama and the USDA. The easy-to-navigate MyPlate menu ($12) features playful combos like Green Eggs and Ham—with spinach, basil pesto and cheesy whole-wheat toast—or sliced skirt steak with broccoli and cheesy brown rice. Plus, there are plenty of choices on the kid’s menu at this Montauk-inspired eatery—but good luck getting the little ones to opt for carrot sticks over French fries, although that’s an option.
