Elk has a large backyard space with a heated and air-conditioned tent and shed that serves as a full-time playroom. That means sing-alongs, classes and events can take place every day of the year—and they do! When an engaging activity isn’t on the menu, little ones can grab from a selection of toys, blocks, rocking horses and games for all ages.
If your stomach is gurgling but the kiddos have ants in their pants, head to NYC's best restaurants with play areas—a happy medium for everyone involved.
While you're taking a much-needed sip of Stumptown coffee, you'll be able to let the tots enjoy mini indoor playgrounds for kids, outdoor activities and fun games while you refuel. Spots like Lark Café and PLG are casual eateries where you can unwind, and even the bustling Brooklyn Crab offers cool amenities: Where else can you play a round of mini golf and enjoy a fish lunch?
