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.

As an Australian its hard for me to compliment New Zealanders (Kiwi's) on anything but these guys have done it really well! The Lamb burger and the Australian Coopers beer gets me over the line. They have live music playing pretty regularly and show the rugby when it's on.
