A quaint historical landmark with great burgers and even better chicken francese. A family friendly vibe but what’s missing? Well….a changing table for one!

Appropriate for toddlers and little kids (if they don’t need a booster seat). Tougher for babies if you want to keep them in the stroller due to limited space.
Sippy Cup Rating:(2.0 / 5)
Nestled in the heart of Gramercy, Pete’s Tavern is the oldest operating restaurant and bar in New York City. The dark and quaint tavern/restaurant has oodles of history and has been frequented by everyone from O. Henry to Angelina Jolie. You might even recognize it from TV shows like Sex In The City and Seinfeld. Another fun fact? During prohibition it fronted as a flower shop!
The neighborhood restaurant is super friendly – Sunny’s practically a regular, having dined there before she was even out of my tummy! Although they are missing certain amenities (for example, no booster seats or changing tables), every time we go the staff is extremely accommodating. They are always willing to bring Sunny a half order or mix and match the sides as entrees for her.
Overall Pete’s has a family friendly vibe while still satisfying an adult palate. That said, be warned – if you have a stroller it is going to be challenging. Leave it at home if you dare, or make sure you get one of the stroller friendly seats outside.
- Outdoor seating in the nice weather – two front tables have good stroller room
- Very large portions and great value. Every entree comes with salad and potatoes or pasta. The pasta “side” portion is enough for a full meal so Sunny and I go splitzees.
- As for a free-standing table (opposed to a booth) in the backroom if you have a stroller
