Carlos Suarez owns a trifecta of superb restaurants nearby, but his trattoria, Rosemary’s, is the most accommodating for tykes. When the weather is nice, ask for a table outside; there’s ample room to park your stroller. But even when it’s chilly, the large, sun-drenched space is easy to navigate with little ones. A separate children’s menu might even be tempting for the adults: there’s house-made focaccia with mozzarella and delightful Italian cookies.
Pipsqueak tip If the kids are good, it’s only about a five minute walk east to Washington Square Park where they can run and play.
