NYC’s Best Kid-Friendly Farm to Table Restaurants

Read next

We may not be within a stone’s throw of anything even close to a silo, barn or haystack, but thanks to some very innovative chefs and restaurant owners, the farms are coming to us. Happily, New Yorkers have embraced the local food movement in a big way — and farm-to-table dining isn’t just for adults. Flip through for 9 of the city’s top farm-to-table restaurants that welcome diners of all ages.

A Special Night Out

Just because you’re a parent doesn’t mean you don’t want to be out and about in SoHo. To the rescue, Chalk Point Kitchen, featuring only the most local, organic, seasonable and sustainable fare. Unlike other restaurants in the neighborhood, this place is down home but sophisticated. As you place a red-and-white picnic-style napkin in your lap, a tasty bowl of pickles is brought to the table, but that’s where the down home ends. What ensues next is a super-sophisticated menu (there’s no kids’ menu here so make sure your kid has a bit of an expansive palate). Rest assured: An 11-year-old sampler deemed the Plainville Farms Roasted Organic Half chicken and Treasures Farms Fingerling Potatoes the best he’s ever eaten. Bonus: The entire menu credits each and every farm of origin (such as Roasted Paffenroth Farms Carrots), every item can be made gluten-free and most items can be made vegan upon request. Tip: Book an early reservation before the young hipsters arrive and the place gets packed.</span> Chalk Point Kitchen 527 Broome St. SoHo 212-390-0327 Online: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.chalkpointkitchen.com/"><span style="font-weight:400;">Chalk Point Kitchen</span></a> <em>photo: Chalk Point Kitchen</em>fuck
