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 Book (and Whoopie Pie) Lover’s Delight

Should you be seeking a delicious lunch after a weekday morning spent at the New York Public Library’s main branch, Between the Bread is for you. In fact, in a blur of lunch spots in and around Bryant Park, this catering company-turned-eatery feels like everything is made with love. The sandwiches, for example, all of which are named for a New York City landmark building, such as Woolworth, Chrysler and Dakota, are a big hit for locals working in the neighborhood. Each month, the café spotlights a seasonal item, such the current featured vegetable, peas. The result?: peas take center stage in seasonal sides and grains such as sugar snap peas with sesame seeds. The menu sources items from local farms, such as Smith and Lewin Farms on Long Island, as well as the Union Square farmer’s market, and ‘free chickens’ (cage-free, antibiotic-free and hormone-free) are sourced from New Jersey. We dare you to visit without trying the homemade whoopee pies though the scuffins (scone-muffins) are pretty tough to say no to as well. Note: This location is only open during the work week. &nbsp; Between the Bread 20 East 40<sup>th</sup> St. Midtown 212-765-1796 Online: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.betweenthebread.com/">Between the Bread</a> <em>photo: Between the Bread</em>fuck
