Looking for a quick bite on the go? Head over to the long-standing Gray’s Papaya and grab a few frankfurters and one of their refreshing fruit smoothies. Eat ‘em standing up inside the establishment or take a stroll along the Upper West Side.

Do your kids love a California Roll or some long Asian noodles? Try Planet Sushi for an assortment of sushi dishes, noodles, soups, and entrees. The ambiance is nice and inviting for kids of all ages. When the weather warms up, take a seat on their outdoor patio to people watch while you eat.

Since 1933, Patsy’s has been a New York pizza landmark. Along with their brick-oven pizzas, enjoy calzones, pastas, heros, and more. The kids will love the food and you’ll love the history (and the food too!). You know a place is worth trying if it’s been around as long as Patsy’s.
70 W. 71st St.
For a super-casual atmosphere with food that’s kid-approved, Big Nick’s is a great option. Part of the establishment is a pizzeria and the other half is a diner with lots of burgers and gyros. They are open late if you’ve spent all day at the museum!
