Standard kids fare goes gourmet.
My husband and I had a pretty incredible dinner at Fig & Olive in Scarsdale six months ago. I love the warm glow of Fig & Olive at night — and I’ve thought about the Moroccan tagine I ordered since.
But we haven’t gone back because we didn’t think we could bring our toddler. Apparently, we were wrong. [...]
Finally! A restaurant that parents -- and kids! -- will love.
My kids eat four things (don’t judge!), so going out to eat with them isn’t very fun. Thankfully, pizza falls into the “we like” category. Burrata, a fancy pizza joint, opened in the former Martinis & Chocolate space on Post Road in Eastchester this past winter, and it completely fits the bill for a family-friendy, yet trendy-ish vibe, all while serving absolutely delicious food. The New York Times loves it too!
Appetizers range from roasted beets to burrata crema served with crostini, and the wood-fired pizzas are wonderful, especially the “burrata” pizza with wild mushrooms and the “cockle” pizza with clams & fresh herbs. The staff is happy to seat your family near the really cool pizza oven so your little ones have the perfect view of the pies coming in and out, all while the friendly pizza chef entertains the tots.

At the Bedford Post Inn's Barn cafe, eggs are served with a side of charm.
Brunch used to be a staple in our house. Then we had Harper. Suddenly, going out to breakfast on a Sunday meant a trip to the local diner, lots of greasy bacon included.
If you miss the smell of warm sweet rolls on a Saturday (remember that basket of goodies at Sarabeth’s!) as much as I do, consider hiring a sitter for a “date day,” rather than a date night. Don’t feel guilty about leaving your little ones home on a Saturday or Sunday — it’s a few hours — and it’s totally legit to want to see your husband in the daylight hours sometimes too.
