Dare I say, healthy pub fare!?! Little Pub has tasty options for the entire family from a Thanksgiving Turkey Wrap to a gluten free Cobb Salad. The restaurant has become very popular very quickly so try to get there early to get a parking spot and avoid long wait times.

Louie’s is fantastic! We love it so much we celebrated my son’s baptism here with 24 people at one long table. The penne alla vodka and Chicken Louie’s are our personal favorites.

Casual and convenient. Great crepes, soups, smoothies, salads and sandwiches served within moments of ordering. My daughter usually has a soup or the Texan sandwich. The dessert crepes are a big hit as well. This may not be the best option for picky eaters.

The Ginger Man is a good spot to grab something while running errands or shopping with the kids. The burger and grilled cheese sandwich are just a couple of options on their extensive menu.

If you’re willing to venture out of Greenwich, but close enough that the kids don’t have a hissy fit, a family favorite is Fortina’s in Armonk (also open in Rye Brook!). With a great selection of beer and cocktails for the adults and an attentive and friendly waitstaff serving up delicious pizzas and pastas, we always look forward to dining here with our little ones.
