Grub Street: Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants!

We’re so excited that New York Magazine’s Grub Street named Emma’s Torch one of the best kid-friendly restaurants in New York. We love having kids in our dining room, so come visit often!


Emma’s Torch

Named for the poet Emma Lazarus, who wrote, “Give me your tired, your poor / Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” this bright, simple, fully functioning restaurant is also a nonprofit cooking school for refugees and survivors of human trafficking, making the mostly Mediterranean and mostly delicious dishes food that both nourishes the body and feeds the soul. They’ll whip up a glorious cavatelli with butter and pecorino for the kids, and the crispy lamb meatballs, North African in spirit, are the perfect light dinner to enjoy while talking to your children about what’s really going on in the kitchen: love and kindness.
