New Haven is foodie heaven – even for kids! From delicious ice cream to world class pizza, there is something for even the pickiest eaters. Don’t fret over dinner plans this weekend. Instead, check out some of the top rated family restaurants in New Haven and make dinner reservations.

Kids love pizza right? Well lucky for New Haven natives – Frank Pepe Pizzeria is one of the most popular pizzerias in America. Lines can get long for a taste of their cheesy pies, so when grabbing a meal with the kids, make sure you get there early. Even if you’re just traveling through New Haven for the day, give Frank Pepe’s a try!

When I was a kid, I loved fish sticks and seafood. On the weekends my family frequented a local seafood restaurant overlooking the water, especially when the weather was nice. Lenny and Joe’s Fish Tale  is a great seafood restaurant right in New Haven! Their prices are reasonable, portions are generous, and their menu has plenty of options. Children under the age of 12 can order off the kid’s menu which features favorites like fish and chips and of course mac n ’cheese. What’s a kid’s menu without man n’ cheese?

Summer might be winding down, but I love ice cream year round. Libby’s Italian Ice and Pastry Shop has an amazing selection of Italian desserts, pastries, Italian ice, and ice cream. Here, children can experience real New Haven-Italian culture. Families can grab a snack and take a walk on historic Wooster Street or sit in – and kids love to have a seat in their old-fashioned chairs.

And while we’re talking about yummy pastries – have you tried Donut Crazy? Their New Haven location has a wide selection of amazing donuts, tasty drinks, and fun décor which makes Donut Crazy a great place for parents and children alike. Grab a seat on the couch or donut bar and enjoy a variety box of donuts – from classic glaze to fruity pebbles. These large donuts are hard for children to finish in one sitting, but leftovers are always a good thing!

New Haven parents have so many food options for children it’s hard to try everything in one weekend. Parents and children can come together to make a list of their top family friendly places to try and visit one (or two) every month for the rest of the year. Families can always bond over food. And if you find a favorite place, make eating there a part of your family tradition for years to come.
