While chicken nuggets and hot dogs may not be the domain of high-end restaurants and hotels, The St. Regis New York still manages to offer you the best of luxury while satisfying your kids’ appetites in its various dining options.
Your best bet for the kiddies is the 24-hour in-room dining menu, which has a variety of dishes that children will enjoy. The “Mini Butler Bites” section is designed just for kids with classics such as hot dogs, chicken fingers, triple-decker peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches, grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti and mini pizzas.
The rest of the menu has other great dishes for older children, too. The breakfast offerings include Rice Krispies and Frosted Flakes cereals and treats such as Belgian waffles drizzled with maple syrup and fresh raspberries and strawberries, and pancakes with chocolate chips or caramelized bananas. For dinner, several pizza, pasta, salad and soup options will suit children, and the signature King Cole burger with house-cured pickles will satisfy even the biggest of kids. Come dessert time, they’ll love the parlor-style banana split with hot fudge and cherries or the giant ice cream sandwich made with chocolate chip cookies.
The New York hotel’s more casual restaurant, Astor Court, located just off the lobby, is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and Sunday brunch and is appropriate for children, especially during the day. The restaurant’s afternoon tea service includes a variety of kid-friendly finger sandwiches like egg salad or curried chicken salad. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s other establishment — King Cole Bar — better suits adults, but no rules preclude you from bringing your kids along for a meal.
