Places To Take A Newborn In And Around Philadelphia
Good news - there is a wide range of eateries in the city that are just perfect for new mothers, providing the perfect blend of kid-friendliness and relaxation - along with good food.
Class And Crunch
One of the best venues in the city for mothers is Mission Taqueria. Located at 1516 Sansom Street, Rittenhouse, Philly Mag highlights the venue as being just perfect for adults - the tacos and margarita offerings it provides are great light afternoon breaks, as well as being easy to eat when handling newborns or young children. What’s more, the venue has a fantastic setting for other events in the journey toward becoming a mother. Christening parties, bridal parties, and baby showers are all welcomed in their suites, which accommodate up to 40 individuals. This means there’s plenty of room to play games at the baby shower and make it something to be truly remembered well after the baby is born.
Ristorante Pesto is located at 1915 S Broad St and is a well-known Italian family favorite. Operating an all-day menu and open to families with babies upwards, it’s a great place to unwind with a truly authentic, heartening Italian experience. That family experience is what makes it great, and what makes it welcoming for new moms. You want a day out where it’s going to be OK if the baby cries if there’s a bit of mess, and if you need a time out for disruption - family restaurants like Ristorante Pesto offer exactly that and are all in a great place to relax and meet up with friends.
In the suburbs
If you’re willing to drive out to the suburbs, one of the greatest kid-friendly restaurants in Philadelphia is, according to Eater, The Landing Kitchen. Located on 617 Righters Ferry Rd, Bala Cynwyd, family-friendly activities are all around for older kids; rooms for playing and coloring with chalk, and lots of room for relaxing. The food is excellent, too. The food is created by Top Chef winner Nick Elmi and appeals to all ages - from young children up to adults. For new moms, this is a Godsend. A place to keep the kids engaged, while providing ample time to relax and continue fostering a connection with the newborn - all while eating genuinely world-class meals.
Philadelphia in general is a family-friendly city. That’s part of the reason that families keep continuing to bump up the birth rate - it’s a great place to raise kids. Every eatery in the city is likely to be welcoming, but, some are even better than others.
