My name is Kristen Ruhlin, I’m a new mama to a boy named Bastian.
This blog is all about hitting the top restaurants with BIG strollers, tiny babies in big cities. So check in to see where Bastian and I have ventured and if we were asked to leave once they saw our HUGE SUV of a stroller roll in(we have a Bugaboo Cameleon, it’s big). We’re eaten’ food, burpin babies and taken names.
RANKING: Riding Dirty (1)- the lowest of the low; Strollin (5)- kindly asked us to hit the road; Rollin (10)- these ballers know how to roll.
The Spot: “The Ninth Ward” 180 Second Ave. NY LES, East Village
- Baby B Rank: Rollin/Strollin– First off Diana, who set up our very large party reservation was great. She threw in Mimosa’s for our drink specials and let my baby B stay in his stroller in the garden which they said had never been done before. Very sweet! The food/service was the only thing really lacking. However, I will note we had a party of 16 which is hard for anyone to get all the orders exactly right. There is also a large bathroom I was able to fit the stroller in when the B man needed to collect himself. I like the garden area in the back too- it’s outside but covered…love that.
- Food: The kitchen was back up and running so we had the regular brunch menu, yippy!! Some items were not as they should be- mainly my Avocado salad without any avocados- sadness, I ordered chicken for $4 bucks more and it was 3 very thin pieces/strips. Some folks didn’t get sandwiches until everyone else had finished like 10 min after…my cousin and I were the only ones to order a salad and she was the VERY last to be served. There were water bottles but no glasses for a good 15+ min. The french fries were pretty amazing I will say and the burgers looked on point. Yelp it.
- Price: $12-19 per meal for brunch; $15 for unlimited drinks w/ whole table participation; $13 cocktails, happy hour is buy one get one beers and wells
- Location: LES, Lower East Side, East Village, Union Square
