Village Taverna Union Square

Village Taverna Union Square. This is free…need I say more. You know those olives are singing to you.

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.

RANKINGRiding Dirty (1)- the lowest of the low;  Strollin (5)- kindly asked us to hit the road; Rollin (10)- these ballers know how to roll.

  • Baby B Rank:  Rollin– LOVE LOVE LOVE, this place for Greek food. I’ve actually been to 3 of their locations and love each of them. This specific location near Union Square is larger than the East Village spot- so they were MORE than happy to seat us with the big stroller and gave us a huge space all to ourselves in the back, away from the crowd. Also, stalker note, it’s right around the corner from Alec Baldwin’s apt. so maybe you can spot a celebrity if that’s on your list of things to do. Check them out on Yelp.
  • Food: Amazing. The trio dip sampler is the way to go for cold appetizers, and grilled octopus is amazing. I usually get the crab cakes app as my main dish at the East Village location bc they are HUGE and are all lump crab meat with hardly any breading. BUT, they don’t have the crab cakes at this location. I got the grilled chicken and it was large enough for my hubby and I to split and take food home! Amazing amazing food!!
  • Price: $36 bucks after tax, and tip. Can’t beat it for the quality and HUGE quantity.
  • Location:  Union Square
