Standard Hotel at Narcissa in The East Village NYC

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.

The Spot:  “Narcissa” 21 Cooper Square (corner of 5th St and Bowery) New York, NY 10005 (212) 228 3344

  • Baby B Rank:  Rollin– This spot is located in The Standard Hotel. I’ve always wanted to try it, but alas it seemed way too trendy for baby’s and buggies. However, we put on our big girl/boy panties and we rolled in. They were great. We sat in the garden which was great for our party bc we can get a little rowdy. I forgot a baby spoon, bc B man eats his meals with us now, and they were more than helpful in finding a teeny tiny sugar spoon for the little man to use. At one point the B man was over it. He was over Narcissa and over The Standard, it just became so “last night” for him. So the hostess was awesome and took me into the hotel part and actually hooked us up with the hotel staff to let us chill in a suite, so I could nurse him and let him crawl around. Very Very Very cool.
  • Food:  Interesting, but under whelming considering the cost. The carrot fries were really great though. I wouldn’t recommend the shrimp salad. I ordered the Branzino which I was happy with and my husband ordered the Duck, which he wasn’t too over the moon for.
  • Price:  Pretty expensive. This was a special dinner for us. $40 plus a head.
  • Location:  Cooper Square (corner of 5th St and Bowery)
