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: “Casimir” 1022A Lexington Ave. UES, NYC & 103 Ave. B LES
- Baby B Rank: Rollin– Not only did we have 2 BIG A@# Strollers, and 2 teething babies…we had 4 adults and walked right up and sat down at a table big enough for all of us! Woot Woot!!! No folding strollers, no high chairs- it’s just not how we roll yet. The kiddos rolled right up to the side of the table and joined us, brunch side. Mind you this was the UES location, I repeat the UES location, which screams SPACE. I haven’t hit up the LES yet and will do so as soon as I can with an update on here. Side note- Giggle is right down the street. Score.
- Food: The brunch menu was pretty standard but very yum. They were advertising a corn and squash soup which we never saw- it was red and creamy like a tomato bisque but still yummy according to Lindsay…and they take special orders for eggs and diet requests. Awesome. Plus, no evil eyes when feeding our babes at the table.
- Price: $12-19 per meal for brunch Yelp
- Location: UES and LES Spots- We hit up the UES location off Lexington and 73rd. This typically is a trek from our hood in the East Village/Styu Town but with GETT car service for the rest of 2014 it’s a no brainer…$10 flat rate rides people…$10. Boom. Download that app now.
