As mentioned in an earlier post, I am not a huge fan of eating out with young kids. It’s not good for the digestion. But then again, there is Pop Burger.
This unassuming and very hip burger joint in the trendy Meatpacking district is actually one of my favorite super duper secret places to grab a special lunch with the girls. The burgers are delicious, and they come in sets of two which are perfect for teeny hands. They also have a nice selection of healthier items like a salad or an excellent chicken burger which pair nicely with a thick classic milkshake and crispy fries.
Pop Burger is actually a popular late night club /hangout for the young and fabulous, but during the day they play upbeat ’80s and ’90s classics and my girls love to dance and flail around the place like Beyonce. Warning: the music is loud! So don’t send them with the grandparents because they will totally hate your guts but I assure you, if you were born in the ’70s or ’80s you will love it. I have caught myself singing out loud and seriously, who would have guessed I know all of the words to “Rhythm Nation.” I have vetted this place many times and always leave happy. The only downside is that they have the most terrible flimsy cheap napkins known to man – bring a packet of wipes – it does get messy.
ps: There is also a location in Midtown.
I am a huge fan and you’re right it is a perfect place to grab a it w/ the children.
Great suggestion! Sounds like a good alternative to Shake Shack in the winter since it’s indoors. Hopefully the lines are shorter too…although I do love my Shake Shack cheeseburger.
Hmmm, sounds good! My brother and sister-in-law live in Manhattan and they took us on an amazing kid-friendly tour last year (with our 4-month and 3-year old!). I’ll send them this link to see if they have checked it out and as inspiration for our next visit!
PLEASE NOTE THAT POP BURGER HAS CLOSED ITS LOCATION IN CHELSEA. THEY STILL HAVE LOCATIONS IN MIDTOWN.
