It's no secret that the New York Botanical Garden, the Bronx Zoo, and Wave Hill are all cultural gems and year-round destinations for families, or that all are located in our city's northernmost borough. The real question on many parents' minds, however, might actually be, “but where do we eat?” As a mother of three in the Bronx, that question is easy to answer. The hard part is narrowing down the plentiful options.
The surrounding neighborhoods of Riverdale and the Bronx Park area are just as picturesque and wonderful as the attractions themselves, complete with myriad spots to stop off for a bite. So we've rounded up several dining options near each destination where families can fill up before or after a fun-filled day.
