To call this Brooklyn Heights restaurant family-friendly is an understatement. Beyond the Spot's clever door entrance—cut into different sizes for adults, kids and pets—lies an otherworldly network of Super Mario Brothers-inspired copper tubing, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-style pressure gauges, and whimsical found object and art-adorned walls. Consulting chefs from former Soho bistro Shorty’s.32 and Asian diner Vynl in Hell’s Kitchen elevate standard kids’ fare with juicy, grass-fed beef burgers, meaty Asian spiced wings, and crunchy fried chicken, but there are still simple items like a four-bite American grilled cheese. Downstairs, nautically decorated booths and clustered tables, fashioned from an enormous old sign, make great use of the cavernous space. Upstairs is lounge seating, warmly lit by beaded lampshades, and flanked by geometric-patterned drapes. You’ll also find a couple of computers for use, a Foosball table, and a library of children's books and games, as well as the full list of activities and kids’ classes offered throughout the day. Portions cater to small people, so it’s wise to order double for adults.The schedule of children’s classes can change on a monthly basis.
Storytime, led by the restaurant’s creative director, is Mon, Wed, Fri, at noon. Singalongs are Wed and Fri, 10:15am and 11:15am; Dance sessions are Thu at 11am
