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. Standard kids’ fare is elevated with juicy, grass-fed beef burgers 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, buckets of toys, 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 12:15 p.m. Singalongs are Tue. and Fri., 11 a.m. and Sat. and Sun. 1 p.m.; Dance sessions are Thu. at 11 a.m.
