Kids Eat NYC has a mission to provide a memorable and elegant dining experience for kids (up to 17) and get them to think differently about food and make it more exciting for them at an earlier age. Kids Eat NYC (similar to Restaurant Week) teams up with forward thinking NYC restaurants and each restaurant creates their own take on the "kids menu",  one like no other "regular" kids menu. Those prevalent foods like chicken fingers, mac and cheese, grilled cheese, and burgers and fries, are prohibited during Kids Eat NYC. Instead, kids can expect complex and savory flavors like Henry’s ‘Cool Cucumber Chow Mein’, Miranda’s ‘Grilled Vegetable Garganelli’, and Vai’s ‘Pancetta Salmon Saltimbocca’.
