67 Burger might be the easiest place to eat out with kids in Fort Greene. The name says it all. What kid doesn’t like a burger? Mine, actually, but luckily there are veggie burgers for the vegetarians and meat-snubbing one year olds among us. I don’t eat meat either, but my husband thinks their hamburger is one of the better of its kind in the neighborhood.
The format is this: choose a regular, veggie or turkey burger or grilled chicken cutlet. Then choose a style, such as the 67 Burger with blue cheese and bacon, or the Cheese Lover’s with cheddar, jack and swiss, or the Greek with feta, olive tapenade and crispy artichokes. All burgers come with tomato, lettuce, onion and pickles. You can also order toppings a la carte. There are a few salads to choose from as well. And they make an extremely tempting milkshake. It’s not on the menu, but I recommend ordering a “black and white” shake, made with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. They also have beer and wine.
The kids’ menu has the basics: grilled cheese, hot dog, kids’ hamburger, cheeseburger or chicken sandwich. Each is served with curly fries.
Aside from the menu, things that make this place kid-friendly are the accessibility—it’s a big space with plenty of room to maneuver a stroller. The noise volume is usually pretty high, so you won’t feel self-conscious if you have a babbling baby or a talkative 3 year old along. The floors are cement, so anything that gets spilled or dropped won’t be a big deal. The sidewalk patio is an easy place to sit with all the distractions of the Lafayette/ Fulton intersection to keep kids entertained. Waitstaff have always been friendly and patient with us too—the people we’ve met at 67 Burger seem to enjoy kids.
