Celebrating birthday w/child turning 4

Posted by sharbev on February 19, 2009

We've got a great day in Manhattan planned for our son's 4th birthday this Sunday. Just one thing left:

Is there a restaurant we can go to midday that will sing Happy Birthday to him? (I know it's cheesy, but they love it.)

We'll be in the Bowery in the AM and working our way uptown towards the end of the really, any location is potentially a fit.

If you've never been to Benihana (, I'd definitely recommend it. The place promises an "entertaining" dining experience, especially with the hibachi-style seating arrangements.

I've been here for a friend's birthday (albeit a slightly older friend), and the birthday boy/girl is guaranteed to get a staff sung "Happy Birthday". In my experience, the other diners seated alongside joined in as well!

This also looks like a pretty good list of family-friendly possibilities ( and it includes Ishan's Benihana suggestion. Good luck and have fun!
