Bronx Zoo, Arthur Avenue? Need info ASAP!!

janie | May 6, 2008 06:57 PM

Heading to the Bronx Zoo tommorow, wednesday, for a day of zoo fun, with almost 3 year old, and 3 adults...need good inexpensive food, nice atmosphere if we decide to sit down and eat, and most of all child friendly, as the little one will be tired for certain...Was thinking is it feasible to stop first at Mike's Deli in the Arthur Ave Market and get sandwiches to go, and then eat them at the zoo? Read through the previous posts about Arthur Avenue, and alot of info is on the outdated side--but would this seem a good list of places to go back and hit on the way home from the zoo:

Randazzo's for seafood
Madonia for fresh cannolis
Borgattis for fresh pasta
Egidio's or DeLillo's for pastry???

And whose got the best fresh Mozzarella in the area?

Also, is Dominick's a place you could bring a toddler to? How exactly does it work with no menus, and do you actually eat without knowing the price of what you're getting? And is it family style, meaning we would have to share the same dish? Thanks for the inside info--

I'm assuming we won't have time for a sit down dinner, but grab something to go to eat in the zoo, and then some good groceries, and perhaps a pastry somewhere late afternoon, for the ride home....

thanks for the suggestions...all these years in NY in Queens, and have never been to the Bronx Zoo or Arthur Avenue, so I'm counting on the Bronx experts out there to lead me to the best bets! Thank you!!
