Upper East Side Kids
Jennifer Salzer, D.D.S.
663 Park Ave., Upper East Side
Dr. Salzer is one of our favorite dentists, thanks to her gentle, nearly painless procedures. She specializes in Invisalign braces, clear braces and clear wires, rapid orthodontics, early intervention, surgical orthodontics, and TMJ.
225 E. 60th St., Upper East Side
It’s really all about the frozen hot chocolate here, to the extent that we can’t really vouch for many of the other offerings on the menu. We do know that Serendipity 3 (named for its three founders, not three outposts) came into its own as a coffee shop. Nowadays, it offers a dense menu of classics (both savory and sweet), though kids really do freak out for the hot chocolate. Reservations suggested.
Madeline’s Tea @ Bemelmans Bar
The Carlyle, 35 E. 76th St., Upper East Side
From October through mid-December, the Carlyle’s legendary Bemelmans Bar—beloved for its wall-to-wall murals painted by Madeline author and illustrator, Ludwig Bemelmans—opens up for afternoon tea and cake for kids. Little ones get to sing Madeline’s songbook along with Tina de Varon at the piano.
Mark Hochberg, D.M.D.
192 E. 75th St., Upper East Side
Dr. Hochberg has made what kids dread the most an outing they look forward to. It all begins in the lobby: Kids can play in an arcade full of games while they wait. Somehow, Dr. Hochberg makes the appointment that follows as painless as possible.
