Simple is often the way to go, especially when you have kids in tow. When it comes to lunch, your little ones may not be able to appreciate all the nuanced flavors of the fennel-and-chicory salad at your favorite bistro, but the classic comfort sandwiches at Peanut Butter & Co. will undoubtedly be a hit. As you can probably imagine, this cozy Greenwich Village shop offers peanut butter sandwiches in a wide variety of creative, crowd-pleasing flavors, so stroll on in on your next family day and let the kids pick something crazy from the menu. There’s the Cookie Dough Surprise, which is made with chocolate chips between a layer of peanut butter and a layer of vanilla cream cheese. There’s the Black and Tan, with peanut butter on toast drizzled with chocolate sauce. And of course there’s the Elvis, a gooey grilled sandwich made with peanut butter, bananas, and honey that was among the King’s favorite snacks. Every sandwich is served with a side of carrot sticks and potato chips, just like mom used to do. Add a glass of milk and you’ve got a pairing that can’t be topped by the most skilled sommelier. For a smooth ride, don’t overthink—just enjoy the delicious simplicity of these lunchtime favorites.
