Here are a few pet-friendly restaurants I recommend in NYC and Brooklyn.

The well-known burger joint in the East, Shake Shack, is a must-eat fast food restaurant for many tourists visiting New York. In addition to its famous burgers and milkshakes, this restaurant is also known for being pet-friendly, with a special doggy menu featuring delicious homemade dog biscuits topped with creamy peanut butter and vanilla custard sauce.

This restaurant in the Upper East Side is highly rated and quite popular, with many pet owners bringing their dogs here to eat. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and even have a brunch menu on weekends. You don't have to leave your dog behind to enjoy the delicious food, as the restaurant provides water and dog biscuits, and even chicken for your furry friend to enjoy.

Boat Basin Cafe

This restaurant located in the Upper West Side district is next to the beautiful Hudson River and is often visited by dog owners who have just finished walking their dogs in Riverside Park to relax here with their furry companions. In the evening after taking your dogs for a run, you can come here and have a margarita while watching the stunning sunset.

Fred's Restaurant

The gathering place for dog lovers is probably this American restaurant in Xicheng District. The walls in the restaurant are covered with pictures of dogs, giving customers a feeling of being surrounded by dogs! Moreover, this restaurant allows dogs to come inside and stay with their owners, instead of being tied up outside on the balcony, and thus has received special praise.

Lucky Dog

The bar in Brooklyn is well-known, and if the owner wants to have a drink without leaving the dog at home, welcome to Lucky Dog. Dogs are treated as VIPs here, and they can climb onto seats or lie on the bar without being stopped, quite free, and therefore become a place for owners to drink with their beloved dogs.

Von is a bar with a beautiful atmosphere and lighting, and an extensive drink menu to choose from. The establishment welcomes dogs inside, although they cannot drink with their owners, they will have access to water and snacks. However, it's worth noting that on crowded weekends, dogs won't be allowed inside for safety reasons.
