I'm not sure where we're staying, but we'll be in town soon for three weekdays, and looking for great chow opportunities. Chowpup is an enthusiastic eater, but he's little, so no Uber-formal Temples to Serious Cuisine, all mouth-searing Sichuan, or four-hour-long wine-flight tasting menus. I'm thinking ethnic, relatively cheap, and unique/particular to NYC (we're from the Philly 'burbs for point of ref).
We'll be doing a few of the usual touristy things, like the Brooklyn Children's Museum, MoMa, the Museum of Natural History, the Central Park Zoo.... so, anything close to those that would be suitable for us & the little guy? Anything not-to-be-missed?
Cuisines we're not into: Ethiopian, Indian, anything that revolves around offal. Other than that, we're pretty game. :) Bonus points for a really good Italian restaurant that isn't too serious/formal for Junior to be welcome.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you can offer!
