Our little family of three will be making a flying visit (only to 3 nights and two days) to New York at the end of May and will be staying in Midtown. Our son will be 17 months old we we arrive and has been in many restaurants around the world since he was born. He is very well behaved and will most likely be asleep, so we are looking for child friendly restaurants that won't balk at the idea of a Bugaboo sitting beside our table and may even have a high chair should he wake.
As dedicated foodies, we are looking for a modern American dining experience (something new and happening as opposed to traditional French style) that is baby friendly. As an example of the sort of thing we are looking for, we took our son to Boulevard in San Francisco when passed through this February.
Some of the places we have shortlisted so far include: The Modern, Gilt, Gramercy Tavern & Aquavit. but would like advice on whether these would be appropiate with the little one.
We would also appreciate other suggestions for both lunch and dinner, but we we primarily want to focus on dinner and location is also key as we ideally would like somewhere nearby to where we are staying.
Hope you can help.
