My 14-year-old niece is visiting for three days. Doing the whole tourist thing and am probably dragging her to a few restaurants that the adults in our group enjoy for most of the time. I would like to indulge her for one meal and she's mentioned that her favorite thing is the Chinese/Mongolian stir-fry bars (like Stir Crazy or Big Bowl chain restaurants). From what I understand from Google and these boards -- these places are basically nonexistent for a sit-down dinner in Manhattan.
Any recommendations here? If not the stir-fry bar, is there a restaurant with an atmosphere like one of the Asian chain restaurants? Trying to stay near Midtown but not that picky. Thanks!!
