I am visiting with a friend and both our daughters in early October. We want to eat well, but at mostly moderately-priced restaurants. We arrive on a Saturday and leave on Tuesday afternoon. We are staying in the Midtown East area (East 50th and 3rd). I have tried to find kid-friendly places near the attractions that I think we will be visiting, but this is difficult, as you never know how the kids are going to do, etc., but here is the partial list:
breakfasts: figure that we'll just pick up and go in the morning and find a greasy spoon or something near where we are going, except on Sunday, want to take the kids to Norma's for brunch before the Museum of Nat. History.
lunches: Serendpity (I know....not worth it, etc.... 'cept my friend has always wanted to take her daughter there), Balthazar, Katz's, Sarabeth's, burgers (Shake Shack?)
dinners: Otto, somewhere near theatre for a 5:30 meal on the Sunday at 46th and Broadway - maybe Trecolori or Virgil's, Landmarc
must-do snacking: Max Brenner, Dylan's
Any and all suggestions welcome!
