Lived in the east & west village for many years; left under great duress. We're returning for a long weekend, and our 16-month-old son's first real trip to the city. He's very well behaved and a great eater. We want to show him our "home" (and we are just dying for some good food!). Where can we go that we'll love and he won't offend with his presence? We're open to all kinds of food, but hopefully at least one Japanese meal and at least one Italian.
FWIW, we'll be staying in Battery Park City but can move around well (south of 23rd street). Thanks!
