Kind of a combination of the usual tourist requests. I've noticed that many of the best beer places in Manhattan and Brooklyn are bars and not appropropriate for an 11 and 9 year old. Places like Rattle and Hum and the Ginger Man have great beer and serve food, but the food is meh (I've heard). It seems like the one place that could fit my description is the Blind Tiger in the village, but it's small and frequently mobbed. I'm looking for both lunch and dinner options and realize when I say dinner, I'm in there no later than 7:30 p.m. with kids out of deference to those who prefer an adult atmosphere when having one.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
