Will be staying at the UWS for 2 weeks 81st. We will have our 2 1/2 year old with us. We will probably have dinner out most nights (early) however we don't like chain restaurants eg Macdonalds, subway, Mars 2002, Planet Hollywood.
I would like some suggestions for nice, inexpensive places that where bringing a child will not be a problem.
we plan on going to the boat basin cafe a couple of times if food is ok as it is in a park.
Also what are the liquor laws in NYC like (I am from Aust) can kids go into bars???
