Recommendations for special lunch in Manhattan on a weekday with two small children in tow?

pootle | Jun 7, 2011 02:22 PM

We are getting married on Tuesday of next week in Manhattan (we are from the UK). Looking for recommendations for a lunch after that feels special but is suitable to take our 3 year old and nearly-2-year old. They are reasonably well behaved but they are small kids...... and I don't want to feel awkward that they are disturbing peoples peaceful lunch in a place that isn't too child-friendly.

lthough the marriage bureau is on Worth Street, it doesn't have to be especially nearby....I suspect we'll be up early due to jet-lagged small people, so will probably get married quite early and have the time to travel after. With that in mind, a special brunch rather than lunch is also a possibility.

There will just be ourselves and our kids. Neither of them need a high chair. Pretty flexible on budget since we don't get married every day. Most cuisines are good - my little girl won't eat anything too spicy though.

Editing to add that if anyone has recommendations for any other good child-friendly places for the rest of our 4-day trip they would be welcome also. My kids love pizza and sushi.
