Having lived in NYC in the mid to late 90s, this is where my transformation to a somewhat foodie began. Since I lived in the GP and MH areas, my fond memories include Sarge's, Les Halles, Patria, and especially L'Expess since it was practically next door to me and 24/7. Great Pizza and Deli remain a distant memory. Sure we have great stuff here in Southern Cal, but nothing compares to what NYC has to offer. So I return about 10 years later with 2 of my kids (7) and would like to get some recommendations that are kid/adult friendly.
They are fairly good eaters for their age and partial to steak, sushi, pizza,mussels,yakitori, etc.
We are looking for places that will be fun for them but also have something for adults as well.
Here is what I have so far and we will be staying in the theatre district but can travel anywhere:
-Keens ( for our pretheatre dinner)
-John's Pizza (vicinity and an old fave)
-Serendipity (never been but looks like the kids will enjoy it)
-Yakitori Totto ( we love every bit of the chicken)
-Sarges (for breakfast and deli, sentimental reasons)
-LExpress (sentimental reasons)
-Shake Shack ( for burgers and we'll be visiting the museum in uws)
I could sure use a sushi place with a great omakase offering but also kid friendly..Yasuda remains one of my all time faves. I could also use a few kid friendly recs that are unique to NYC. I would love to dine at EMP but just not with the kids. TIA !
