We're a couple of foodie parents who have spawned foodie kids. Before kids and years ago, I happily ate at places like Union Square Cafe, Gotham, Patria and more recently Craft. Our kids are 13 & 10 and actually enjoy food and the whole dining experience; some of their favorites include duck confit, lobster, anything with truffle oil and stinky cheese trays. This will be their 1st visit to NYC. I don't want to break the bank so moderate is probably best, as is a casual atmosphere. Neither of them are huge eaters, so we often order for them to share one meal, so I guess places that are sympathetic to this would be good. Coming from Toronto, we have our share of Asian places so I would pass on that.
Where should we go?
