Bringing a 10 year old to NYC for the first time - Dining Advice Needed

Hatori Hanzo | Jun 22, 2012 09:09 AM

I used to live in NYC but now I live in the land of beer, meat, and gastronomy (a.k.a. Chicago). I'm taking my 10 year old niece to New York for a weekend and wanted some dining advice. She lives in the suburbs so I would really like to take her somewhere that looks impressive even if the food is maybe not as great.

I was contemplating between Spice Market and Buddakan since both look like nothing she has ever seen. They also seem like a good choice because we can sample a lot of items which is great for a 10 year old. Originally I was leaning towards Spice Market but many of the recent reviews have said that everything has become rather bland. I would love to get some feedback. The key is for it to be the type of place we can actually make a reservation for. While not in the same area I was also considering DBGB. Thoughts?

If anybody would like to share any other good advice or suggestions for things to do with a 10 year old I would be grateful. Even though I generally do whatever I can to avoid touristy areas I don't want to deprive my niece to some of the quintessential new york expereinces such as seeing time square at night.
