Decent Eats Near Central Park & 60's

I am taking a school group (children age 10-11 and parents... generally group around 20-25ppl). We are spending the day meandering Central Park, ending with the zoo.

Looking for a place for early dinner (as we need to get a train back home from Grand Central @5:15... and that generally gets us home about 7:30ish... food is a must before leaving the city). We will do brown bag-picnic-esque lunch in the park.

Any recommendations that don't break the bank ($10-$15 a child... but the upper end definetly expecting money's worth). I don't want to go tooo ethnic, as then child needs to buy another meal at some point. Previous trip we played it safe, ate at GC... so kinda hoping to not do that.

Looked into Alice's Tea Cup II (cause the Wee Tee was sounding like a decent deal for the children, and offering enough to keep the adults happy)- but they're booked for an event.

So... not expensive... children & adults... kinda quick-ish... within perhap 10 min walk of Central Park Zoo.

Thanks for any help!
