Hi! My husband, his parents, my 2 preschool age chidren and myself will be headed to Manhattan next month. I went to culinary school and am a major foodie, so I'm looking for recommendations on where to take my family to eat during our trip (obviously kid friendly); I don't mind going to a hole in the wall type place and am looking for amazing food, affordably priced (for Manhattan, of course), served in an unpretentious atmosphere.We'll be staying on the East Side, on 39th street, but don't mind occasionally traveling to the upper west side (that seems to be the general consensus on where to find a densely populated area of great food), but I'd also appreciate some recommendations near our area. I'm aware that we need to stay away from TS and I am avoiding chain restaurants.
Thanks for your suggestions!
