Next week my 10 year old son and I, along with my parents, are going to NYC as their birthday present to him. We are seeing two Broadway shows, going to a Mets game, and doing all the other touristy things -- they really want to show him the town. We've got a few meals planned but need a few other recommendations. He's not a particularly adventurous eater -- he almost always orders steaks or burgers -- but can easily handle "grown-up" restaurants. I think we'd all love a great atmosphere that would be really fun for him, but the rest of us care about the food just as much.
So far he and I are going to Prime Burger or Burger Joint (but which?) for a quick lunch the day we arrive. Dinner that night is at Pastis. We also have reservations at Pietro's the next night.
I am mostly looking for a fun night out on Saturday, as we will have seen a B'way matinee that day and will be all rested up with no other evening plans. Also looking for a more relaxing dinner on Sunday night, probably closer the hotel (Rhiga Royal), since we will have been to the Mets game that day. We can also use a lunch suggestion for Monday before leaving for our flights. Thinking about going to Norma's then, or maybe before the game.
