My sister is in town with the 3 kids and even though I thought I knew NYC restaurants pretty well, I suddenly realized that since I don't have kids I never thought of it from the point of view of a parent. I need a restaurant that will keep the kids AND the adults happy, without being a cheesy tourist trap. I love New York restaurants but all of my favorite places would not be appropriate for the kids. Of course since they are tourists their hotel is in midtown, but I think we could go either midtown or downtown.
Basically someplace that purely New York, interesting and creative food for the adults but good for the kids too. Any Ideas?
