Kid/baby-friendly + Saturday evening for group of 9

bgbc | Dec 28, 2012 09:16 AM

SF hound here, visiting Manhattan for a few days with the family. I've seen some great suggestions for kid-friendly restaurants but am wondering specifically about Saturday evening (earlier side -- 5:30ish) for a group of five adults, an extremely mellow baby, a toddler and a 5- and an 8-year-old. I'm assuming Saturdays are busier and perhaps less kid-friendly than other evenings.

Looking for someone with entrees in the $12-$25 range, preferred locations Flatiron, Chelsea or Midtown but happy to fudge those a little. No Chinese for various fussiness reasons, no Indian unless it's stellar (and meets the kid-friendly criteria of course). If Thai is good in NYC, that would be great, although as I grew in in Australia it would have to be pretty awesome :)

The boys are well-behaved but not inclined to sit perfectly still for a long time (i.e., much more than an hour), so somewhere that takes reservations and is timely would be perfect. We'd be done by 7 at the latest. (And of course we always whisk any antsy kids out for a walk around the block if necessary.)

We (SF adults) don't get out as much as we used to so would love to go somewhere that's unlikely to have anything like a match in the Bay Area. This all feels like I'm asking too much, but I'm hopeful all the same!
