Large family-friendly restaurant

ceestand | Aug 13, 2012 06:58 AM

I'm looking for a family-friendly restaurant for tonight. There's 21 of us. 10 adults, 11 kids - 10 of which are 6 years old and under.

We had reservations at Ninja, but that's now been called off. Been to Mars 2112 (never again), Stardust, et al, all of the usual suspects. The place doesn't have to be especially themed for kids, just has to have an approachable menu, and some elbow room for a group with 3 babies and 5 toddlers. The kids aren't out of control, but we don't want to bother anyone's quiet evening out. A couple of the adults are pickier (read: xenophobic) than the kids, so anything "too ethnic" would likely be out.

We'll be in the financial district all day and then the minivan caravan back to long island, so someplace in Brooklyn or Queens with the possibility of parking would potentially be better than someplace elsewhere in Manhattan.

Some places on the short list for consideration are Bubby's Brooklyn, Cowgirl, RollNRoaster (been there, would like something nicer), Max Brenner (been there for desert, not sure about dinner), Peanut Butter Co (location too small?), Hill Country.
