Manhattan with a 10 Year Old

antzona | Nov 8, 2011 11:43 AM

I let my nephew pick a destination for a vacation for his 10th birthday present. He picked New York. We are going in early January to experience the city around Christmas and the New Year. We are staying at the Affinia at 37th and Lexington and I need some advice on food. Like most kids, he loves pizza, hot dogs, and steak.

This is what I have planned so far, but I am flexible.

Joe's Pizza
Keen's (or a cheaper option if possible)
Papaya King
Maybe Eataly

I would also love a diner with some character. I read about Empire or there is Murray Hill Diner that is near our hotel. Any advice would be appreciated. I also thought about Junior's for some cheesecake.

Thanks in advance. Oh yeah, we will only be there for four days.
