We live upstate and are bringing our 4 and 6 year old daughters to the city this weekend. Saturday night we are seeing a show at Madison Sq Garden and are staying near 28th st/7th ave.
The kids are well behaved in restaurants and will eat a range of fare (no sushi, indian, or other asian, though). We love a good steak or pasta dish. We are looking for a spot to grab an early dinner before the 7:30 pm show. Any suggestions in that general vicinity for where we can get a table around 4:30 or 5 (price range: less than $40/entree) and get out in time for our show? We are open to very casual (such as a diner) to anything somewhat upscale, but nothing with a formal dress code.
Thanks in advance!
