I am looking for a place that has good, solid family fare & has an open style diing forum where a large family group can enjoy themselves without the calm, reserve of a couples only type of place. (not the theme spots please!)
I am hoping to get my rather large family together when I am in Manhattan (they still live out on LI) to enjoy a great NYC eatery
Was thinking maybe something along the Italian or German food lines - but am open to suggestions.
If it is in an area of the city where a walk afterwards would be nice in the early fall - all the better
Note: included in the group are some moody teenagers and elementary age types.
Really hoping for some fun suggestions!!
