I'm looking for a place to go on Saturday night with my kids, ages 7 and 4. The kids are pretty good, but not up for a fine dining place, and the 4 year old is pretty picky. I want to avoid chains. I thought Chinese might be a good option, as the 4 y.o. will usually eat lo mein. I'm dying to check out Szechuan Gourmet, but I fear there won't be anything for the kids there. We are staying in midtown, but willing to travel. Any Chinatown suggestions (not dim sum)?
I was also thinking of something like La Bonne Soupe. Is it ok to take kids there on a Sat. night? The other issue is I'm still not sure of the time we'll be going, so I'm hesitant to make a reservation.
If all else fails, where can we get good pizza around Times Square?
