toddler-dragging S.F. visitor

I'm a 'hound from San Francisco planning a week-long visit, and I'll be toting my 2 year old daughter. I could use some help with toddler-friendly restaurants in Manhattan; they should have high chairs, but not necessarily crayons and kids menus. I'm sure it goes without saying on this board that I'm not looking for those "family friendly" chains that I can find in flyover land. We'll be staying with friends in Greenwich Village, but we plan to traverse the city, so location is not the number one priority -- although bonus points will be awarded for restaurants close to major attractions/museums/zoos! My family likes a wide range of ethnic foods, but is not very adventurous about things like organ meat. My ideal restaurant is a smallish neighborhood place with really excellent food, no attitude, an easy and casual ambiance, and somewhat controlled prices. (DH and I will save the Per Se dinner for our next kid-free visit.) That said, cheap hole-in-the-wall and slightly tonier restaurant recs are welcome too. Bonus points will also be awarded for restaurants I can book on OpenTable, for ease and swiftness. So, folks, where do you take your kids/nephews/nieces/grandkids when you want a yummy meal or snack? (And what do you order when you get there?) My kid is pretty well-behaved in restaurants, since she's eaten practically half of her meals in them, so I promise we won't disturb you! Thanks!!
