New York eating with 10yr old

LadyG01 | Mar 20, 2012 03:52 PM

Hello. My daughter and I will be in New York for 5 nights in April. We are staying at the Helmsly for 2 nights (arriving Sunday 7PM) and then the Empire Hotel. Neither place serves breakfast so I'm needing suggestions on where we should eat for meals during our stay. I was thinking of going to Serendipity3 for desserts on Sunday after check-in to get that out of the way as she has been raving about trying frozen hot chocolate. I personally could care less. On Monday we are doing a tour with NYSee tours and that will place us in Chelsea Market for lunch and ends in Times Square around 4PM. For dinner that night I'd prefer something not more than $50 since we will be shopping too. On Wednesday we are spending the day at AMNH, but will need suggestions on breakfast. I prefer to eat a healthy breakfast with protein & not lots of bread or carbs, my daughter likes pancakes & eggs as well. For dinner this night I'd like to stay under $50. Breakfast for the whole stay can be as much as $20, lunch $50 and dinner the other nights should stay near $50 for just the 2 of us. I don't want to worry about reservations, unless they're easy to make and not a month wait lol. Tuesday & Thursday I would also like recommendations on things to do and places to eat. We have no plans those days so we may just wonder around. My daughter wants to go to FAO Schwartz, Dylan's Candy Bar(not necessarily to eat a meal), & we will spend some time in Central Park once we move over to Empire Hotel. I know people say not to eat in Times Square because it's a tourist trap and we don't mind catching subway or bus to destinations though we are walkers too. Thanks for suggestions :-)
