Passover/seder meal in Manhattan

My brother is coming to visit Manhattan/Brooklyn during passover, and he wants to teach his two young kids about passover (also his wife is a vegetarian, to make things more complicated) and is looking for a seder meal that is open to anyone (none of us are Jewish, but he wants to teach his kids about world religions and about respecting different traditions). Anyone know of a good restaurant that is kid friendly, where waiters are knowledgeable and would be willing to talk about some of the foods? Or another venue that would be open would be good. I saw a couple of passover threads, but nothing caught my eye. Thanks for any leads you can provide!

Cheap, Everyday Eats in Carroll Gardens

Thanks everyone. I'm going to try these places. Anyone else have suggestions? Are there places in Park Slope that'll do delivery to Carroll Gardens? I'm totally new to the area, but I guess to those others who are also new, you would be remiss to not check out the food vendors at the Red Hook ballfields. Now that's some good food: http://events.nytimes.com/2006/08/23/...

Cheap, Everyday Eats in Carroll Gardens

I just moved from Union Sq/East Village to Carroll Gardens, and I'm trying to find about a dozen everyday places that I can eat. I know that Smith Street has tons of great restaurants, but most of them are pretty expensive, and not the sort of everyday fare I'm looking for. I've also seen many good delis, but they appear to be closed after 6 on weekdays, which is a problem.

So where do you go out to eat everyday? I've found Zaytoon's and this little place with fried chicken on Degraw and Clinton. But I've only been here for a week.
