The Spotted Pig
Taïm
Keste
Katz's
Barney Greengrass
The Shake Shack
Cafe Sabarsky
Nick's Pizza
The Green Table
'ino
City Bakery
Momofuku
Balthazar
Mamoun's

I better be hungry during my trip :)

Ooh thank you rose water for these recommendations. Arturo's and The Green Table both look amazing. I'm going to have to schedule several MORE dinners just so I can go and try all these places.

You chowhounds are life-savers!

Ha, a booth is an excellent idea. I'm not a parent myself, and most of my friends in Hawaii do not have kids yet, so this is all new territory for me!

Thanks sugartoof! These are not my kids, so I don't want to make any promises about them being well-behaved, but I'm crossing my fingers that's the case.

I definitely want to call ahead no matter where we go, because 8 adults +2 kids is quite a large group. Co. looks DELICIOUS, so thank you for that recommendation. Amy Ruth's also looks delicious, but because of the vegetarian thing, I think I'll save that one for the future.

Great idea to search with groups/vegetarian search terms. I was so focused on the toddler thing that this didn't even occur to me. Will do!

Thanks Mike! That's a helpful tip. I'll go do a bit more scouting.

Kid-Friendly (Without Being Boring for the Adults) Restaurants on the West Side

I'll be visiting Manhattan from Honolulu in a couple weeks, and looking to get together with some old friends over dinner. I'd love some recommendations for a good restaurant for a group of eight adults and two toddlers, somewhere on the west side between Houston and 125th. It should be cheap-ish (entrees under $20). Also, two of the diners are vegetarian so it needs to have something for them. Coming from Hawaii, I'd tend to prefer something other than pacific rim or east asian, because we already get a lot of really great asian and pacific rim cuisine here.

I did a few searches, but I wasn't sure about the price range for a lot of the suggestions, and a lot of people also seemed to be looking for Chinese or specifically pre-theater places. We're also less interested in burger places like Shake Shack. Previous recommendations that looked promising included Otto, Chelsea Ristorante, Keste, and Kefi. Would any of those work?

Or, other ideas? Suggestions? Thank you!
