need great rest. for 2 foodies at heart with 2 kids under 6

We are staying in Times Square for 3 days in May. I dont mind going out of TimesSquare for dinner. My daugther is celebrating her 6th birthday, I found places for breakfast and lunch, I am planning on Serendipity and Ellens Stardust Diner for lunch. I am looking for dinner options for Friday and Saturday night. I really dont have a hard budget, would like to keep each night under $250.00! My husband and I would like the option of cocktails at dinner. My main goal is find a place that will fill both needs, I would love to dine a Craft, La Silhoutte, the Modern Bar Room... but there really isnt anything for the kids... they do like pasta, seafood, steak...

We are taking my 6 & 4 year old girls to NYC for a long weekend, I would love to take them to some great places that are not chains! I could use some suggestions so my husband and my elf get a great meal and the kids are happy too!
We love everything and so do the kids, any suggestions?

Traveling to Nassau 10/7/09 ~ 5th wedding ann. and looking for a great night out!

We are staying at the Breezes resort for 5 nights a very well needed break fro the reality of two kids under 3! It is our first time to the Bahamas, I was wondering about a great place out, not looking to drop $300- on dinner but want something really nice and fun! Any thoughts on the Columbus Tavern?
Also something local, not a watered down tourist attraction for great local cuisine!
Thanks!

Friday night dinner in the burbs?

If you like BYOB's there are these are a few GREAT ones to try in Chester County.. all have websites..
Sovana Bistro in Kennett Square , This is my favorite, awesome decor...the food just melts in your mouth. They use alot of local ingredients and menu chages with the seasons.
Catherine's in Unionville - Great traditional Chester County setting, Lamb is really good!
Majolic in Phoexville - Food is amazing...Make a reservation.
The Orchard in Kennett Square - Contempary desing, good food!
High Street Cafe in West Chester - Fun New Orleans style, and you can talk a walk in West chester after dinner.
Fioravanti in Downingtown, very small, limited menu , but very good.
The Creme de la Creme is Gilmores in West Chester, expensive but oh so wotht it!

Stop, Thief!

It is a rule when we go out to dinner, Everyone orders something different and everyone gets a bit of everything! No we do not go stabbing around at everyone- like civilized people we use a bread plate! We all like to taste everything and it makes for more fun!!!
