Kid Friendly Brunch around Midtown West Side

Hi folks,

I've got family coming into Penn Station Saturday morning and I'm looking for a place between Penn and the theater district that would be good for brunch with a 5 year old. He's a pretty adventurous eater so any cuisine would be welcome. Thanks.

Italian around Union Square?

Thanks for all the great recommendations. You guys rock. Final choice may come down to time and location.

Italian around Union Square?

I'm looking for a good, moderately priced Italian place within a few blocks of Union Sq. for a pre-movie dinner this Friday night. We've got a fussy eater with us who only eats pizza and pasta and I'm looking for a casual, sit down place that can fit 3 walk-ins on a Friday evening. Any recs would be greatly appreciated.

Pizza place around Penn Station

I need a rec for a good pizza place around Penn Station/MSG that delivers for a moving day pizza party. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ISO Grass Fed Chuck Roast

I'm planning a Pot Roast dinner to impress and am looking for a higher quality of meat than I usually get at my local butcher. I was thinking of hitting the Farmer's Market in Union Square but I've never bought anything from the beef guy. Is there a better place for Grass Fed beef? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Grandaisy Bakery & Fay Da Bakery: moving north!

Thanks for the heads up. It turns out it's only a few doors down from my office building. I can't believe I never spotted it before. I was so thrilled to have it in the neighborhood I stopped by at lunch time and got some goodies for everyone in the office.

Grandaisy Bakery & Fay Da Bakery: moving north!

Do you know where on 34th and 7th Fay Da opened? I work around Penn Station and I walked around today at lunch looking for it and couldn't find it. There's nothing on the website either. Thanks.

UWS recs for casual (inexpensive) dinner tomorrow

Thanks for all the great recommendations. I'm going to bounce these off the rest of my party and see where we end up.

UWS recs for casual (inexpensive) dinner tomorrow

Hi,

I've been lurking on the board for a few months and am amazed at the food knowledge of you folks. So I thought I'd pick your brains for a rec in an area I don't get to very often.

I'm meeting friends for drinks tomorrow night, low 70's and Columbus. I wanted to grab an early dinner before that. Any place around the area that doesn't require reservations and has good food? Any type of cuisine is fine. I don't want to get stuck at BBQ's again.

Thanks
