Need help with family coming to the city

  • y

hi all:

my girlfriend's family (7 including us) will be coming in this weekend for dinner, etc.

we were recommended Carmine's but they are out of reservations for saturday.

i need a decent place (they're not foodies and will have two 10 year olds with them) that will accomodate us without breaking the bank.

no real food type preferences, but i don't want to take them out to chinese -- they can get that at home.

any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated and would probably end my headache!

  1. If Carmine's is their speed than you should try for Tony's de Napoli on Second Ave at 84 Street. Same thing as Carmine's but the food is somewhat better.

      Also, try Gabriela's at 93rd & Amsterdam ... and Gabriela's Kitchen on Amsterdam in the 70s. Both owned by the same folks. Good Mexican food and child friendly. And not pricey.
