dinner uptown with kids?...and cheap?

I'm looking for a casual place, UES, UWS, or beyond, suitable for bringing children, with good vegetarian options. Should also be cheap. Any ideas?

  1. What kind of food are you looking for?

    If you are interested in Vietnamese, I can recommend Saigon Grill on 91st and Amsterdam. Very affordable, casual, and I've seen many families there with children (the tables are not too close together).

      Thanks for the recommendation. I've been to Saigon Grill and liked it quite a bit. I do remember it as being pretty fast-paced and loud, which could either work well with kids or just make the whole experience over-stimulating and crazy. Perhaps I'm thinking about it too much.

      As for what kind of food, we're pretty open. The kids are pretty adventurous eaters. And the adults like everything.
