South St. Seaport - Lunch on Saturday - 10 kids, 4 adults

I am bringing a group of 10 teens to the Bodies Exhibit on a Saturday. At some point, they will need to be fed. Here's the criteria:
*Can't be over $15/pp. would prefer it being a bit less.
*Kid-friendly (In other words, no "wierd" food, like sushi)
*Burgers and sandwiches preferred.
*And the most important - can accomodate 14 people. (If they accept reservations, then that would be a HUGE wieght off my shoulders.)

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much in advance!

  1. Il Brigante is a block away, kid friendly (pizza), no outdoor cafe. Another option is The Paris, 2 blocks away from Bodies, no outdoor cafe. Paris - nothing gourmet, but kid friendly, burgers, etc. Meade's has an outdoor cafe and might be able to accomodate your group outside, has games for the kids to play (Connect 4, etc.), burgers. Food at Meade's is a little better than The Paris. You might want to do a search of this site for recent comments on these places and more ideas.

      Do you have addresses for these places?

      Thanks so much!

        *Il Brigante is on Front Street (next door to Carmines), not on yet
        *Meade's is on corner Peck Slip & Water (they can only fit you outdoors, I think upstairs is being renovated?). Lee is the manager. Meade's is owned by Jeremy's Ale House (a bit too frat house for your group) owners Not on yet
        *The Paris (pubby, landmarked) is on corner South Street & Peck Slip (they ARE on, you can get phone # there and read non-CH review, maybe see a menu if it is posted). The Paris is a good value, food is good not great.
        *There's also Carmine's (family friendly) but the food (with a few exceptions) really isn't too good.

        All are within 2 blocks of Bodies but a bit away from the touristy/mall part.

        If you want to go further I'd suggest Chinatown. Most of the food in Little Italy is not that good and it's too touristy.

        Have fun and enjoy!

          Don't forget to make reservations! (or you might end up at the Seaport's Food Court) All these places are fairly small.
