        Didn't Bruni say he loved taking kids to Rosa Mexicano?

          We've been to the UWS location with other peoples' kids and it's been just fine.

            Just thought of another place - Stand - for great burgers, fries and shakes, and microbrews on tap for adults.

          Max Brenner @broadway b/w 13 and 14th is great for kids . The food is decent for adults but really geared for kids plus its fun- chocolate theme throughout/theme store upfront/ fun kids food items... Could also try otto @8th st and 5th ave which is quite good for everybody - thin crust pizzas & great gelato too.Other choices if want very casual is grey dog coffee @ university and 11th/12th street i would imagine is easy to satisfy for kids. Havent been to chat and chew in a few years but as winemonkey suggested im sure it contines to be a good place for families with large portions of "comfort" f.ood

            I second Max Brener, although if the kids like Asian food, Saigon Grill on University is very kid-friendly and delicious.

              I'm not a huge fan of MB, but I have to admit they make a mean veggie burger. The patty's homemade and super tasty, like a large croquette - crispy on the outside, soft and moist on the inside.

              Big Daddy's Diner, hands down. Excellent "comfort food" and fun nostalgic atmosphere packed with pop culture memorabilia from the 1950s thtough the 1990s. Great burgers, chili, breakfast items, homemade sky-hihh layer cakes and milkshakes, aside from fun items such as alphabet soup and tater tots. It's not very sophisticated, but it makes "kid food" delicious enough for grown-ups and they'll have a blast. Park Ave.So. betw. 18th & 19th.
