Times Square rec.

I need a recommendation for a Times Square restaurant for three children (4,4,& 6) that's not too horrible for adults. Thanks.

  1. It would be helpful to know if these children are picky eater or budding Chowhounds. That said...

    Virgil's BBQ, on 44th St., b/t B'way & 6th Av., is kid-friendly. Very popular, so reservations are a must!

    John's Pizzeria is on 44th, b/t 7th & 8th Avs.

    1. re: RGR

      Agree with both of these suggestions.

    2. I second John's; I would also reccomend Carmines.

      1. My neice and nephew beg their Aunt Annie to take them to Carmie's whenever they come visit me in the city. I dont know if they love the huge platters of food- or the fact that I always order the Titanic dessert- which is a HUGE ice cream sundae. Kids always love good italian food.

        I also had great luck with them at John's- great pizza, but not as fun an atmosphere as Carmines.

        1. I reccomend Carmines (make reservations!), Ruby Foos, John's, Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridian

          1. Love Virgil's BBQ, so i second that. Also, Carmine's is family style, so is easy to do with a family.

            If you want to go with Italian food (always easy to please the kiddies), i'd say Trattoria Tri Colori is a good choice. Since it's in Times Square, if you go after 7:30pm, it's rather empty and a bit easier to make noise, etc. and not feel like you're disturbing people.
